I create needle felted emotions to bring you special moments

I am a creative person who always makes things. I am a beading artist who fell in love with needle felting and hasn't been able to stop ever since. Being a biologist, I love nature, all living things, but I could literally never hurt a fly. Needle felting lets me recreate animals and bring their beauty to many homes. I also love cute, emotional things that express deep feelings, so I design and make them for everyone to enjoy.
I run this shop with my daughter who helps me with UX design and takes our products to art fairs around Seattle. Most of the time we live in different countries but love working together!

Welcome! My name is Melinda Kadar and I welcome you to my unique handmade needle felted items in my Etsy shop! Needle felting is my true love, let me share it with you.

My sculptures are one-of-a-kind, hand crafted works of art. Each sculpture takes from 4 hours for the very small pieces to several weeks for the larger pieces.

I do not use any electric tools to speed up the process of needle felting giving you a much better quality. Making my products makes me happy and I would like you to be equally happy for buying them!

The wool I use is not the wool you remember making you itchy. It is soft and beautiful - something you want to touch, because it is organic, feels and looks natural. I buy wool from resources where animals are respected, from small businesses that thrive for beautiful products.

I am a perfectionist, I treat every item as if it were my only item, one that I was making for my own home. Beauty and emotions drive me, this is what my art represents.

Returns and exchange details
-I always want my customer to be 100% happy. If you are unsatisfied with an item for any reason, please convo me ASAP so we can discuss what to do.

-You should read the introduction of each product carefully .. Please also note that the color on the photographs may differ slightly from actual products due to differences in the color calibration of individual computer monitors, camera, etc… Needle felted items are durable but they are not meant as toys. They are decor items that should be kept away from pets.

- You will never get an item from my shop that is of less quality than pictured - people always compliment that my items are even more beautiful than what they expected.

Payment
At present I accept Bank Transfer or payment through PayPal.
Shipping
Please note that some of the items ship from Hungary others from the USA as I spend considerable time in both countries. New items and custom orders ship from Hungary most of the time. Items with US shipping are shipped as first class packages, items with Hungarian shipping are shipped as registered priority mail. It may take weeks for a package to reach countries far from Hungary. You may choose faster shipping, but that increases the shipping price.
For buyers outside the US I generally ship from Hungary for better services and faster delivery.

General delivery times for items shipping from Hungary:
Europe: 5-7 days
USA and everywhere else: 10-14 days (20 was the most we have had)
Free shipping for Hungary is only valid for packages that are "postán maradó", if you buy such a listing please provide the address of the post office where you want to collect your package.

Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions I am glad to answer.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am happy to do custom work. If you see something you like, but you want specific colors, another size etc, let me know. The better I get to know you, the more personal items I can make for you! I make all breeds of custom made dogs from photos and realistic animals in excellent quality at an affordable price. I recreate wonderful memories, forever pets! If you can dream it, I can make it for you!
