Hourly Sewing Rate - Custom interiors, curtains, cushion covers, slipcovers, outdoor living spaces, etc  $35/hour

Cushions : If you need to have a cushion made, There's a few things for you to consider before we meet: Do you want to be able to remove them to wash them? Do you already have the fabric? Do you already have the foam? Do you have a pre-exsisting cushion or cover to work with or does a pattern need to be made?$25 hour estimates given after seeing full project. Please have the dimensions/pictures to me prior to the consultation

Things to know: Client is responsible to supply fabric for all Custom Orders. All fabrics must be pre-washed as care instructions state (TIP: be sure to snap a picture of the care instructions/content on the end of the bolt of fabric when you purchase it at the store. It's the last time you'll see it!), prior to handing off to me.

I can give you the necessary fabric yardage needed to complete project if you aren't sure, just ask!

Any specific notions needed due to the design of custom project will be included in the final bill, this is not part of the labor estimates for sewing listed in this price list.
