I Incorporate Beauty style and comfort while offering top quality handcrafted items. I sew each item in my Studio and pay great attention to detail. Customer satisfaction is my number 1 priority, and I'm happy to accommodate your special needs.

*****Discount items: one coupon or discount per order. Coupon codes not valid on clearance items. All sales are final on clearance and any items that are altered for you.

*MY NURSING SCARVES COME IN SEVERAL SIZES, PLEASE BE SURE TO GET THE PROPER SIZE FOR YOUR SPECIFIC NEEDS-
The 20" length is a nice discrete coverage of your chest and is the same amount of fabric as my infinity scarves. If your looking for a full front coverage you will want the longer 30" size. Keep in mind that this will be a very full scarf.

Part of the charm of hand made is that no 2 items are exactly the same. I handcraft each item to order and am happy to customize for you. My measurements posted are an average length, rather then cut off an inch and throw it out I leave it on as a bonus for you. Fabrics vary by width, print and salvage so the lengths and width can vary do to this fact. If you need your items all an exact length please message me first as I can usually accomodate.

I have always put my customers first, dedicating myself to your satisfaction. Some of you know I suffer from chronic pain from severe disc problems in my back as well as Fibromyalgia. Once and a while this can slow me down a bit.

*********HOW MY SHOP WORKS************
I've Become a fabric connoisseur over the last 15 years, collecting 100s of prints and fabrics of the highest quality. This allows me to spontaneously add new items when the inspiration hits. I handpick each design I will be featuring in my products. I also hand-design specialty prints. This is why there is always such a wonderful variety of prints from which to choose.

Once the new fabric arrives, I sew my sample products and have a photo shoot outside my home. My wonderfully adged fence is the backdrop for most of my shoots. Then I edit all my photos and begin listing the new products in my shop. This is a continuous process and a lot of fun!

I make most items to order, which means that once you buy the item, I then begin the creation process. I have all my fabrics cut and organized in different stages for processing. Feel free to ask for custom items out of any fabrics you see in my shop. I'm always happy to make a special design just for you.

-PROCESSING TIME-
It typically takes 3-5 days for me to sew and package your item. The estimated processing time is for business days; weekends and holidays are not included. Being the only parent to my sweetie, I try to give her my time on the weekend. Please let me know if you need an item by a specific date before you order as I may not be able to process that fast.

Each item is carefully tagged with custom-designed cards. I include instructions on the nursing scarves and infinity scarves as well as washing care instructions. I hand tie each with a pretty ribbon as my final personal touch.

Thanks for stopping by Phatcatpatch Studio in beautiful Boulder, Colorado. Looking forward to handcrafting an item just for you.

BUY WITH CONFIDENCE-
I have over 14,000 sales and 5 star reviews, customer satisfaction is guaranteed! Each of these items were handcrafted by me- Wow!

-SHIPPING TIME-
I am shipping my orders Domestic priority mail, so once it's sewn(3-5 business days) it should take approximately 2-5 days by mail. Tracking is linked to your purchased item under you "Purchases" section. International are sent first class and leave my home 3-5 business days after purchase. It's about 2-3 weeks overseas.

About

My Bio-

I'm constantly evolving my Store.

After receiving my degree in textile design I moved to Boulder Colorado from New Jersey in 1997. I studied archeology at CU boulder and began sewing as way to express my artistic passions. In 2005 I made my side business Phatcatpatch my main focus as well as being a Single mom to my new Angel Annie. My dresses and skirts were very popular and my Business grew. Unfortunately Fibromyalgia came on hard with the birth of my Daughter. it's been a struggle for me, nocking me down at very turn. I had to adapt my life, and give up so many of things that made me happy. I couldn't Dance anymore, this was devastating to my Soul. But my daughter gave me strength I never new I had. I fight everyday for her, and her Love feeds my Soul.

*********UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE***********
Before you read on I have awesome news! I've found a way to improve my quality of life. I go to Boulders awesome rec center pool everyday. I've found a way to exercise again and am committed to it completely. I swim now everyday and have had amazing improvements in just the past 4 months! I've also been able to make some fun new clothes. So keep me in your prayers as I always keep fighting!

The pain limited how long I could sew each day and I had to stop making clothes. Luckily the feather trend had just started and I was in it from the start here in Boulder. It was a wild ride and my feather store was very popular. As the trend Faded my illness got worse and I spent about a year in a wheel chair, crippled by pain. But the fighter in me wouldn't give up and I was able to slowly get a little better with lots of physical therapy.
I began selling scarves and making scarves because I wore them all the time and everything seemed to fall into place. Chevron scarves were flying out the door. My business grew overnight. I've always put my heart into everything I do. Customer satisfaction has always been the most important leader in my business as well as being honest. I have had over 11,000 sales because of this( it still blows my mind that I hand crafted everyone of these items ) My customers know I will make that extra effort to ensure they are Happy.
My greatest flaw is working to hard. When you run your own business there is no weekend. I have to constantly remind myself to take breaks, Fibromyalgia needs to be respected. It will tear you apart if you let it. I struggle everyday with my drive to create and this illness that dictates how may days will go. I still tend to push myself to hard but have my ice packs and heating pads ready to go at any moment.
Recently I began Designing fabric again and this has lit that spark in me that my illness stole. I decided to live and work as happy as possible. By combining all my favorite things into my designs I feel my spirit rejuvenated. My heart belongs to the Grateful Dead but not being able to dance anymore was truly devastating. This was a spiritual experience for me where I connected with another plan of existence. Being able to incorporate this love into my designs has brought me back to myself.
I'm also a huge Sci-Fi fan loving Doctor who, Supernatural, Firefly, Buffy, The Superfriends from my childhood, Smallville, Torchwood, Star Trek, Bones and well you get the idea. My daughter is obsessed with My Little Ponies and they are intertwined with so many of my favorite shows it has too become part of my new collection.
Thanks for your interest in me in my business. Feel free to message me with any question or special requests.
Have a beautiful Day!
