Textile Goods For All Generations

Thank you for spending some time in my shop! I love to repurpose vintage fabrics and make functional keepsakes for today's families. I also enjoy finding great retro and modern supplies for other makers.
All of my handmade goods are thoroughly washed in hypoallergenic fragrance free detergent. I source my sheets very carefully because I want the things I make for you to last and be enjoyed.

    I've been sewing and quilting for a decade. I love the thrill of finding the perfect vintage and modern fabrics to work with. I'm also a firm believer that every baby deserves something handmade. Thank you for checking out my shop!

Frequently asked questions
Environmentally Friendly? 

Yes! I use the terms reclaimed or upcycled to describe most of the fabrics that I work with. They are seconhand fabrics that I find at estate sales, thrift shops and online auctions. By purchasing second hand fabrics I am keeping them out of landfills and giving them new life. Using vintage fabrics also means there is less demand for new fabrics to be manufactured. You will also find vintage supplies like sewing notions, craft kits and fabric in my shop, further reducing waste by rehoming the fine goods.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Are the vintage fabrics you work with clean? 

Yes! I take great pride in making sure the vintage fabrics I work with are as like new as possible. My preperation procsss frequentlly includes soaking them for up to two days with a product called Retro Clean. It gently strips them of any fragrance or fabric softener that might have buit up on them over the years. After that they get washed in a hot water cycle with fragrance free hypoallergenic detergent, and then an extra hot water rinse. 

Where can I find your work? 

In addition to this website, www.PettijohnTextiles.com, my work can be found here at Etsy, and at craft shows in the Memphis area.

What kind of sewing machine do you use?

Okay, I love this question. I sew on a vintage Singer Slant- O-Matic 401a sewing machine. It was made in 1957, and was gifted to me by my husbands Grandma. I love being able to work with this piece of history.

Care and Cleaning

Blankets, pillows, quilts and burp cloths can all be machine washed in warm water with a mild detergent and then tumble dried. Snuggle often. 

Zipper pouches and bags should be spot cleaned.
