Shipping & Returns

Hello! We ship everday and some 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!  

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. 

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.
Free shipping is offered for domestic customers, on orders over $125.

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 we made a mistake on your order OR if something arrives damaged, email us so we 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

his 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.

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. Riveting them on at the end helps the zipper portion sit down inside the bag a little better. :)

“Trust the process”

This pattern is written perfectly and all you have to do is read it and do what it says, as Natalie tells us, “trust the process”. I have made 2 Santorini totes, both the m with this recessed zipper, turns out beautifully!!

Recessed zipper

Great instructions for adding a recessed zipper to the original Santorni bag.

So cool!

Have watched so many times and now have made a start. Realise I have cut the zip a smidge too short so will redo it with a new one.
All part of the learning curve….still enjoying the process,Thank you Natalie
