I charge it by project:
If it is simple and can be finished in 2 1/2 hours by me.(even though it might take 4 hours for you) It will be $30.00 per project. You can come many times here until you finish the same project.
If it has zipper, lining, buttonholes, piping, facing, binding, more than 7 pieces of pattern pieces, or etc, it will take longer time to finish, it will be $40 and more per project. You can come many times until you finish the same project.
8. I know what I want to sew, I have seen it at Etsy, store, or on someone, but I don't have a pattern. Can you teach me how to sew it?
It will depends on what you'd like to sew. Yes, I know how to sew most of sewing products that I have seen on Etsy. You are always welcome to contact me with your ideas or pictures, I love challenges. If I know how to do it, I will provide the pattern (either draw or find a similar one) for you.
