LOVE! THESE!!! I got the package in the mail (in something like two days!) and knew it was from your shop before I even saw the address ... it smelled like lavender! Thanks so much for the bookmarks and the extra t-shirt braids thrown in. I use the t-shirt braids on my keys to find them in the house (they're nice and bright and always easy to spot) ... and also loop the braid around my wrist when I'm out digging through the trunk of the car so I don't accidentally lock them in! Basically I slip the tie through the key ring, double it at the top (like a piece of folded thread through a needle) and put a simple knot in the end to make the loop. Keep meaning to post a pic ... but never remember. Maybe next time (because you KNOW I'll be back)! Always a favorite shop ... and ALWAYS so thoughtful ... thanks so much!!!

I love these. I give them as gifts every Christmas!
Recreations, patchwork, strips, crazy quilting and just my own messed up, random work is what I do. Hand embroidery and/or stitching, can be found on select pieces -- as well as tons of color. I do use a sewing machine to the best of my abilities.
Reworking garments into bags, scarves, jewelry, patches and other creations is fun too. In addition to the fabric creations, paper and other material are always calling me: bookmarks, journals, altered things, bits and pieces of artsy crafty items keep happening.
If you like things funky, unique, playful, profound and friendly, then click away!
Accepted payment methods
Returns and exchanges
Payments for ALL purchases are due with order.
I LOVE PAY PAL!
No other form of payment is accepted.
ATTN: CALIFORNIA CUSTOMERS -- there will be sales tax.
Typically, items will be shipped, USPS, on the next business day (Monday thru Friday, discounting American holidays) once payment is received and confirmed through Pay Pal. For custom orders, see shipping notes in item description.
Look at some of my feedback regarding shipping -- I always will ship ASAP using the USPS. For destash items and books, shipping will be Media Mail (slloooooww) when an item qualifies -- contact me if you would like to pay for quicker shipping.
SANTA CRUZ COUNTY -- if you're in Santa Cruz, we can arrange a meeting for a pick-up/drop-off. Just go ahead and place your order and pay through Pay Pal -- then when we meet, I'll refund any shipping charges in cash.
SHIPPING: outside the USA at YOUR OWN RISK and AT YOUR OWN EXPENSE ...
Contact me for shipping outside of the US and, hopefully, we can arrange it.
Because tracking is not available on international shipments, all packages to destinations outside the USA (including to Canada, US territories and/or US military bases) are shipped at the buyer's own risk. For all international shipping I will use the USPS exclusively.
All duty, customs, taxes and other fees are the responsibility of the buyer. Packages that are refused due to customs and duty fees or mysteriously disappear and are never seen again will not be refunded.
I have successfully shipped to Canada, Norway, Australia and the UK. So far, nothing has ever failed to arrive. Canada though, is painfully sloooowwwwww. Hey, but they have universal healthcare! "Oh Canada ..."
Additional policies and FAQs
At this time I am NOT doing any custom work ... :(, but check out my other stuff!
GENERAL CARE INSTRUCTIONS:
CARE INSTRUCTIONS for shawls, scarves, bags, quilts and other fabric creations.
Hand Made with Love in the People’s Republic of Northern California. Mostly made with cotton, cotton, cotton -- may contain a bit of linen, hemp, flax or other natural fibers. Because some (or a lot) of the material may be old, vintage, used, etc. please handle with care. Wash gently in cold, cold water with a mild, mild detergent. Hang in the breeze for best drying, but not in the sun; okay to tumble dry on low. Remember: sun, salt, heat or bleach = fading. Which will probably happen anyway over time.
!!!!!! SHREDDED T-Shirt Scarves !!!!! -- you MUST put them into a garment bag if machine washing and/or tumble drying ... or you will have a knotty mess. Don't come crying to me, I warned you. All work is impermanent and Guaranteed to fray, soften, wear and fade a bit, just like the Velveteen Rabbit, with use and love. If something tears or rips, just sew it up.
