Frequently Asked Questions

Custom and personalized orders

Personalised and customised items are non refundable. For custom items where fabrics have been obtained especially for your order, a pattern has been upscaled or downscaled to a custom size, a pattern has been modified or a bag has been created to your personal specification or personalised with a name cannot be returned for a refund as these are one of a kind products made just for you! Please ensure that you are completely happy with a custom bag description before you make payment.

Care instructions

For bags in both cotton and laminated cotton, it is advised that you do not immerse your Sew Sofia bag in water!! It may have layers of fleece, interfacing and lining that could displace in the wash. Metal hardware could become scratched too. Spot clean any stains with a mild soap solution and press on a low iron setting (place a clean tea towel or cloth on bag before ironing) to touch up any creases. Do not iron over zips, velcro or labels as they could melt. Consider using a fabric protector spray to repel any dirt – although test a small area before using.

Do you offer other wipe clean fabrics?

I only work with high quality laminated cotton (also known as slicker) from well known, mainly US fabric manufacturers. I keep a small selection of prints in stock which you can view at the following link. I can also source a few other wipe clean prints locally in (within the UK).

Do you offer other cotton fabrics?

I keep a very small selection of cotton prints in stock at one time but will consider ordering in locally (within the UK) for custom bags. If you would like some help with choosing a fabric, drop me a message with your preferred colours/style and we can take it from there.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I wrap my products in brown paper, tissue paper or bubble wrap depending on the item and use strong polythene mailing bags to ensure the parcel is waterproof. Larger bags will be packaged in a sturdy box. If you wish to send an item directly to someone as a gift, let me know and I will wrap it in pretty tissue paper and be sure not to include an invoice or price details with their parcel.
