FAQs

What is SEWSQUAD's shipping policy?

you pay for shipping, which in most cases only costs a few dollars within the continental United States. 

We will ship to almost anywhere, but we do not pay for shipping. 

We generally ship within a day of receiving your order and the package usually arrives within a few days of shipping.

Does SEWSQUAD accept returns?

No, SEWSQUAD does not typically accept returned items.  However, if you have an issue with one of our products or how it was shipped, please feel free to reach out to us through our Contact page.  We will consider special cases.  

What do I need to use my Fabric Fake Outs Heat Transfers?

All you need is an ordinary iron, a pair of scissors, a towel, a hard flat surface and a dash of creativity.

What type of material should I use for my Fabric Fake Outs?

Any white or light colored material made of cotton or a cotton blend should work.  The more flat the material is the better the color with transfer will to it.  

What kind of surface should I iron my Fabric Fake Outs on?

You need a hard, flat heat resistant surface to iron your Fabric Fake Outs on.  A wood or hard plastic table is fine and so is a hard wood floor.  Don't forget to place your towel between your material and the surface.  Do not use an ironing board since they are typically cushoned and you won't be able to apply consistent pressure to your material.  

Do I need a sewing machine to use SEWSQUAD patterns?

Absolutely not! You can make every SEWSQUAD sewing pattern with just a needle and thread.  Of course, we don't have a problem if you'd like to use a sewing machine, either ;) 

Even without using a sewing machine, it shouldn't take you longer than a few hours to make a piece of clothing with one of our patterns.  They're that easy to use! 

How do I know which fabric will look good with each pattern?

Well, that's up to you and your own imagination.  We do provide a Trend Report with each pattern so you know how to style each piece and can see some of the fabrics we chose to use. 

Glad you asked!  Check out the product descriptions on sewsquad.com for fabric estimates.
