PDF sewing patterns.
Delivery of PDF patterns is instant. Once you have purchased a pattern you will be sent two emails to the email address associated with your order. The first email is an order confirmation/receipt, the second email contains a unique link to download your pattern and the associated instructions/guide book.

PACKAGING

Our sewing patterns are sent out in FSC certified grass paper mailing bags and are an excellent eco-friendly alternative to polythene mailing bags. Made from grass fibre, these paper mailing bags are fully recyclable and compostable. The grass is fast growing and from a renewable source. Grass paper mailing bags have the same life span as standard paper with significantly less water and energy needed in the process and no chemicals involved. The overall CO2 emissions are greatly reduced compared to standard paper. They are strong enough to be re-used, so please keep your bag and re-use it before recycling it. 

RETURNS

You are entitled to a full refund or exchange within 14 days of receipt of purchase providing items have been purchased at full price, patterns are un-opened in original packaging and in perfect condition.

We will pay the cost of returns if the products are faulty. If you are choosing to return your item due to change of mind, then you are responsible for postage. The item/s you wish to return must be posted back to us using a Tracked or ‘Signed For’ or ‘Special Delivery’ service as we cannot be responsible for any returns lost or delayed in the post. Refunds on the return postage cannot be made unless the item is faulty.

Please contact us at info@papertheorypatterns.com before returning any items.

Due to the nature of digital files we do not accept returns on our PDF patterns or products. If you have downloaded any parts of the pattern (e.g. by clicking on the link), the right to return is void even if you haven’t opened the downloaded files.
