Passionate about sewing....

All the products in my shop, my bunting and appliques, are designed and created by me. I hand draw, hand cut and hand stitch my appliques for my embroidery, which means they possess a unique quality.

Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved making things by hand. I discovered a love of sewing and embroidery from a young age and particularly enjoyed my textiles lessons at school! My Great Grandmother was a dressmaker and used to teach her daughters to make clothes for their dolls. My lovely Aunty Pauline was a very talented lady and turned her hand to an abundance of crafts including felt making, creating her own cards and quilting. Sewing is in my genes!

I made my very first string of bunting early in 2011. My inspiration came from some gorgeous bunting hanging in the marquee at my sister-in-law's wedding. After having made bunting for my children and gifts for friends and family, Beautiful Thinking was born! I opened my Etsy shop in September 2011 and am delighted to say that I have sold hundreds of buntings which have decorated homes and special events all over the world. I also supply local galleries, florists and craft shops with my bunting and lovely handmade things.

I pride myself on great customer service and thrive to ensure that my customers have a unique shopping experience. Each and every sale or commission is important to me, and I endeavour to ensure that my customers are happy with their purchases. I value your feedback, and welcome it at all times, I love to know what you think!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my wonderful and loyal customers ~ thank you from the bottom of my heart for your valued support, I am grateful for each and every order that I receive.

Thank you for visiting my bunting shop, I hope you enjoy having a look around.

Everything in my shop has been handmade by me using my own unique designs. I work from home (in a smoke/pet free environment) and I use only top quality fabrics for all my creations, as I believe they produce the best results, and I want you to be happy with your purchase.

Due to the handmade nature of my products, with many having either hand appliqued or hand embroidered details, I would recommend touch cleaning only.

My Ready to Go items will be posted within 2 working days of receiving cleared payment.

For Custom Made and Personalised items, please allow 14 days from date of purchase. However, if you would like your items sooner, please do contact me, as I will always do my very best to help.

If you need any help with making a purchase through Etsy, please take a look here:

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
I accept payment by PayPal, it's easy to use, safe and secure and you do not need to have an account with them.

Here is information on how to pay with a credit card:

Payment to be received within 2 days of purchase, please.
All goods will be posted within 1- 2 days of purchase with the exception of custom orders. Please allow 14 days for me to complete these. If, however, you require a custom order quickly, please do get in touch with me, as I will always do my very best to help.

UK purchases will be sent using Royal Mail 1st Class postage.

INTERNATIONAL purchases will be sent by Airmail.

I am unable to track or estimate delivery dates, but if you require your purchase to be given priority handling, please let me know at the time of order and I can adjust postage to include Airsure® or International Signed For. As I am sure you appreciate, once your parcel leaves me it is out of my control. I cannot accept responsibility for international orders that are held up in customs or parcels delayed in the post. Packages sent worldwide can take up to 14 days to arrive.

Buyers are responsible for any duty/tax that is due upon receipt of the package.

Whilst I endeavour to be fair with my shipping costs, please bear in mind that the shipping cost does not reflect actual postage cost alone, it includes other fees such as shipping materials, tissue paper and labels.

All shipping charges are final and when you pay for your items you agree to the shipping fees and methods of postage.
Refunds and Exchanges
I take great pride in my work and I am sure that you will be completely happy with your purchase from BEAUTIFUL THINKING.

I do, however, offer a fair returns policy in line with the Distance Selling Regulations. I would ask in the first place that you NOTIFY me of your reason and intent to return your goods within 7 days of delivery, and I will happily refund you once I have received the returned item. Goods are returned at your cost, unless there has been a mistake on my part. I will not, however, make a refund for the return postage, that is your responsibility.

Items must be returned in their original condition, if the items are received back damaged (other than postal damage) then only a part refund will be made. When returning items, I would recommend that you obtain Certificate of Postage from the Post Office as proof of postage, as I am unable to accept responsibility for parcels lost in transit.

As you would expect, all my Personalised, Custom or Made to Order Products are made to customer specifications, and are therefore, unless faulty, non-refundable.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you do purchase something from my shop, I would be delighted if you could take a moment to leave me some positive feedback, so that I know your parcel has arrived safely and that you are happy with your purchase.....thanks so much :)

Please respect the wonderful Etsy community that I am part of. I do hope that you like everything you see in my shop. I spend many valuable hours designing, creating and presenting my Beautiful Thinking products, so I would ask that you do not copy anything you see, including my shop notice and item descriptions or use my pictures without my prior permission ~ thank you.
