Handmade Items from Repurposed Fabrics

I hate to send anything to the landfill that is still usable. As a quilter this means I have quite a lot of fabrics bits around. Living in Manhattan I don't have a lot of spare storage space. This shop was born out my desire to make things from leftover fabrics. Most everything in the shop is made from leftovers. There are scraps from quilting projects, old clothes, orphaned fabrics given to me by friends, fabrics I bought for a project and never used.

While I am an avid stitcher, I don't have a lot of space. I own 3 sewing machines (2 vintage Singers and an inexpensive Brother) and a serger but unless I am in the midst of a project you would never see them in my apartment. I have been known to use vacation days from my day job to set up 2 machines and a cutting/ironing table and takeover the living room to bang out a project.

You may notice some of the urban backgrounds in my photos. I don't get much direct natural light in my apartment so when it comes time to shoot photos for the shop I step out onto the fire escape!

Welcome to TheGreenCat! I have been quilting for over 20 years. I don't like to waste anything so this shop is set up as a place for me to sell items I craft from fabric and other items left over from my projects. Thanks for stopping by!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
All transactions must be paid within 48 hours of purchase unless otherwise arranged. If payment is not received, I reserve the right to cancel the transaction.
Items ship USPS First Class Mail. Please note that I don't have any control over how fast the post office delivers. Lately first class packages have been taking up to a week to arrive. If you need expedited shipping, please convo me.

International customers are responsible for any duties, taxes, or fees imposed beyond the US postage originally paid. Due to the high cost of shipping overseas, I do not automatically provide tracking numbers for international purchases.

I will make my best effort to package your purchase in an environmentally friendly manner. This means I may use recycled, reused, recyclable, and/or minimal packaging. Your items will be protected to ensure they arrive safely, but I will do my best not to overpackage or include extra packaging just for looks' sake. Please note that while your package may not win an Etsy "prettiest package" award, it will make the planet smile. Please consider the environment and reuse or recycle the packaging when you receive your item.

At present I use plastic tape on my packages. If you are avoiding plastic and would prefer no tape, please indicate "no tape" in the notes to seller when you place your order.
Refunds and Exchanges
There are no refunds. Please feel free to contact me if you would like more details or photos of an item prior to your purchase. Exchanges, repairs or store credit may be arranged for damaged items. Please contact me if you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason.
Additional policies and FAQs
I will do my best to describe items in detail and provide clear photos. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or if you would like to see a photo of another view of the item.

Please note that I no longer take custom requests.

All items come from my smoke-free, pet-free home.
