I'm working on some little gals in this same fabric this week :) coming soon!
This amazing one of a kind beach bag was sewn with the most amazing metallic rainbow thread! Love it! On sale now in my Etsy shop.
I spent the week painting this old bratz doll house I found left on our street up in the monster high fashion! I made this cute victorian couch out of one of my favorite cut velvets, draculara style, 4 my Z bird. There's a few bags in my shop in it too!

About

I make Art. As beautiful on the Inside, as it is on the Outside. It's Something Timeless, Glamourous & A "Wee Bee" Bit Wild.

My shop was created from my three passions.
Painting, Yoga Anatomy & Sewing!
I LOVE figuring out how things are put together.
Science, biology and how living things work, has always been magical
to me. Currently, I teach painting classes & parties here in Alameda, CA. I can teach anyone to paint, even if you haven't done it since grade school. I love learning about all the parts and seeing how they move and work together. Ultimately, the parts come together creating a beauty filled piece of artwork & that's just awe inspiring to me.
Sewing works the same way.
It's breaking down a form into its pieces and putting them together
to make this functional, highly useful piece of art.
I take an idea for something, create patterns & build off what I already know.
Then, I try to make it even better.
Every single carpet bag is 100% handcrafted by me in my little studio at home.
I'm an artist true blue, so I only make very small batches of creative works. Most pieces are One Of A Kind and nothing I make is mass produced. When you choose to support my YogaBee Vintage Etsy Shop, you are supporting my family. For this, I thank you from the bottom of my buzzing little queen bee heart!
I'm always creating, inventing, dreaming & plotting ways to express the world I live in.
All of this, I can honestly say with 100% Assurance, was built on LOVE....Pure Love.
It has not been a simple road; it's paved with the mud of failures, fractures & faults. I am always in the process of learning, growing and changing...
My Life, like my Art work is Unique & Hand Crafted with Love.

Thank you so much for visiting my little shop!

Much Love,
Molly P & Family :)

Shop policies

Last updated on March 3, 2015
Hello, Welcome to YogaBee Vintage!
I want you to have the best buying experience possible from my little shop so here are a few things to note before you get started.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I except Paypal for payment.
Your transaction will not be complete until your payment is complete.
This goes for all custom work as well, I will not begin making any designs, purses, paintings, or toys until we are in 100% agreement on what you would like and expect.

I also Accept Payment via the direct checkout option on Etsy. You can choose to use your debit card or credit card for this payment option. ETSY does not share your card information with me. Both options are safe and secure methods of payment.

Please NOTE: On average, for every custom order placed, there are five other people who contacted me wanting something custom made that I never heard back from.
I sometimes have to pull fabric, photograph, and email back and forth in order to get to an understanding on what you would like.
I NOW ask for a 5.00 consultation fee upfront. This let's me know you are serious about wanting something created and not wasting my precious time. It will be deducted from you final price should you decide to have me make you something FABULOUS!
If you decide to opt out, this fee is forfeited to me for the above time I spent emailing, photographing, and generally going out of my way to try and work with you & your custom One Of A Kind vision. I'm an artist and I simply, do not work for free.
Thanks for understanding.


I DO accept layaway plans. In most cases, we can break a full payment up into a maximum of three installments. I ask a larger 1st payment after which time, I will begin working on your item. EX. ( 50%, 25%, 25%) After full payment is received, I will ship your item to you. I will create a special RESERVED listing just for you and only you. From time to time, I may add pictures to your listing showing the progress on your item. That's the fun part! You get to see your piece being created!!!!
I'll give you a time line depending on how intricate the work may be for completion. On average, you can expect your item in your hands, within 4-6 weeks.
On layaway items, generally, I will have your item finished and completed and ready to ship by the time payment is received in full.
Shipping
If the item goes out via US mail, the shipping price is listed below the items unless otherwise stated under the individual item.

*****************************************************************************************
PLEASE NOTE: I DO ship internationally.
PLEASE CONVO me directly before purchase if you are international.
I can create a Reserved Listing for you with specific shipping costs.
I tend to estimate higher on shipping costs and then I REFUND the difference via Paypal after I ship your item out within 24 hours.
Please let me know if you would like this item express shipped so I can adjust the shipping costs accordingly.
*****************************************************************************************
Refunds and Exchanges
I do not "normally" except returns.
I DO NOT except returns on custom made orders because these items are made to your specifications not mine. I will work with you to create the most beautiful item possible. If two fabrics don't play nice together, I will let you know and pull fabrics that blend fantastically together.
There are exceptions of course, to this depending on circumstance.
If you purchase an item as a gift for someone and they would rather have something else from my shop, they can send it back to me for shop credit as long as the item has not been used and all tags are still on the item. I can then create a custom reserved listing for the person minus shipping costs and any additional price fees. (I do not refund shipping costs).
If you have an issue with quality or craftsmanship, you may return the item (you pay shipping) to be examined within one week after receiving to be reexamined by me.
If I find a large flaw in the design, I might choose to issue a refund or repair the problem. (If the item appears used in any way or has been previously used by you. I will not except it for returns.)
I will not except returns based on a small thread or painting imperfection.
(Please understand that my handmade work is not made in a factory or on an assembly line. Each piece is individually handcrafted to my artistic standards of greatness. I am a perfectionist by nature, but I am far from perfect by personality. HAHAHAHA!
I am only human afterall. Though I secretly aspire to goddess-like stature)
A note on my craft"woman" ship. I have very high standards of love and quality for every single item I create. My stitches in most cases are double, triple stitched, surged and final detailing is hand sewn. I make my art & purses to be used, abused and last a magical lifetime.

