All of the handcrafted items you see are made one at a time, by me, in my smoke free and pet free studio with attention to quality and detail. I purchase and use only high quality fabrics to make the items you see in my shop.
I'm currently adding new prints each week, so be sure to come back often to see what is new in stock!
Descriptions of the fabrics that I carry:
Quilting Weight Cotton: Quilting Weight cotton can be used for a variety of projects and is not limited to quilting. Besides quilting, customers have used quilting weight cotton to create clothing, curtains, pillow covers, ipod and other electronic device covers, purses, totes, bags, etc. Some of these applications may require the addition of an interfacing or fusible fleece to make the fabric thicker and to give some padding. Quilting weight cotton is machine washable and can be put in the dryer.
Home Dec: The home dec fabric that I typically carry is a cotton fabric that is heavier than a quality quilter's cotton, but not as heavy as upholstery fabric. Also, unlike most home decorator fabrics, this fabric can be washed and dried. My customers have used this fabric for upholstery, making curtains, pillow covers, purses/totes/bags, clothing, quilts, and more. Machine wash warm normal cycle with like colors. Use only non-chlorine bleach. Tumble dry low. Remove promptly. Use warm iron if necessary.
Laminated Cotton Fabric: These fabrics are purchased from manufacturers such as Free Spirit/Westminster Fibers, Riley Blake, Michael Miller, Timeless Treasure and more. They are made from quilting weight cotton which is laminated on the print side which typically makes this side shiny, but not always. At the base of these fabrics is a regular quilting cotton weight cloth. The right side of the fabric is laminated with a polyurethane, the coating does not contain Phthalates and they are not made with vinyl or PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and so these fabrics are CPSIA compliant. These fabrics are meant to be wiped clean with mild soap and water. Do not wash or put in the dryer. They can be ironed, but iron from the underside of the fabric (the side that is not laminated) with a low setting.
PUL: PUL is a polyurethane laminated fabric that is waterproof yet breathable. Because of its leak proof properties, it is perfect when sewing for babies and toddlers. PUL has a fabric side and a laminated side. Either side is suitable as the “right” side; it just depends on the project. One caution: You can steam press PUL on the fabric side but do not use an iron on the laminate side of PUL as it will damage the fabric.
OILCLOTH: The current textiles we see referred to as ‘oilcloth’ are actually PVC-coated woven cotton fabric. These fabrics are NOT CPSIA compliant. Although today's oilcoth contains no lead in the oilcloth, the levels of Phthalates are too high to comply with the new standards for items which are going to be sold and are intended to be used by children under 12 years old. Oilcloth can be used to make tablecloths and splat mats because these are considered house-hold items. Do not use oilcloth to make bibs or children's clothing as those products would not be CPSIA compliant.
Each listing recommends the recommended pillow form/insert size and does NOT reflect the final size of the covers.

Please review your ETSY receipt after purchase and if you see an error in your shipping address, please notify me immediately via ETSY's convo system (not e-mail due to spam folders) of the error and provide the correct shipping address.
Please note: I reserve the right to adjust shipping cost as needed based on USPS prices. Please remember, fabric prices are not priced to include the extra expense of packaging material, labels, and time/gas to deliver your packages to the post office. These expenses are reflected in the shipping price.
USPS first class and priority shipments include tracking and delivery confirmation.

USPS first class shipments are not insured and are at the buyers risk unless the buyer purchases insurance.
USPS priority shipments-if the value of your purchase (not including shipping) exceeds the above amounts and you wish to protect the full value of your items, you will need to purchase insurance.

BUYER ASSUMES RISK FOR LOSS AND DAMAGE DURING SHIPMENT FOR ALL UNINSURED PURCHASES. I can only be responsible for your order up to the point that I hand your package over to the post office. Once it is in the hands of the USPS, I cannot control how quickly you receive your package, damage from handling/ processing, lost packages.
If you purchase insurance, please realize that only the value of the items can be insured. I do not refund shipping charges in the event of loss or damage as these costs are not insurable. In the unfortunate event of loss or damage, the amount of the refund will be limited to the amount of available insurance.

I ship via USPS mail. Insurance is not included in the price. You will need to purchase insurance if you wish to protect your shipment. Otherwise, shipments are at your own risk. I am not responsible for your package once I deliver your package to the post office. I am not liable in any way for lost/stolen/confiscated packages. If you wish to protect your purchase, you must purchase insurance, otherwise you bear the full risk of international shipments. I DO NOT REFUND FOR UNINSURED PACKAGES. Shipping rates are not refundable under any circumstances as these fees cannot be insured.

