About ApronsNBows

Sales 1,826
On Etsy since 2012

Welcome to Aprons N' Bows!

Welcome to ApronsNBows!

I am proud to say I started this business in March 2012, just after my third child was born. When I was just a little girl I dreamt about being a business owner, but I also wanted to be a stay at home mother. With my inherent talents for sewing and my eye for design, I knew I had the seed for something special.

I have always been drawn to home economics, specifically sewing, designing and baking. As I watched my three beautiful children starting to grow, I realized just how much I wanted to create clothing for them. There is something special in a hand sewn garment; it is personal and unique, just like my children. Aprons combine my love of baking, sewing and designing and were a perfect fit for my growing business.

The name Aprons N' Bows came to me one night in a dream, the bow part actually refers to the bows and embellishments on my designs. I am most proud of my original designs; many of the items you will see in my store are the results of hours of hard work. I am also extremely proud to be a role model for my children. They love to be involved in the creative process, whether it is clipping a thread, helping pick out new fabrics or just giving their opinions on my sketches.

I strongly believe in the values of home economics, and to be able to teach my children how to successfully create and run a business while taking care of a family is a lesson that I consider invaluable. I also strongly believe in supporting other small business. Whenever possible, I choose to support families because I know when I spend my money with them it is appreciated. Many of my fabrics are sourced from work at home mothers like I, and while I recognize supporting small business can cost a little more upfront, the quality and ethics of this transaction is worth far more than a few dollars saved when the rest is given to a corporation.

I want to close by thanking you for considering my store. If you do decide to purchase from me, please know that even a single purchase helps support not only my family, but the families of the other small business owners I work with every day. Thank You!!

** Shipping Address **

- It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure correct shipping address at the time of order placement, and Aprons N' Bows is released from any liability should the customer order with an incorrect address.
- Current Etsy Protection requirements do not allow for postage to addresses other than those listed on your Etsy account, and as such I will only ship to confirmed addresses.

- Aprons N' Bows is released from liability for delays in shipping once a package has left our care.

Additional policies and FAQs
Here is how ordering a t-shirt quilt by Aprons N' Bows works:

Step 1: Gather the shirts you would like to use. Count how many shirts you have and determine what size quilt you would like. Send in your shirts washed and ready to be re-purposed. Please bear in mind, if your shirts have tears or stains, they will still have tears and stains while in quilt form. I try my best to repair small holes when possible and cut around stains, but sometimes it is not always possible.

Step 2: Decide what quilt style would fit the theme of your shirts and personal taste. Here are a couple links:
~Mosiac: https://www.etsy.com/listing/234055882/mosaic-t-shirt-quilt-mosaic-t-shirt?ref=shop_home_feat_2
~Standard: https://www.etsy.com/listing/234990850/t-shirt-quilt-standard-t-shirt-quilt-t?ref=related-1
~Sashed: https://www.etsy.com/listing/231818148/custom-sashed-t-shirt-quilt-custom?ref=shop_home_active_14
~Rag Edge: https://www.etsy.com/listing/244598907/rag-quilt-rag-edge-baby-quilt-baby?ref=related-1

Step 3: Purchase the quilt package that you would like that matches the quilt style and size of finished quilt you would like. Don't forget to pick a backing color ;)

Step 4: Pack up your shirts to mail in. Flat rate shipping via USPS seems like a good option for many. You are responsible for shipping costs to the shop. I will send you a message via Etsy after your payment has cleared letting you know the shipping address.

Step 5: I will send you a message when your shirts have been received.

Step 6: Sit back while I do the work! I will message you if I have any questions during the process.

Step 7: I mail your completed quilt back to you. You are now ready to cuddle up with a good book and enjoy your cuddly new quilt :)

Feel free to message me and ask any questions you may have! I am here to help you create the perfect tee shirt quilt :)
