FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

When will I receive my pattern?

All the sewing patterns in my shop are digital, which means you’ll receive a link to download the pattern, shortly after purchase.

You will not receive a physical product in the mail.

You can also download the patterns you purchased directly from your account in the shop.

If you did not create an account when you ordered, you still can do that here; you will then be able to access any previously purchased patterns.

****Make sure the email you entered on the order/account is the email you check for your digital order link! (If you cannot find the email, Check your spam folder or junk mail.) Contact me if you need to. 

How do I use a digital pattern?

PDF patterns are digital files with pattern pieces and sewing instructions, which you open and print from your computer. The pages print to standard paper size, which you will piece together with tape if the pattern is too big for the page.

You will then simply cut out the size(s) you need! (All of our pattern files include detailed instructions for this).

**WATCH a step-by-step video for printing/piecing PDF patterns here on my channel.

If you don’t have a personal printer, you can email the file to a print shop or public library and have the pages printed. But please refer to our copyright info below.

I recommend:
• Printing from a COMPUTER rather than a mobile device. This will give you the best printing accuracy.
• Viewing your pattern via Adobe Reader is free and generally offers the most reliable results.

You can get it here. Be sure to print at 100% (or Do Not Scale).

What is your refund policy?

Due to the nature of digital items, we cannot offer refunds. Please send me a note for other items, and we can discuss your concerns.

Can I sell items I make from your patterns?

By purchasing a pattern in my shop, you can make items from the pattern and sell them in your small-scale shop, such as an Etsy shop, or for a local fundraising event. No production license is needed. However, no mass production, please. If you ever pay someone to manufacture items for you, you must create your own original pattern.

Can I share this pattern with others? What is your Copyright Policy?

Unfortunately, the pattern cannot be shared with others. If your friend wants to sew with one of our patterns (which I hope they do!), they must purchase their own pattern. We value this level of honesty in the pattern business and hope you do, too.

What if I’m teaching a sewing class based on your pattern? Do I need to buy a pattern for each student?

If you’re teaching a class based on my pattern, that’s awesome! I love it. Yes, a separate pattern will need to be purchased for each student in the class. If you email me, I can give you a discount coupon code for your students.
