I offer gift certificates in any dollar amount. Alternately, you can specify the item and let the recipient choose the fabric when the certificate is redeemed. With this option, the person doesn't necessarily have to know how much money you spent on them!
Gift certificates will be emailed you to in PDF format and include the recipient's name and a unique certificate number.
How do I choose my fabric?
There are several different options:
- Reference a fabric I have used in the past. I will do my best to track it down again but may ask you to provide a second choice. To quickly browse fabrics, check out my Mom-Made Facebook albums.
- Describe what colors and style you are wanting, and leave the fabric choosing up to me. In the past I have even emailed fabric pictures from my cell phone to customers while shopping if I am torn between two particular prints!
- Purchase your own fabric. Which leads me to...
Can I purchase my own fabric?
Yes, I am open to customers purchasing their own fabric and dropping it off to me. Based on your project, I will let you know ahead of time how much fabric to purchase (generally 1 yard or less) and what weight you should look for. I will deduct a fabric allowance from your order total, which varies per project.
How do I care for my new bag?
All items have been pre-washed and come from a smoke-free and pet-free home.
TOTE BAG & PURSE CARE INSTRUCTIONS
To extend the life of your bag, I don’t recommend machine washing on a regular basis. Spot clean with mild soap and water when necessary.
If you must machine wash, use the delicate cycle on cold, and hang to dry. A warm iron may be used.
Optionally, you can use Scotch Guard to protect your bag from stains and spills. In a well ventilated area, lightly spray the bag exterior and straps. Allow to dry for 12 hours before using. Repeat again once per year or after machine washing.
SNACK BAG CARE INSTRUCTIONS
If you are putting dry snacks in your bags, you can simply pull out the nylon lining, wipe clean, and allow to air dry. For messier snacks, the bags can be machine washed and hung up to dry. Make sure the lining is inside the bag and the Velcro is closed before doing so.
For care instructions of other items I've made, just ask!
Do you ship?
Of course! Shipping starts at $5.00 for USPS priority mail. If you order through my website, PayPal will automatically calculate shipping costs. Otherwise if you email me about an order, I will provide a shipping quote to you.
International customers, please contact me for a shipping quote before ordering.
I offer a free local pick-up option to customers in the central Illinois area.
What payment methods do you accept?
I accept PayPal, cash, checks, money orders, and major credit cards (in person) including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.
When do I need to pay for my order?
You do NOT have to pay when you place a custom order. After I receive your order, I will send you an invoice with your order total (including applicable taxes and shipping). Payment is due upon shipment/pick up of your order.
My car caddy numbers are starting to come loose on the edges. What can I do?
To reseal the numbers on the pockets of your car caddy, lay a lightweight cotton cloth over them and heat with an iron set to medium heat for 25 seconds. Flip the caddy over and iron again for 25 seconds.
