Chester was a huge hit at the baby shower!! He was a perfect addition to my nautical themed basket. 5 stars are not enough as this seller was wonderful to deal with and the product was extraordinary. Everyone needs an original Murphy Whale. You won't be disappointed!!

Priscilla was everything I hoped for! She is very soft and will make a great baby gift. Cindy was extremely helpful making this custom order and gave me plenty of options. I couldn't be happier!

About

A pod is a group of whales.

I've always made art and stuff and now I'm joining the Etsy pod.
Robert Cushman Murphy founded the Whaling Museum I work at, so I created the Murphy Whale to found my shop. After several prototypes, I settled on this design...the sort of 2D tail mimics our museum's new logo, while the 3D body reminds me of my grumpy Frenchie, Beatrice (also my 1st Assistant in Charge of Production).
Please enjoy!

Thar She Sews is my little venture into a creative outlet for me (after years of doing photography and painting) and a small donation to the wonderful Whaling Museum in the sleepy little town of Cold Spring Harbor, NY.
Thanks for stopping by!

Payment
Credit cards, debit cards and Etsy gift cards. Since I'm new, if I overcharge anyone for shipping, I will gladly refund that portion. Shipping is as shipping does.
Shipping
I ship Priority Mail unless you'd like to make other arrangements. International orders, help me out and let me know what shipping method works best for your country.
Ready-made orders will go out within 3-5 days of payment. Custom orders will ship within 4-6 weeks.
Refunds and Exchanges
All items are handmade and one-of-a-kind, so slight variations and mutations are to be expected. Therefore, I most likely cannot accept returns, unless I sent out the wrong whale or something, but please try to love your whale anyway. Don't make him feel he's disappointed you; whales can be very sensitive. If the two of you just cannot work it out (sometimes personalities just clash) and you are completely unsatisfied with your order, please contact me ASAP. All cases will be handled on an individual basis.

Of course, if your whale decides to jump ship, so to speak, and gets lost in transit, please let me know and I will help you find him (or at least a suitable replacement).


CANCELING AN ORDER: If you decide to cancel your order after it has been shipped, you are responsible for paying any return postage. Whales must be unharmed (physically and emotionally) and in re-sellable condition; the refund won't be given until I have received the items in hand.

Basically if there's any problems, just convo me, I'm sure the whales and I can put our heads together and solve the problem so that you continue to grow your pod. :)
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders welcomed! Contact me to choose your fabric colors from my list of swatches, or if you have favorite colors not listed just let me know.
Please allow 4-6 weeks for custom orders to be created, as this is not yet my full-time job.
Custom orders do require a 50% deposit once fabrics are chosen; balance due upon delivery.
