My male guinea pig and male cuy loved the new bed and I loved the new pee pad less smell in my room now. I would buy form them again and I love the color and Design you just can't get it in the United States. Vary well done. Thank you.

About

Piggie slave turned piggie sewing slave!

The story of my shop begins with guinea pigs. I have owned these adorable pets for almost a decade and as the years have passed I've learnt more about how to proparly care for them and what they benefit from most to be happy.

A big step for me was joining the youtube community - yes making videos about guinea pigs! But it is also about sharing your experiences and learning from others. I have picked up some great advice, most importantly that piggies need space! My pigs C&C cages now gives them 5 times more space than the old pet store cage I had, and they love it!

With a big cage comes the problem of bedding, one which is beautifully solved by fleece and adored by the residents. The next step for me was having a go as sewing some cozies for my guineas, and I discovered I had a knack for it! I also found a wealth of beautiful fabrics that nobody else was exploiting to make their guinea pig products - I thought "I've found my niche!".

And so my shop grew and my fabric collection expanded with the help of my own piggie product testing minions (although they know I'll always be one to serve them - spoilt pigs!).

I love my Etsy shop and one of the things I enjoy most is talking to customers who want to place a custom order, and making friends along the way. Thank you for visiting my shop and I hope you enjoy it!

Please get in touch if you have any questions, be it about guinea pigs, fabrics, sizes, new products or anything else!

- Sarah :)

    I alone run my shop and am proud to do so! I love creating new products and turning to my own piggies for product testing. I focus on quality - hand picking the best (and cutest) materials to sew items that brighten up any cage and any piggie!

Payment
All payment is received through paypal. If for any reason payment is delayed please get in touch with me. I don't post any items until payment is confirmed but I am prepared to hold onto an item for you if there are any problems with payment.
Shipping
I post worldwide and have an honest postage policy - on average I do not make any extra profit from shipping items. I say "on average" because sometimes when international buyers purchase more than one item they may pay slightly less or slightly more than the postage cost - if you want me to calculate the exact weight and postage for you before you order I'd be happy to do so - though it never usually differs by more than £1.22.

UK deliveries: I use Royal mail first class. However if you want to save on pennies and would prefer second class please convo me before you buy so I can alter the postage.

Rest of the world: I use Royal Mail Airmail to ship to worldwide destinations. This is the cheapest option. There is no tracking, however if items are lost compensation up to £46 can be claimed within 6 months of postage. I take no responsibility for items lost in the post but I would be happy to look into gettng compensation from Royal Mail for you if your item does not arrive.

If your order is large and you would prefer a more secure form of postage (that offers tracking and a higher compensation amount) please get in touch - I will be happy to help!

International Delivery time: Royal mail aims to deliver between 7-10 days after posting, however this can be variable.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do offer refunds once the item is returned to me and only if it has not been used. I aim to produce top quality products and my photos are a good representation of the colours used (note this can vary with computer screens!). If there are any problems and you are not happy with your order please contect me.
Additional policies and FAQs
Photos: Recently I have got so many photos of different items, I now use pre-existing photos, meaning the cotton print may not be exactly the same as in the picture (obviously I still use the same material though!). However, with custom orders or items which use a large cotton print (which can vary more depending on which part is cut out) I will take new photos.

Custom Orders: I aim to complete custom orders within a week of them being received if I have all the materials. However, sometimes this is longer if I have to order materials in. This may also be longer if I am away or if I am busy with an upcoming university deadline for example. However, I will let you know as soon as you place your order (or before if you want to enquire) when it should be ready and aim to have them completed as fast as possible! I always keep my customers updated with how their order is proceeding :).
