About

The Fabric Closet at Mommie's Lil Peanut™

I opened a small retail business in 2007, while staying home with my new baby girl. I have been sewing for most of my life and in early 2008, I developed a cloth-diaper-friendly backpack diaper bag. My business shifted away from retail as I began crafting new bags and more handmade items. I LOVE fabric and anything crafty! In 2014 I began to sell off some of my enormous fabric stash. I found that I loved sharing craft supplies with others about as much as I did collecting and crafting myself. My "Fabric Closet" opened up, and I am excited to share the wonderful world of fabric with everyone!

Returns and exchange details
RETURNED items must be in unused, unwashed, uncut, clean, resale condition (and in original packaging if applicable) to be eligible for a full refund of the item purchase price.

EXCHANGES will be dealt with as returns. You are welcome to place a new order for the alternate item(s) at any time to avoid shipping delay while your return is processing.

Return postage is at buyer's expense, unless the return is due to an order error. I recommend shipping via a trackable method with insurance, as I cannot process a refund for product not received.

Items returned without authorization will receive STORE CREDIT ONLY.

*Custom cut fabric lengths* or *Special Orders* are NOT eligible for return unless there is an error with your order.

Refunds will be processed within 5-7 business days of receipt of return, for original product cost only.

>>ERRORS<<
If there is a mistake with your order when it arrives to you, due to my error- please contact me within 5 business days of receipt. I will exchange it at my expense or refund you at my discretion, based on item availability.

*Due to the nature of the fabric printing process, there is a possibility of minor flaws, smudges, and tiny dots of white or incorrect color. Stretch fabrics (such as knits) may experience a slight curve to the print line. While I do make every attempt to provide you with flaw free material, these small imperfections will not be compensated for. Please bring large flaws/issues to my attention for exchange or partial refund.

>>LOST/DAMAGED PACKAGE<<
LOST: I will help to locate it through USPS or ensure you receive a replacement or refund. Orders showing a delivery scan will not be replaced at my expense.
Customs delays on international shipments are not unusual and outside my control and may not immediately be considered a lost package by USPS- I will not compensate for such delay or reship a package until deemed lost by USPS, which is no less than 30 days from shipment. International packages can take upwards of 4 weeks or more to arrive.

DAMAGED: Please keep the item AND the packaging. I will ask for photos and may ask you to bring it to your local post office to assist with an insurance claim or report to USPS. I will reship your order, if possible, at my expense, or refund your payment in full within 5-7 business days.

Payment is due at time of purchase.
Illinois Sales Tax will apply to all in-state orders during checkout.

All IN STOCK orders ship within 3 business days, Monday- Friday (unless stated otherwise and excluding all US Federal Holidays).

>>SHIPPING UPGRADES<<
Shipping upgrades from First Class Mail to Priority Mail are offered in the cart.

Frequently asked questions
Do you charge sales tax?

Yes, Sales Tax is charged on orders shipping to an Illinois, USA address at the current Illinois Department of Revenue rate of 8.75%. This rate is subject to change at any time and without advance notice from me.

Should I prewash my new fabric?

My personal rule of thumb is YES, wash every fabric you receive before cutting. This is especially important for any project you wish to wash later. Pre-washing does a number of important things.
Pre-shrinkage is the biggest for me. Nearly all fabrics are going to shrink by some degree when washed. If you don't get the first major shrinkage out of the way before cutting and sewing, you run the risk of awkward and uneven shrinking of the individual pieces once they are sewn to your final product.
Pre-washing also helps remove the "sizing" (additive to give new fabric that crisp feel) and any other chemicals left from the manufacturing process, as well as any dirt or grime collected while in the factory & warehouses before they reach you.

When will my order ship?

I strive to get your package on it's way to you as quickly as possible. My normal turnaround time for most In-Stock items is within 3 business days, Monday-Friday. I do not ship on Saturday or Sunday, so please consider this in your schedule. There are times when new collections have just arrived or my workload requires a stretch of my processing time. I do my best to provide accurate details for you in the Shipping section or directly at the top of listings.
I also offer PreOrder items which are NOT available for immediate shipping. I cannot guarantee an exact shipping date on these items, as I must rely on the manufacturer's schedule of release- any preorder dates given are estimates only.

What is a PreOrder?

PreOrder items in my shop are items that I do not yet have in hand. I often offer new fabric collections prior to manufacturer release to allow my customers to be the first to receive these new fabrics upon arrival to me.
PreOrders are NOT recommended for time-sensitive projects. I cannot guarantee a receipt or shipping date. All dates provided are estimates ONLY, until the fabric is in hand.
Please do not offer these items to your own customers before they're listed in-stock in my shop, as I do not process order cancellations due to manufacturer delays. Once ordered, your requested yardage is set aside specifically for you, and your order will be processed promptly upon receipt to me. If you have additional questions, please ask!

Something is wrong with my order, what do I do?

If upon receipt, you find a significant issue* with your item(s) or you received an incorrect item in your shipment, please contact me immediately. At my discretion, and based on availability of your originally order item, I will exchange the product at my expense or offer a refund.
*Due to the nature of the fabric printing process, there is a possibility of minor flaws, smudges, and tiny dots of white or incorrect color. Stretch fabrics (such as knits) may experience a slight curve to the print line. While I do make every attempt to provide you with flaw free material, these small imperfections will not be compensated for. Please bring large flaws/issues to my attention for exchange/refund.

Wholesale availability

As a small business retailer, I do not generally deal in wholesale orders. However, if you are interested in a bulk purchase (i.e. full bolts/rolls of fabric), please contact me. I'm more than happy to try to fulfill your needs and special order something if available from the supplier.

**Please understand when browsing, that my store fabric offering spans numerous years of fabric collections and may no longer be available for me to repurchase in bulk.

Do you have a shop I can visit?

I'm sorry, at this time, my business is online only. I do not have a storefront to accept client visits. For insurance reasons and due to Village regulations, I cannot invite customers to my home office for browsing or order pickups.
*If you are local to the Shorewood, Illinois area and are interested in saving shipping costs, I am always happy to meet with you at a public location to provide you with your ordered item(s). Please contact me BEFORE ordering to make such arrangements. My local police department provides a Safe Haven exchange setting in their building to provide safety to both parties when meeting a stranger to complete transactions.

Do you offer discounts?

Occasionally throughout the year, I do put items on sale or offer coupon codes. I do not maintain any continuously offered discounts.

Most of my fabric and sewing supply items are already priced below standard retail and I cannot entertain requests for further discount - unless requesting an item in bulk. Bulk orders are considered full bolts or rolls of fabric, or full packages/sets of items as offered on a wholesale basis.
(Many small/average cuts of fabric across multiple different items are not considered bulk for discount purposes.)
