Just one of these beautiful advents left now. Plain or personalised, it will make a very special family keepsake.
All my lunch bags are wipe clean inside and out, with a layer of insulated wadding to keep food at an even temperature.

Beautifully handmade bags and other items in stunning fabrics

I started Sew Sofia back in September 2011 when I rediscovered my passion for fabrics and sewing. Inspired by my daughter Sofia to create something new every day, I soon realised how rewarding it was to take a piece of stunning fabric and turn it into something useful and beautiful. I love making bags and am constantly challenging myself to try out new patterns and bag techniques to create the ultimate bag or what I like to call a 'headturner'!!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Personalised and customised items are non refundable. For custom items where fabrics have been obtained especially for your order, a pattern has been upscaled or downscaled to a custom size, a pattern has been modified or a bag has been created to your personal specification or personalised with a name cannot be returned for a refund as these are one of a kind products made just for you! Please ensure that you are completely happy with a custom bag description before you make payment.

Care instructions

My bags are handcrafted with the greatest care using high quality materials, interfacings and metal hardware. Never overload your bag with heavy items as this will cause wear and tear, spoil the shape of the bag and put a strain on the strap. Do not immerse my bags in water, or a washing machine! The layers of special interlining, interfacing and lining could displace or shrink in the wash and any metal hardware will become damaged. For fabric bags only: spot clean with a mild soap solution. Touch up any creases with an iron on a low setting. For bags with faux leather or laminated (wipe clean) fabric:Spot clean with a mild soap solution. Wipe clean gently with a soft damp cloth. Do not iron!

Do you offer other wipe clean fabrics?

I only work with high quality laminated cotton (also known as slicker) from well known, mainly US fabric manufacturers. I keep a small selection of prints in stock which you can view at the following link. I can also source a few other wipe clean prints locally in (within the UK). https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.366530856715299.73176.243387722362947&type=3

Do you offer other cotton fabrics?

I keep a very small selection of cotton prints in stock at one time but will consider ordering in locally (within the UK) for custom bags. If you would like some help with choosing a fabric, drop me a message with your preferred colours/style and we can take it from there. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.306389109396141.62988.243387722362947&type=3

Gift wrapping and packaging

I wrap my products in brown paper, tissue paper or bubble wrap depending on the item and use strong polythene mailing bags to ensure the parcel is waterproof. Larger bags will be packaged in a sturdy box. If you wish to send an item directly to someone as a gift, let me know and I will wrap it in pretty tissue paper and be sure not to include an invoice or price details with their parcel.

Lost or unclaimed parcels

Sew Sofia is not responsible for customs duty or brokerage fees on international orders. These will have to be paid by the customer where applicable.

If an item is returned to me by the Royal Mail as unclaimed I will contact you to arrange for the item to be redelivered as soon as possible. Please respect that if such a situation occurs there will be an extra charge for postage to cover the cost of resending the item for you.

Sew Sofia cannot be held responsible for items lost once they have been handed to the Royal Mail for delivery both in the UK and when being posted to overseas locations. I will always obtain a certificate of postage to trace delivery of goods.
