FAQs - Ornament Finishing
What sort of finishing do you do?
I finish ornaments in a cookie style with a loop for hanging.This includes 1 or 2 (sometimes 3!) color handmade twisted cording, and cotton backing fabric.I'm not set up to do monogramming, but I'll sew a little year charm into the back of the ornament.
Can you do special shapes?
My listings are for round or square designs.If you have oval, rectangular or special shaped canvases, please message me with a picture and measurements of your canvas, and I'll tell you what size to order. I do not prefer to finish hearts, or anything with a deep interior crevice. (Know your strengths, I say!)
How long will it take you to finish my ornaments?
I like to return finished ornaments quickly... usually 5 weeks or less from the day they arrive at my studio! For this reason, I only accept a limited number of orders at a time. When the listing opens, it usually sells out very quickly! If you'd like to be notified when I am going to open up new slots for finishing, please submit your email address below!
Do you have a Christmas deadline?
I like to return finished ornaments quickly... usually 5 weeks or less from the day they arrive at my studio! I'm planning to accept new orders through October, and maybe a few in November. If you subscribe to my newsletter, you will get regular updates about any finishing deadlines.
Can I send in my own fabric for backing?
You are welcome to send your own fabric for backing. Heavyweight fabrics (like a thick brocade or tweed) do not work well. Just basic quilting cotton is the best! Your fabric should be at least 1 inch bigger than your canvas design on all sides.
Also... it would be ideal if you send enough for at least 2 backings. I get really really nervous when I know I only have one chance to get it right!
Do you offer a discount for bulk orders or take on finishing from shops?
No, I try to keep my prices reasonable, and I have ALMOST more work than I can handle right now!
Where can I see examples of your finishing work?
Check my Instagram! Nearly every Friday I post a selection of finishes that I have sent out recently. IG: @onepartwhimsy
