    Will I automatically be included in the sew along when ordering this pattern ?

    I have purchased your new pattern Belinda but I can’t find it in my account to download. I checked my Paypal account and it shows paid. Is there somewhere else I should look??

    • Sarah Gido February 3, 2017 at 5:15 am #

      Hi Linda,
      Thanks so much for buying Belinda, I hope you enjoy making it. Yes, I see that the transaction is compete and ready for you but I am not sure why it isn’t in your account. Were you sent the download links? Is so, maybe in your spam folder? Let me see what else I can see from my end and if worse comes to worse, I can always email the file to you. Sarah

    • Sarah Gido February 3, 2017 at 5:24 am #

      Linda, I reissued the download links and you should be sent another email to the msn email. Please let me know if you get this copy and if they contain the links. In terms of you account here on my website, is it possible you have more than one. This happened the other day when someone couldn’t find their pattern – she had set up two accounts on Etsy and had bought with one and was looking in another. Just a thought. Let me know if you get the new email. sarah

    How do I sign up to receive all your patterns?

    • Sarah Gido May 2, 2017 at 12:04 pm #

      Hi Audrey!
      Are you asking about a subscription? If so, I don’t have anything in place like that right now but, if you like, I would be very happy to add you to my email database and will send you newsletters when a new design comes out. Let me know if I can do anything else for you. sarah

    I just placed an order for cosmetic bag kit and I wanted the pattern but nowhere did the option to buy it appear. I need the pattern and want the discount for it. Can you help with this????
    Thank you.

    • Sarah Gido June 17, 2017 at 4:04 pm #

      Hi Barbara,
      Thanks for ordering the kit! The pattern can be purchased here:
      Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you. I will get your kit mailed out on Monday. I hope you have fun making it! sarah

    Hi! I\’m looking at the color options for the Market Tote, and 2 of the colors I am interested in (Otter Brown and Pumpkin) are not listed in the dropdown of colors. Does this mean they are discontinued? I love the Beautiful Beige/Otter Brown/Pumpkin combo. Thanks

    • Sarah Gido August 9, 2017 at 3:05 pm #

      Hi Carmen, yes, unfortunately, Otter Brown and Beautiful Beige are sold out and I can’t reorder them. In this I really am at the mercy of the automotive industry and take whatever they produce and don’t use – so colors come and go! I don’t have anything very comparable to Pumpkin. However, if you are interested in an autumn sort of palate, Spice is just beautiful and would go great with Beautiful Beige and Chocolate. If you would like me to snap a picture of these together or would like samples, let me know. sarah

    Where can I purchase bag hardware for making more bags?

    • Sarah Gido August 20, 2017 at 8:37 am #

      Hi Kim, thanks for contacting me.

      You can buy the 2″ rings for the seat belt market totes here:

      I am working on listing tassel hardware as well but it will be another day or so.

      Is there another type of hardware you are looking for?
      Thanks, sarah

    I am interested in purchasing the Motherload Bag pattern, but can\’t find finished dimensions anywhere. I can guess the w and d from the plastic canvas piece, so how tall is it? Lot if good features on that bag! Thanks

    • Sarah Gido September 11, 2017 at 2:28 pm #

      Hi Jan,
      The finished size is 21w x 13h x 5 1/2 d. thanks for letting me know that information is missing, I will add that to the listing! Let me know if there is anything else I can do for you. Sarah

    I would like the supplies for the Market Bag in medium. My daughter would like the colors of grey and hot pink, as stripes and black for the bottom.. How do I know how much to buy o f these colors?
    Are there other items that I also need to buy to make it like the seat belt kit of the month?
    thank you,

    • Sarah Gido September 13, 2017 at 7:17 pm #

      Hi Mavis,
      Thanks for contacting me. By your description of how she wants the bag to look it sounds like you could order the kit here:
      This would be the easiest way because it comes with the 2″ ring but it would also mean that the handles and flap would also need to be in black.

      If you wanted to buy everything separate so that you could customize each element as you wish, then you should refer to the supply list at the bottom of the pattern listing here: to see how much of each color you would need for each element.
      Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you. Sarah
