Shipping & Returns

Hello! We ship Monday - Friday and most Saturdays. On US Federal Holidays no mail moves - you *may* see a label print, but it will leave the next mailing day. If we take a short break for vacation, it is announced ahead of time on all social media channels and in the newsletter. Are you signed up for my emails? They often contain treasures!  

We strive to ship within 48 to 72 business hrs if everything is IN STOCK. Super intense, cut-heavy orders can sometimes take 3-5 days.

Please keep shipping insurance (Package Protection) in your cart. If you take it out, you will have to file your own claim with USPS or UPS. While mistakes with the Carriers are rare, they do happen and it's best to have full coverage.

PRE ORDERS ship as stated in the listing -- usually these take some time to arrive. IF YOU COMBINE in stock items with a preorder they will ship TOGETHER at one time. Make a separate order if you need in-stock items sooner. Thanks!!

We ship USPS First class mail and Priority Mail always, never ground. We ship UPS if you choose UPS, OR if it's more economical and faster than USPS.

We DO ship to Canada &most other European countries, also Australia and New Zealand through USPS or UPS if you choose it. We do NOT cover import fees. It is worth an email if you're concerned about the cost, before placing your order. I will weigh and estimate cost before processing.

Local pick up is an option! Our store is located at 4860 Larson Beach Rd in McFarland, WI. We are open Wednesdays and Saturdays 12-4.

Tracking info is ALWAYS sent by email as soon as the label is printed. Check your junk or promotions folders; it could have landed in one of them. After the initial tracking entry when the label is printed, additional tracking updates are provided by the carrier. Follow the tracking link you received by email to check the status on the carrier's site.


Our mail system is pretty amazing when compared to the rest of the world and we are so grateful to the Carriers that make it happen! 

Vinyl is usually rolled and either wrapped in tissue or a protective bag, and sent that way. Some vinyl (soft metallic and moonglow for example) can be folded without causing damage, you can opt to iron it from the back side as well.  In any case, if your vinyl arrives with wrinkles you can simply place it in the sunshine OR use a hair dryer to warm it flat again, or iron it (wrong side only). If you think your vinyl is damaged, please email me and I will take care of you. 😊

**Soft metallic vinyl, Stardust, croc, and Moonglow vinyl CAN be ironed from the wrong side. See my Guide for Sewing Vinyl for more info.

If I made a mistake on your order OR if something arrives damaged, email me so I can fix it. The Sew Hungryhippie team strives for perfect but we are humans & are training new employees... Thank you for your grace.

Returns are accepted for damaged items and we will send you a return label. Returns for "changing your mind" are accepted at YOUR return shipping expense, and will be processed with a restocking fee of 10%

Thank you for supporting my small business! YOU have made a huge difference in my family's life and I think about it every single day.

Product Details

Pattern Type: PDF
Stock #: reczipsant

Product Description

This is a video tutorial with a PDF download including a cutting chart and 12 written steps with video timestamps to make a recessed zipper closure for the Santorini Tote.

In the original pattern, the zipper sits at the top for easy access. You will still need the original pattern to make this bag. This PDF add-on is a style hack with a modified construction.

This listing is for the PDF printout for the recessed zipper option for the Santorini tote pattern. You'll still need the SANTORINI TOTE pattern for the bag-making portion, this is only the recessed zipper instruction, an add-on hack to the pattern.

Note the zipper length changes for this version! Video walk-through hyperlink and QR code are included in the PDF.

The original Santorini Pattern is here.

**Note the straps are added in the same manner as the original pattern OR you can rivet them on at the very end like I did. It is YOUR choice, depending on what look you like best. When you rivet them on at the end, it helps the zipper portion sit down inside the bag a little better. :)

Any questions/ need help? Email

My first purse pattern ever

I liked the look of this Santani bags and decided on this to be my first purse pattern. I am so glad too. I'm very proud of my purse sized bag with a recessed zipper. It's not perfect, but I love my finished purse.
Thanks for the easy pattern with 3 sizes. As well as the tutorial, that leads you step by step, to the finished bag. Natalie you are an awesome teacher.
