About

Sharing love and magic with each creation

My role model and greatest influence is my grandmother. Prior to dementia stealing her brilliant mind she was a volunteer, caretaker, helper and in her "downtime" a seamstress. I spent many hours at her home growing up, while my parents worked. She had a sewing area in her kitchen and she never minded me helping. Fast forward 15-20 years later, and I am a stay at home mom of two. I began my first shop logi n luker at a sewing area in my kitchen. Wanting to continue staying home with my boys and have a creative outlet I decided to start sewing for my boys. First I converted onesies to t-shirts, then decided to try my hand at some bibs. Wanting to share my waterproof but fashionable bibs was why I created logi n luker (after my two boys). We added more products and quickly outgrew our kitchen space. I found that making bags and blankets gave me a little spark, and we were expected a third Little. Although our third ended in a loss I still wanted to honor all of my little sewing helpers, and this is why we changed our name to Sew This is Love. Each piece has a little piece of my heart and a little bit of magic. Enjoy.

    I am a mother of two loving boys. They are my inspiration to start this business, and the reason I am up until the wee hours sewing away. My role model and greatest influence is my grandmother, and I hope to take after her and her sewing abilities.

If you ever find an issue, please allow me to discuss it before leaving any negative feedback, my work is very important to me! I would be more than happy to resolve any matter.

International buyers please be sure to read shipping policies before purchasing.

Conditions of exchange
Exchanged can only be done for an incorrect size of moccasins. Contact must be made within 5 days, and mailed out within 14 days. Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value. Please keep in mind that some items I may not be able to replicate so please be sure to double check sizes. All other items may NOT be exchanged.
Payment
Payments must be completed prior to item being mailed. You have 12 hours from the payment time to cancel your payment but a 10% fee will be removed.
Shipping
For most items you will have the ability to choose what type of shipping you would like. If you need your item by a certain date please check processing times and select correct shipping. I will not expedite shipping unless it has been paid for. Once the package has shipped it is out of my control and is in the hands of the USPS. If there are problems with shipping I will help as best as I can, but please understand that I am unable to control shipping.

Processing time
The time I need to prepare an order for shipping varies. For details, see individual items.

International Shipping, Customs and Import Taxes
Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs. When shipping internationally I recommend purchasing at least Priority Mail International. First Class International may not be tracked once it has left the United States and delivery time varies from location. Typically it can take 4-8 weeks, and I can not guarantee arrival. Due to the package not having tracking all first class international packages will not be refunded due to missing packages, please keep this in mind when selecting your shipping option.
Additional policies and FAQs
How are prices for handmade figured out? ​

In the handmade world we've heard comments like "I've been to JoAnn's and I've seen the price of fabric, why is your bag so much?" "I could buy a bag for more than half the price at a store" etc. I wanted to share with you what exactly goes into the products and determines the pricing.

Let's talk about our purse bags. First we'll start with the obvious - fabric. Fabric at JoAnn's is typically $6-12 a yard, on sale. Designer quilting fabrics are around $9-17 a yard, plus shipping. Custom fabrics run about $25-30 a yard, plus shipping. Don't forget I'll need fabric for the outside and the inside. Now fabric isn't the only thing that we use to create the bag. We may also use...
• Vinyl, $12-27 a yard
• Heavy Interfacing
• Ultra Firm Interfacing
• Midweight Interfacing
• Fleece/Foam
• Zippers
• Rivets
• Rings/Hooks Hardware

We also need to consider the price of these supplies...
• Thread
• Needles
• Bobbins
• Scissors
• Rotary Cutter/Blades
• Rotary Mat
• Pens/Marking Tools
• Pins/Clips
• Patterns
• Sewing Machine
• Iron/Ironing Board


Now on top of that, I need to pay myself or employee for the time it takes to make the bag. No one works for free. Oh and then there is the cost of shipping bags, business cards, thank you cards, stickers, tissue paper, printer, ink, paper, advertising, props, craft shows, website fees and credit card processing fees.


This is the typical formula you will see online:
Supplies + Labor = Item Cost
Item Cost x Markup = Wholesale Price
Wholesale Price x Markup = Retail Price
If I sold items at cost I would ultimately loose money and go out of business. ​Markup covers the supplies like sewing machine, thread, bobbins, needles, printer, iron, cards etc. and profit. The recommended markup is 1.5-2.5.

Just for fun lets apply the recommended formulas compared to our pricing

Small Zip Bag $7
Exterior Fabric - JoAnn $0.18
Interior Fabric - JoAnn $0.08
Heavy Interfacing $0.04
7" Zipper $0.14
Total Material Cost $0.87
Labor Time - 25 min at $10/hour
Item Cost - $5.01 ($0.87 + $4.14)
Wholesale Price - $10.02 ($5.01 x 2)
Retail Price - $20.04 ($10.94 x 2)

​Perdita Diaper Bag • $85.00
Exterior Fabric - Custom $8.89
Interior Fabric - JoAnn $4.36
Sparkle Vinyl $5.87
Heavy Interfacing $2.50
Midweight Interfacing $0.40
Fusible Fleece
7" Zipper $0.47
14" Zipper $0.55
Rectangle Loops $2.30
Total Material Cost $26.64
Labor Time - 3.5 hours, at $10/hour
Item Cost - $66.64 ($26.64 + $35)
Wholesale Price - $133.28 ($66.64 x 2)
Retail Price - $266.56 ($133.28 x 2)

I obviously don't use this formula to create my pricing (seen in bold next to the item name). I want to give my customers the best value as possible, but still make a small profit. I hope you found this interesting and informative. As always if you ever have questions please don't hesitate to ask!!