Vintage Items are sold AS IS/ ALL SALES FINAL.
I do my best to try and represent the condition of items as accurately as physically possible. I have an excellent eye for detail. Any flaws will be noted, and are accounted for when I price items. If you have any issue with a vintage item purchase, please email me ASAP after you receive the item. I may ask to see photographs or if you are terribly unhappy, you may return the item with all tags and in original packaging, (you pay shipping) within 7 days after receiving for store credit.
I do not refund shipping charges.

If your item is lost or damaged in the mailing process:
I add a postal tracking number and insurance to each and every one of my gals. If for some reason your gal is late in arriving to you, you can contact the post office with the tracking number and insurance number I provided to you. The post office should refund you all costs for the item.


***************************************************************************************** Always Convo me if you have an issue or question. (Very Important)
I'm easy to work with and want you to be 100% Happy.

****************************************************************************************
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note: I do not always include a copy of an invoice with my items. For two reasons,
I feel it is a waste of paper. A copy of your order can be seen in your etsy profile and a copy is also sent to your email. So sending you another piece of paper seems redundant and wasteful to trees to me. I prefer to save my trees for beautiful gift wrapping instead. If you would like a paper invoice, just include this in the Note to seller when you purchase and I will put a paper receipt in your box.:)



~IN REGARDS TO CUSTOM ORDERS~

Please convo me if you would like something custom made. I have lots of different fabrics available and some may not be listed. I will work with you in piecing together the item of your dreams. I can also special order fabric and materials in order to create your vision as long as you are understanding that these projects are ALL 100% handcrafted by me. (I also have a buzzing 3 year old wee bee who ALWAYS gets top priority over my art) as such, please bee understanding of this commitment. In most cases, my time is relocated to small bursts when my wee bee is sleeping. Thank you so much! I look forward to working with you!

*****************************************************************************************
PLEASE NOTE: Once you purchase your custom listing, NO Additional Changes to design, size, fabric options, zipper sizes, or payment arrangements are to be made.
Custom items are made to your liking, not mine & switching and changing your mind after your order has been placed is NOT PERMITTED.
(I was too forgiving with this in the past & it caused a big ol' FAT hornet's nest full of problems for me. One bad little buglette ruined it for everyone. You must make ALL order changes BEFORE you purchase your listing. By purchasing your listing, you are agreeing to my terms, conditions and all shop policies.)
Sorry to be a Meany Bee about this one, but that's the way it's got to BEE for now on.

EXCEPTION: If you want to pay for a CHANGE TO CUSTOM ORDER LISTING:
There will be a 20.00 ORDER CHANGE FEE: (provided I am able to still make the existing change.) The window for this change is approximately 24 hours after you purchase your custom listing.
After this time,
NO ADDITIONAL CHANGES TO YOUR CUSTOM ORDER Can be made.


*****************************************************************************************

My STANDARD window of work time on ANY custom order, including custom yardage of fabric orders, is 4-6 weeks on even the smallest jobs. I do this to give myself some wiggle and not go crazy caring for my daughter & family. Please be understanding of this fact.
If you order another larger item, (Isabella or Mary Poppins Carpet Bag) these items can take me 2 or three months to ship out. (If you need it by a specific date, I will do my absolute best to see that it is in your hands before that set date,) ALWAYS FEEL free to email me and check up on your project, I usually respond within 24 to 48 hours to inquiries. I'm not a sweat shop in China, just one mama who makes amazing magical One of a kind pieces of artwork and handbags.
Magical things take time and a lot of focus on my part. Offering custom items adds a whole new layer of complexity to an order, so please be very understanding of this fact. I value my 100% positive, five star seller rating, so Pretty Please, CONVO ME if you are unhappy with any part of your YogaBee Vintage experience BEFORE leaving feedback if you are unhappy. I want you to have the best Buyer/ Seller experience. :)
All that said, Thank you Sew MUCH! for visiting my little slice of heaven.
This little magic shoppe keeps me home & able to take care for my wee one & pay off my college student loans. For that, I am sew incredibly THANKFUL!!!!

I look forward to working with you in the future.
(Again, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!)
Much Love,
Molly & Family.
