About WildForestHandmade

Sales 171
On Etsy since 2013

Wild Forest Handmade quality made pieces inspired by the boreal for your family.

I am just a mother who blew off the old sewing machine when I was pregnant with my first. From there I created pieces for my sons, family and friends. One day I decided to turn what I enjoyed doing and start selling. I haven't looked back since. I have always believed in supporting hand made, fair trade, local trade and so on. I don't always practice what I preach but I can say that I am proud of myself for trying everyday to make a little change. In my business I try my best to support local shops as well as fellow etsy sellers for fabric, notions and trims to the tags that go on my clothing, my business cards and page designs.
I still work a full time job and one day hope that I can stay home and create with my children by my side. I love making pieces and experimenting with fabric patterns, styles and textures. It is extremely fulfilling to me when I finish something for myself, my children or someone else to wear or display in their home. To know that my hands put something together and that energy has been passed on is very humbling to me. It certainly is a challenge to learn new things and work on my off time but everyday I work a little and make a little, I learn a little and grow a little and it is a challenge I would take on again and again.

Welcome to my little shop and thanks so much for looking around! I enjoy sewing up handmade things and I hope that you enjoy what I have created. If you see something you like but prefer a different colour or size that isn't offered or just have a general comment or question please feel free to contact me through Etsy conversations.

All pieces are created by me in my smoke free home surrounded by the inspiration of two wild boys and beautiful lakes and forests. Everything is made with the concept of slow fashion. Making each piece one at a time and paying attention to all the details. Purchasing a piece from me is an investment into the way clothing needs to be purchased. It shouldn't be a fast buy and it shouldn't be cheap. It should be made with care and quality materials. It should be made to make a statement. It should be a staple solid garment in your childs wardrobe. One that is cared for and loved.

Feel free to follow my shop as pieces will change as the seasons do and as my creativity changes. You can also find me on instagram @wildforesthandmade and on facebook http://www.facebook.com/wildforesthandmade.

I am also an active member of Winnipeg Etsy and Etsy Manitoba so if you are local to the Winnipeg area you can often find my pieces at some local markets.

If you have an idea you would like to bounce off of me or have bought from me in the past and want to share pics or just message me please feel free I love hearing and seeing all the lovely photos.

Thanks so much.

Returns and exchanges
All pieces are final sale. I do guarantee quality workmanship on all my pieces and if for some reason there should be something you are not happy with I will do my best to work with you. If it is a piece where I have asked for measurements and incorrect measurements are given I can offer a small discount on a future purchase. It is your responsibility to check your childs sizes against my measurements. If for some reason you ordered the wrong size I will gladly exchange the piece as long as it hasn't been worn. The shipping will need to be covered by the buyer both ways. If it is a quality issue that is my fault I will make sure the situation is rectified. At the end of the day I want to do business and make my customers happy.
I accept PayPal and Credit Cards through Direct Checkout as well as Etsy Gift Cards. If you are a local buyer and would like a different payment not offered feel free to contact me.

On larger priced items such as quilts a deposit of 50% will be required and then final payment upon completion.
