About

I like to sew!

I've been here on etsy for more than 10-years now and started out selling some things I'd sewn and stashed away.

After someone asked if I had a pattern for something I'd made, I decided to write my first pattern and haven't stopped since. In the last 8 years I've produced more than 70 patterns total! Whoa...

Etsy has been a real blessing in my life, and so many thanks to all my customers! I appreciate your support. :0]

Welcome to my etsy sewing shop! Please note that many of my listings are for sewing patterns and supplies and not the finished item (though I have some of those too).

Patterns are marked with "pattern" on the photo, title and description. These are digital patterns, so they can't be returned and all pattern sales are final.

The instructions are written in English. Photos are included, but you do need to be able to read instructions in English to complete the projects.

Sometimes I list the same pattern with a different photo for variety. The titles remain the same though.

Your pattern(s) is available for instant download once your payment is complete. You can find the download under "Your Account" (upper right corner) and then "purchases". You will also receive an email from etsy letting you know it is ready to download.

The patterns are designed to be completed in 1-3 hours and use less than one yard of fabric in most cases. The instructions are step-by-step text descriptions, along with color photos. I write detailed instructions, and have happy customers--take a look at my feedback. The patterns are optimized to save paper and ink. There are 10-20 photos so you get the point, but won't use an entire ink cartridge printing them out.

Pattern copyright info is in the Additional Information section below.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with PayPal
Payment
Payments are currently accepted through PayPal. PayPal can process all major credit cards and offers reliable customer support. Use the "Pay with credit or debit card" button at the bottom of the PayPal log in screen to pay with a card without signing up for a PayPal account. Sorry, no eChecks, money orders, cash, or bank transfers.
Shipping
PATTERNS:
All PDF patterns are delivered via INSTANT DOWNLOAD. Once your payment is processed you'll receive an email from etsy with a link to the download. You can also download your file by going to "Your Account" --> "Purchase" --> then select the invoice for the transaction.

SUPPLIES/FINISHED GOODS:
All sewing supplies ship via the United States Postal Service (USPS). Unless otherwise noted, your package will be shipped 2-3 business days after your payment is received.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:
Postage rates are for Priority mail service, which is about 6-10 business day delivery. If you'd like a quote for First Class (4-6 week delivery), let me know. It will take longer to arrive, but is more affordable with prices starting around $12 USD.

VAT, customs and other import duties/fees are not included and you may need to pay an additional amount to collect your package.
Refunds and Exchanges
PATTERNS:
All pattern sales are final, so there are no refunds or exchanges for patterns. This includes paper vintage sewing patterns.

PATTERN REPLACEMENT:
Please download, save, and stores your pattern file(s) somewhere safe (i.e. not on your computer).

Lost files can be replaced for 30-days with proof of purchase (link to your receipt, or a copy of your email receipt). I don't sell, maintain, or store these documents indefinitely so if you lose your pattern in many cases it is irreplaceable.

If you want to keep these files indefinitely--or at least longer than your next computer crash or upgrade--the best option is to have a data backup system running, or store the files online. Storing them online can be as simple as emailing them to yourself at a gmail type account, or using a service like Drop Box or Box.net. A paper copy can also be the best long-term storage.

CUT/MADE TO ORDER GOODS:
Sorry, no refunds for items cut or made to order. This includes custom made buttons, fabric, interfacing, and any other items cut as continuous lengths the buyer specifies.

HARDWARE/FINISHED GOODS
Please contact me within 2 weeks of receiving your item(s) to let me know you will be making a return.

REFUND POLICY:
• Returned items must be in original condition.
• Shipping fees are not refundable. This includes the costs to ship it back and the original shipping cost you paid when submitting your order.
• Make sure to mail it back with "Delivery Confirmation" or some kind of tracking. This is to protect you should the package go missing in the mail. A refund isn't submitted for processing until the return package is received.
• Return package needs to be post marked within 30-days of your purchase.
• Once your package arrives a refund will be submitted within 48-hours. The time it takes to actually receive the refund credit in your account can vary. Questions regarding those processing times should be directed to etsy or your bank.

LOST PACKAGES:
Shipments within the US are sent with "Delivery Confirmation". Please let me know if you have not received your package after 2 weeks. USPS online tracking information must show the package has not been delivered in order to qualify as a lost package.
