About

From start to finish, our HANDMADE monsters will make you SMILE!

Way back in 1989, there was a girl named Sabrina who wanted to make cool stuff that would make other people smile. So she did! For many years, she made dolls, and costumes, and toys, and home decor, and jewelry, and much more. Her little business morphed and changed names a few times..."Kitten's Kids", "Sabrina's Scrap Bag", and "Sabrina's Scraps" to name a few. Whatever she called it, people really seemed to like the goodies she made out of re-purposed materials on a shoestring budget (long before this was fashionable!) Before long, her craft goodies were all over San Diego County, and finding their ways into homes in other states.
And in the midst of all this crafting chaos, she became a MOM too! Two kids later, she found herself so busy, that it was time to take a break from the crafts...it was a long time away...more than enough time to charge her creative batteries and raise a couple of awesome adults (with the help of her supportive husband.)
23 years after making her first doll for sale, she found herself with totally NEW ideas in her head, and plethora of teenagers surrounding her with even MORE new ideas. But how could she do it alone???
Lo and behold, she found she didn't HAVE to do it alone...she had a built-in partner in crime...ahem...in CREATIVITY! So "Mostly Monsters CV" was hatched...
with daughter Taylor's artistic ideas & pop-culture sensibilities, and Mom Sabrina's crafty know-how, the team got to work making some of the most ADORABLE monsters around!
Colorful furry hats, cuddly pillows, not-so-scary monsters, dolls, toys, jewlery, barrettes, and the list goes on!
We start with hand-drawn ideas (we've got three Composition books FILLED with ideas and illustrations so far!!!), create our own patterns from tissue paper and cardstock, and let the sewing machine FLY as our little guys come to life! (In case you wondered, most of our machine sewing is done on a 1963 Singer Sewing Machine!( Many of our items are one-of-kind, and even those with twins, triplets, or those who come in "Flocks" retain their individual personalities with hand-sewn expressions and details.
As long as we've got ideas percolating and nimble fingers to create them, the monsters will just keep on coming!!! And if our monsters have made you SMILE, then we know we've done our job well.
Profits from this venture are going directly to pay Taylor's college tuition and support her budding career as a Film Director, so we thank you in advance for helping her earn her first "Oscar"! Wanna see a MINI-FILM about our Crafty Life?

FYI: All our goods are handmade in a SMOKE-FREE environment.
However, not "cat-free", although we do store our items where our little rascals can't get in, and give our items a quick "lint-roll" before shipping.

Welcome to our shop! We hope that you like what you see and will come back often, as we are constantly creating and listing NEW items for sale!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
At this time, we are accepting payments by PAYPAL or Direct Checkout (including Etsy gift cards).

We are not currently listing International Shipping Rates on most of our items, but we would be happy to discuss options with you!
Purchases within California will automatically add a California Sales Tax rate.
Shipping
All our items are shipped via USPS, typically in an appropriately-sized padded envelope, as most of our items are soft and unbreakable. Whenever possible, we will do what we can to keep within the designated shipping "budget" listed (as shown on the listing), and when appropriate, we will add shipping confirmation, etc.
Some items will be combined in order to save shipping fees. Once we ship the item, we will refund any significant shipping overages as quickly as we possibly can.

If you are buying multiple items, please contact us BEFORE paying so we can help determine the best way to save you $$$ on shipping.
YES! WE WILL SHIP INTERNATIONALLY! JUST ASK! Due to the large variety of styles and sizes of items in our shop, we simply haven't been able to predetermine the shipping costs of each item...so just ask! Let us know exactly what you are looking at, and we'll quickly research the actual shipping cost for you and get back to you ASAP!
Refunds and Exchanges
In the rare case that you are unsatisfied with your item(s), please contact us immediately so that we can work with you to resolve any issues.

Should a full or partial refund be deemed necessary, the original item must be returned in original condition (with tracking and insurance) with all tags attached before any refund can be processed. (Customer will be responsible for all shippping charges on returned items.) Once we have received the item, we will work with you for an equitable resolution.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you are out of the US, but would like to purchase any of our items, PLEASE LET US KNOW! We will be happy to discuss shipping options.

Show season heads-up...from time to time, our "monsters" venture out in the world to local craft shows. If the show is a large one, or at a large distance, we may choose to put our shop in "vacation mode", disabling our active listings for a short time. We would hate for even 1 customer to be disappointed if the item they've purchased was no longer in stock! So once the inventory has been recounted and we've had time to remove SOLD items from our shop, we'll reopen the shop as soon as we can!

Thanks for understanding that we are a small mom & daughter shop working hard to give great service to our customers!
