These are exactly what I have been searching for. I had contacted the seller when I saw that they were sadly sold out. She said that she had run out of this particular fabric. Within a few days she got in touch to let me know she had tracked down more of this fabric. They are well made, nice to look at, and the fit allows for control of whatever hot item is being removed from oven, as compared to the huge fit of most sold in stores that are more aptly made to accommodate the hands of sumo wrestlers. They shipped quickly and were packaged with great care. I wish I would have looked to Etsy sooner for oven gloves.

Great pattern. Took to Fed Ex Print Shop as you suggested and got the templates printed out on large paper. Great pictures with instructions.

About

I'm Happy When I'm Sewing

Here's all you really need to know about me... I am happy when I'm sewing. = ) It's my zen place, my escape and my joy. Fabrics feel like home and the sound of the machine is like music.

And sewing may be part of my genetic make-up -- my grandmas were both seamstresses and made their own patterns, and my mom sews too. 



Going to the fabric store was one of my favorite things to do as a kid (and as an adult). I love all the colors, patterns and textures of the different fabrics. When I was 12, I saved my allowance for months to buy my own fancy sewing scissors. That same year I received my first sewing machine as a birthday gift from my mom (my beloved Bernina I still use!) My mom put me on the path to becoming a textile artist and seamstress and eventually I ended up in 4-H where I began developing my skills. 



After 10 years in a graphic design career and sewing in my free time, I pursued my fashion design degree. I've done a lot of work for interior designers, including my sister, creating one-of-a-kind window coverings, pillows and cushions for their clients. And in my Etsy store, I like to experiment with new patterns, fabrics and ideas, making unique and custom items.

I am married with two children and life is crazy busy. We have a 13 year old son we homeschool, and a 4 year old daughter. Our sweet Jenna was born with a disease called LCH. Her treatment occupied most of the first four years of her life. She has been in remission for a over 3 years and is now waiting for a liver transplant. You can read about our journey on my website at http://www.tiffinydesigns.com. I also work full-time now for a marketing company called Kick-Fire Marketing.

I don't have a lot of time to sew but when I do, it makes me so happy. Please, take advantage of my passion and get yourself something good!

I accept PayPal (which accepts all major credit cards and e-checks). PayPal is an online service where you can easily pay with debit or credit cards or e-checks with or without a PayPal account. For more information go to https://www.paypal.com/

I also accept most credit cards through Etsy's direct checkout.

Non-US shoppers: Prices are in US dollars and Paypal will automatically convert $ into your currency for you. Here is a link to a universal currency converter: http://www.xe.com/ucc/

If you pay with an e-check I will not ship your item until the check is cleared and confirmed from Paypal.
Shipping
I ship worldwide... Each listing indicates the type of shipping for that particular item. Shipping upgrades are available upon request with additional applicable charges. Please contact me before checkout if you would like to upgrade your shipping. All U.S. shipments are sent with Delivery Confirmation.

I usually ship within 3 business days of receiving payment. Made-to-order items may take up to 3 weeks to make and ship (but usually take less than 10 days). (For patterns, see below.)

All shipments are insured.

***Please keep in mind, overseas shipments may incur custom fees/import taxes that the buyer is required to pay. I have no control over this and won't be held responsible for any extra fees or taxes charged after I have shipped the package.***

***Please make sure that your Etsy addresses is correct.*** This is the address I will ship to.

If you've ordered a PDF pattern, you will receive an email after payment is received with directions on how to download your PDF files.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please remember that everything here is handmade and there will be irregularities and tiny flaws in the materials used and in the construction. And depending on your computer monitor, the colors viewed may or may not be accurate.

With those things in mind, if you are unhappy with your handmade item, please contact me within 5 days of receiving your item and we will work something out. Should we agree on a return and refund, the cost of the product only will be refunded, not the shipping.

I can only accept returned items that return to me free of odors (cigarette, perfume, pet) and in saleable condition. Thank you for your understanding.

Because of the nature of patterns, there will be no returns accepted nor refunds offered on my PDF patterns and tutorials.
Additional policies and FAQs
I love custom orders and am happy to hear your special requests. Feel free to contact me through the etsy message system. Custom orders may incur an additional $5 minimum charge for the extra time it takes to plan and make.
