About

Who doesn't love a finely crafted, handmade item?

When I was 10 years old I made a small bag for my marbles out of black floral corduroy. I thought it was so awesome I then made one for my brother and one for my sister. That was in 1973 and I've been sewing and crafting ever since.


The leather cuffs...
I've always loved the look and feel (and smell!) of real leather. About ten years ago I started dabbling in leatherwork, got distracted by ceramics for a few years, then back to leather.

I can't get enough of this leather! As leather cuffs have become popular, it made sense to focus my efforts there. The possibilities are endless and they're fun to wear.

The setup ...
Our basement is currently under construction being made into a studio for my crafting, so right now I'm nicely set up in the sunroom and have hi-jacked the ping pong table. What an awesome crafting table, right?!

Off one end of the table I have my leatherworking station, and on the other end my sewing stations. In between is a great place to cut stuff out.

Speaking of sewing brings me to the travel bags...

Several years ago, when it became common to have your luggage inspected at the airport, I decided I wanted a small bag to pack my underwear in. Something that was lightweight, breathable, easy to launder, not see-through, didn't take up much room, and would provide me with that extra bit of privacy when I travel. I made a small bag out of t-shirt material and have been using it ever since.

Last year I started making these bags for others, and branded them The StowAway bag. It was with these bags that I first opened my Etsy shop.

And besides just using a StowAway bag for underwear I have discovered they're equally handy to pack cosmetics, toiletries, medications, or electronics chargers.

All of my bags are made of cotton or cotton blend fabrics and are intended to be machine washed and tumbled dry. The bags are all pre-washed by me so they're ready to travel when you are!

Each bag is handmade by me, as is each leather cuff.

Thank you for taking an interest in my story. As for me, I'm off to make something! ;)

Returns and exchanges
Refunds/Returns: If you are not happy with your purchase then neither am I. I have done my best to represent the color, size and quality of the items in my photos, but I do understand that returns sometimes happen. Please notify me before returning and within seven days of receiving the item. Sorry, shipping costs are non-refundable, and the return shipping costs will also be borne by the buyer.

Damages: Please notify me within 48 hours of receiving your order if it is damaged in any way. Send a convo along with pictures of the package and damaged items. Keep the damaged items and packaging in case USPS requests an inspection.

Lost Shipment: If your package never arrives let me know and I will do my best to help track it down. If USPS tracking shows the item as "delivered" and you still don't have it, please contact USPS.
Payment
Payments: This shop uses Etsy Direct Checkout, which accepts PayPal, credit cards, and Etsy gift cards.

Cancellations: If you need to cancel your order, please notify me right away since I ship every day. If your order hasn't been shipped yet cancelling is easily done with the press of a button. If it has shipped, it's too late to cancel. You could then request a return (see below).
Shipping
Shipping: All of my items are shipped in a 9 x 6 padded mailer unless you order more than two or request otherwise.

I use Etsy's label feature that forwards the tracking number to the buyer. I also ship packages every day to offer you the quickest possible turnaround time.

StowAway bags: I ship all packages USPS according to your selection at checkout.

Leather cuffs: I ship all packages USPS Priority.


International orders: As with domestic shipping, all international orders will be given a tracking number. If you need an invoice placed on the inside or outside of an order, please request such at time of order. Any other charges incurred by the package (duties, taxes, etc) will be the responsibility of the buyer. Packages will not be marked as "gifts" at this time.
