A new dream

I have always been passionate about a variety of crafts and have tried many throughout my life from pottery to cake decorating to woodwork. I even did a Didgeridoo making class at school which is ironic given I've ended up living in Australia!

As a young child I was encouraged by my Mum and Nana to get creative. Mum made a lot of clothes for me growing up and I have fond (well almost) memories of standing on a kitchen chair and her accidentally stabbing me with numerous pins as she fitted various garments to me! My Nana also made stuffed toys (among other thngs) and I can remember looking through her stash of synthetic furs and 'eyes' and making toys together. A career in Nursing kept me busy for some years after I left home but a severe back injury renewed my love and interest in craft as I needed something to keep me amused during those long boring hours lying flat! So I got heavily into cross stitch which was a real tonic for me. Sadly my health has prevented me from returning to Nursing but instead a new career and dream has come out of my love of craft. For about a year I have been regularly posting photos of things I have made for friends and family on Facebook. My friends started commenting that I should make things to sell. So, after a lot of thought and some training in starting a small business, here I am running HANSYmade!

We have converted the front room of our house into a lovely sewing studio. One wall is entirely windows so it is a sunny and bright place to work. I love wandering in there and gazing at my stash of beautiful fabrics and collection of sewing books. It is such an inspiring room to be in. I have been so fortunate to have a clever friend to custom make me a special desk and it feels wonderful to be able to work from home within my physical limitations. With the simple sewing machine my husband gave me for my 30th birthday I am busy designing and making beautiful things for HANSYmade and loving every minute of it.

Thank you to everyone who has helped and supported me in my new venture. I am so thrilled to be doing this!

Welcome to the HANSYmade shop on Etsy! I lovingly create all the items in my shop from the very best quality materials I can find. My aim is to bring a little colour and happiness into your world from my sunny studio in Seven Mile Beach, Tasmania. HANSYmade items are unique and offer something a bit different in this world of mass production! I really hope you enjoy your HANSYmade item as much as I have enjoyed making it!

If you are an international customer, you may prefer to view my shop in your own currency (see: Your Account; Settings; Preferences).

HANSYmade is committed to customer satisfaction and I value feedback about your shopping experience. So, if you would like to get in touch, please send me an email to hansymade [!at] hotmail.com or message me through Etsy's conversations.

Please check the shop regularly as I'll be listing new items frequently. Happy browsing!

I do not accept personal cheques.

PLEASE ENSURE that you provide an accurate mailing address at the time of checkout (check Paypal account settings). HANSYmade cannot be held responsible for any shipments sent to a different address than the one provided.


I work hard to ensure that your items are dispatched as quickly as possible from my studio! Once payment is received and confirmed your order will be sent within a business day. Unfortunately Australia Post outlets are only open Monday-Friday, business hours. If you order an item over the weekend, it will be shipped as soon as possible on Monday morning. Please note that Tasmanian Public Holidays may delay things slightly. Tasmania is GMT +10.


To keep prices low, all items are sent with standard postage (no insurance). Australia Post will not reimburse a lost or damaged product unless insurance is purchased via Registered Post. PLEASE NOTE if you require insurance on your item whilst it is in transit, you will need to send me a message via the Etsy Conversation tool so that I can set up a 'Custom' listing for the extra shipping cost. Unfortunately HANSYmade cannot take responsibility for items once they have been posted or for items that have been damaged enroute to you.


Australia Post advise their customers that international packages take 5-10 working days and packages within Australia take 3-5 working days. However, please be aware that these dates are only estimates and that the Postal service, Customs etc is out of HANSYmade's control! At certain times of the year eg Christmas, there may be delays to the Postal Service so please keep this in mind and order early to avoid disappointment. HANSYmade cannot be held responsible for any late deliveries. Please contact me after 14 days if you have not received your order.


PLEASE NOTE: any customs charges (albeit highly unlikely) are the responsibility of the buyer not HANSYmade.

You must contact me within 7 days of receiving your goods to inform me of any defects in your HANSYmade product.

PLEASE NOTE: items returned via post will not be accepted unless previously reported to me via email or Etsy conversations and necessary arrangements made.

If items are defective and the problem is reported to me within 7 days (see above), I will be happy to replace your purchase with a matching item (subject to availability) or will refund your item once the damaged goods are returned to me. The item must not have been washed, used or worn. Return postage costs are the responsibility of the buyer. In the event of an arranged return, you will need to retain proof of shipping.

HANSYmade does not accept returns or exchanges unless the item is defective (restrictions outlined above).
