Over the years of selling on etsy, I’ve had the pleasure of making lots of custom ordered rag totes. I love the process of custom orders…talking to my customers about what they are looking for, figuring out which pretty fabrics to use, of course the sewing :). Here are just a few of the totes I’ve made for custom orders. If you’ve had your eye on a rag quilt tote, but it’s just not exactly what you’re looking for, I would love to make just the right one for you. I try to make the custom order process as easy as possible for you because I know it’s a little intimidating to ask about having something made special. Just send me an etsy convo and I’ll get back with you as soon as possible.

I’ve had to change the amount of days to complete custom orders to 60 days from 45! And that’s because I’ve been getting one custom order after another lately, so it’s all good! 🙂 I just love getting up every morning knowing my day is going to be busy sewing up the orders, taking pictures of the progress for instagram, and helping new customers figure out the perfect fabrics for their totes and quilts. Right now, I’m working on 4 beautiful totes for a customer who chose lovely tropical colors and prints for all of them. I should be done with them early this week and the next order will be a king size Christmas rag quilt! Can’t wait to get started on it! The fabrics that we picked for it are so, so pretty!! Here are pictures of all the fabrics for these orders. If you are interested in a custom order, please feel free to convo me through etsy and I would love to work with you!
I’m so ready for Spring! If you are, too, and are looking for a bright, colorful, fresh look to your home for Spring and Summer, you have to see all the rag quilts I have available for sale in my etsy shop. There are different size lap quilts, twin, full, and queen quilts. If you don’t see anything that interests you, I have listings to “pick your fabrics” or send me a convo and we can talk about a custom order.

A few days ago I had a customer ask about a custom order. She searched on Etsy and found a number of fabrics that she wanted to have made into an extra large Christmas lap quilt. So, I got busy figuring out how much of each fabric I’d need and if each place that I needed to order from would have enough fabric in stock. I was a little concerned about the cost because we have fabric coming from many different sellers including one from Australia and shipping for each was going to add up. But, she loves all the fabrics she picked out and decided to go with them all! 😀 We sent messages back and forth for the better part of the day and I really enjoyed the process of working with her!
I added a new page to my website called “custom orders” and put all her fabrics on the page, so she could see how they would look together instead of a picture here and a picture there. After we got everything figured out, I ordered all the fun fabrics she chose. Two arrived already and the rest should hopefully be here by the end of the week. 🙂 I can’t wait to get started on her quilt! Pictures soon! 🙂
I know there are times when customers are looking for the perfect quilt and just don’t see anything ready to ship that has the look they’re wanting. If you don’t see just what you’re looking for in my shop, I’m adding custom, made to order listings for you to “Pick Your Own Fabrics”. Each listing is for a different size quilt, from crib to king. I’m still in the process of adding them to my Etsy shop, so please check back over the next couple of days to see them all.
I’ve put all the information on how to pick your fabrics in each listing. You get to choose from thousands of fabrics on both hawthornethreads.com and hancocks-paducah.com. You’ll put the names of the fabrics in the “notes to seller” box at checkout, I’ll order the fabrics, and get started on the perfect quilt for you. If you get stuck or have any questions on the process, please send me a message and I’ll help in any way I can. I want you to enjoy creating your own beautiful rag quilt!
