Frequently Asked Questions


Care Instructions for Bags, Wallets, & Accessories

All my bags, wallets, and accessories are spot-clean only. They are made from various materials inside and out, including faux leather, real leather, and cotton. They are made to be durable, with high-quality hardware and reinforced stitching. Expect ordinary wear and tear.

Pillow Inserts

My pillow covers are sold either with or without a pillow insert. I indicate the size insert I use for my photos within each listing. I offer down/feather inserts, but can replace with a high-quality down-alternative insert (this increases the lead time).

Pillow Care Instructions

Pillows covers are spot-clean only. The pillow inserts I sell are machine-washable (the attached tag has detailed instructions).

Custom & Personalized Orders

Sorry, I am not taking any custom orders at this time.

Payment & Shipping

I accept PayPal for payment on my site, and you do not need to have a PayPal account. I currently only ship smaller items, and only within the United States. I use UPS. Contact me if you have other shipping preferences.

Do You Really Only Use Vintage Sewing Machines?

Yes! I sew exclusively on vintage sewing machines. I love everything about them — the simplicity, the sound of sewing, the ease of maintenance. In fact, I stopped using my modern machine once I got my first vintage machine in 2017. One of the best parts is that I can handle all my own repairs and tune-ups. See My Vintage Sewing Machines for more details.

Apron Sizing & Care Instructions

One size fits most. The two dress form sizes I use in the photos are 36-28-39 and 40-32-44 (inches). Refer to the last photo of each listing for approximate dimensions.

I prewash all the fabric in warm water and machine dry on low or medium heat. I also wash and dry the completed apron before shipping. No ironing should be needed, but the apron can be ironed on the cotton setting with or without steam. Unless they are waxed canvas, my apron fabrics are either 100% cotton or a cotton/linen blend and are washable.

Waxed canvas aprons are spot-clean only. If you want to reduce the weathered look, heat the apron gently with a hairdryer.
