Where do you get your fabric?

Well, specific details are a secret that I keep to myself. If I told everyone where I shop, there wouldn’t be any left for me to make awesome bags for you! 😉

I will say that with some of my geek prints, I work with a graphic designer to create one of a kind prints that are only available at SbJL. I also have branched out and created a few prints on my own (for example, the Tolkien prints are my own layout)

Otherwise, I spend entirely too much time shopping for fabric, looking for new prints to add to the shop. 😉

How often do you update your shop?

When the shop is open, I do small updates almost daily. I do large shop updates with the SciFi prints about every 2 weeks.

If you want a heads up on larger shop updates, please sign up for the mailing list (link in sidebar), ‘like’ my page on Facebook and/or follow me on Twitter! You can also follow me on Instagram if you’d like to see my other crafty pursuits and some fabric sneak peeks. :o)

Can I wash my SbJL bag?

Yes, you sure can wash your SbJL bag! I prewash, tumble dry and iron every piece of fabric that comes in to SbJL so it has been preshrunk prior to making a bag out of it and sending it out to you so there is no fear of weird and wonky shrinkage when it’s time for it to have a bath.

To wash your bag, please remove the zipper pull (if you can’t get it to come off, that’s okay, but it might beat up the crystals a bit), then wash it on the delicate setting (if you have one) with cold water, using a washing solution that does not have sulfates (no Tide or anything with ‘brighteners’). Once it’s nice and clean, take it out of the washer, re-form it into it’s original shape and let it air dry. You can dry it in the dryer on low, but it won’t retain it’s crisp ‘like new’ look once it’s been tumble dried.