Shipments are via USPS FIRST CLASS OR PRIORITY FLAT-RATE MAIL only. There is no estimated delivery times for USPS first class mail. USPS priority mail has an estimated delivery of 6-10 business days, not including weekends and holidays. This delivery time is an estimate, not a guarantee as delivery times depend on how quickly packages clear your country's customs. USPS priority shipments cannot be tracked outside the US.
When I ship I provide bar code numbers so that you can verify that your order has shipped. However, please realize that packages shipped without tracking CANNOT be tracked outside of the US. Neither the USPS nor I can provide any more information about these packages then what you can see on the USPS.com.

In the very rare event that your package is lost, stolen, undeliverable as addressed, or confiscated by customs, I cannot be held responsible once the fabric is shipped. Non-delivered packages cannot be reshipped or refunded. Please remember that USPS priority flat-rate shipments CANNOT be treacked outside the US. You will have received an e-mail with your customs barcode number when your order shipped. To check on the status of your package within the US you can enter the barcode into the USPS.com website. Once the package leaves the US, you will need to contact your local customs or post office for updated information. To protect against loss, you must purchase insurance. I encourage you to call your local Post Office and/or Customs Office in the event of non-delivery.

This includes, but is not limited to, any applicable government taxes, duties, custom fees and/or broker fees or any other fees that may be levied by your country.

MARKING A PACKAGE AS A GIFT OR REQUEST TO FALSIFY CUSTOMS DECLARATION
Please do not ask me to mark international items as a gift or to decrease the value of the items purchased for customs declaration. This is a federal offense in the U.S. which comes with fines and potential jail time. I can also not falsify values of contents. Customs does require the quantity and value of the items to appear on the customs form. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
Most items will be shipped within 48 hours of receipt of cleared payment. I do not ship on holidays or weekends.
Returns and exchanges
No returns on patterns due to copyright issues. If you have received the incorrect item, please send me a convo so that the mistake can be corrected.
If you provide an incorrect address and your package is returned, you are responsible for paying for shipping fees to resend your package. If you opt not to due so, refund issued will be for purchase amount (not including shipping as shipping fees are not refundable) minus any fees I have incurred/paid on the sale of your item (e.g. Etsy listing fees and selling fees).
NO CANCELLATION REQUESTS OR CHANGE REQUESTS WILL BE HONORED.
ORDERS PAID SEPARATELY WILL NO LONGER BE COMBINED. THEY WILL SHIP INDIVIDUALLY AS ORDERED.
Pleaee Note: I list a lot of fabric and at times there may be a data entry error in the price or quantity available. For incorrect pricing I reserve the right to cancel a sale and issue a refund. If thete is a bolt shortage, the buyer will be notified with options and an appropriate refund will be issued based on the option chosen by the buyer.
DAMAGED ITEMS (INSURED): While I do my best to package your items so that they arrive safely, there are times when an item(s) may be damaged sometime during the delivery process. Please save ALL packaging materials (yes the box, bubble wrap, and/or all peanuts etc.) and the damaged item. You will have to take all packaging materials and the damaged item to the post office (or notify other carrier in the case of larger/bulky items) in order for them to process your claim and issue you the refund. This is not something I can do from my end. If you dispose of the packaging materials or damaged item, carriers will not honor the insurance for the items in question. In no event are shipping charges refunded.
I do not issue refunds for lost/damaged items that are not insured or for insured damaged items where claims are denied by the carrier.
SWATCHES: I can't accept returns or exchanges. I no longer offer free swatches. If you would like to purchase a smaller cut before purchasing a larger quantity of fabric, the smallest cut I now offer is a fat quarter cut (approximately 18"x21"). Please note that I cannot guarantee the availability of fabric once your fat quarter is mailed.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please remember-When you buy items online, actual colors may differ from those you see on your monitor due to differences in computers/monitors/photography and differences between different manufacturer's stock photos!! When I take pictures of fabric, I use an OTT LITE or natural sunlight and I do not enhance/alter my photos...so the differences you see may also be do to your own lighting! All manufacturers also make the statement that actual colors may differ due to differences in computers. Please take this into account when buying fabric online.
Frequently asked questions
Can the fabric you sell be used to make children's sleepwear to sell commerically?
ALL children's sleepwear sold in the US has to be chemically treated to be flame resistant OR be tight fitting. Most retail quilting and apparel fabrics sold online and in stores are not suitable for making children's sleepwear. If you are buying fabric to make children's sleepwear to sell commercially, please be aware that most fabrics do not pass the standard for flammability and can't be used in the commercial production of children's sleepwear. If in doubt, please ask the seller.
If a fabric that I carry CAN be used for commercial production of sleepwear, I will note it in the description. Otherwise, the fabrics I carry are not suitable for this purpose.
