Hello and welcome to Tomodachi Kitty! If you love color then you've come to the right place. I love using a variety of fabric patterns to create a unique and fun design combination. My bags, accessories and children's clothing are stylish, chic and versatile. Everything in our shop is designed by me and handmade with love and care by my wonderful mom and I. Now, in addition to our one of kind handmade items, we offer a wonderful assortment of fabric. Enjoy looking through our shop.

There are no refunds or exchanges on custom made orders or sale items. If you purchased a ready to ship item and are unhappy with your purchase we will gladly allow you to exchange your item for another ready to ship item in our shop (less the shipping cost) within 7 days of receiving your item (the item must be of equal or greater value). For exchanges to be allowed, the item must be in the condition as you received it and cannot appear used or damaged in anyway. In order to begin the exchange process, please convo me within 3 days of receiving your package. For approved exchanges, the customer is responsible for the shipping costs.
Paypal is the accepted form of payment. Payment is due within 2 days otherwise purchase will be cancelled. If you need more time to pay please let me know.

*Please note that I am able to fit this amount when the fabric is cut into 1 or 2 yards of each print. If you would like to order more than 3 yards of one continuous print the fabric will become bulkier to fold and a larger box might be needed.

I will either ship via USPS First Class or USPS Priority Mail unless otherwise noted in listing. Some of our larger bags will ship via UPS or FEDEX because of it's size. Additional services such as Express Mail, insurance, delivery confirmation are also available upon request. However, it is available with International Express Mail but can be costly. However, if you prefer it, I can definitely arrange it for you. I am happy to ship our bags, pouches and dresses to international destinations but please convo me first for shipping rates.

Because each country varies in it's customs policies, we are not responsible for any customs fees that might be added to your package upon delivery/pick up. Custom fees are the responsibility of the buyer.

If you purchase several items in one purchase, you can convo me for shipping rates and I can set up a reserved listing. Or if you over pay significantly on shipping, please let me know and I will gladly refund you the difference.

Please note that your address on Etsy is correct because I use that mailing information to send your package. I print my shipping labels directly from Etsy so please make sure your address is correct. I am not responsible if the package is sent to the wrong address. If the package is a gift or needs to be sent to another address please add it in the message to seller upon purchasing.

Lost/Damaged Packages- In the unlikely event that your package is lost, damaged or stolen in the delivery process, please note that we are not responsible for the loss or damage. For extra protection, we advise you to purchase insurance. If you would like insurance added to your shipping cost please either put a note in the message to seller and I will update your invoice or please convo me and I can set up a reserved listing.
Additional policies and FAQs
For the BUY MORE & SAVE discount on fabric orders, please send me a convo so I can put together a custom listing for you to receive the discount as listed on the fabric listing. Discounts are only applied to whole 1 yard cuts of a fabric print when purchasing 6 yards or more. Discounts do not apply to half yard fabric cuts or sale fabrics and excludes some Japanese Imports.

All of our bags, cosmetic pouches and children's dresses are handmade by my mom and I. We tend to be a little bit of a perfectionist and we really try our best to create you a high quality item. We are only able to work together two weekends out of the month because my mom has a full time job and lives two hours away. Our items are not massed produced and are made only by us. This shop basically runs as a 1.5 women show. :) During the week I cut all the fabric for fabric orders, package and ship items, and every other weekend my mom and I sew together.

Customer Orders- Due to the increase of custom orders, please allow between 4-6 business weeks (M-F) from the time payment has been received to allow us to create your item. If you have a rush order request for any item, please convo me first.

Custom/ Reserved listings- you have 3 days to make payment on your reserved listing. If payment is not received in this time, I have the right to unreserve your listing because some fabrics have a high demand of popularity and I will not be able to guarantee that the fabric will still be available to sell or make your item with. Please purchase in a timely matter.

Our collection is 100% cotton (exclusive of trims). If necessary, you can either spot clean your bag or wash in gentle cycle, line dry and then press with a warm iron as needed. Dresses can be washed in cold water, tumble dry low and low iron as needed. I also like to line dry my dresses.

If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to convo me. I am very convo friendly and I do my best to reply to you within 24 hours or less.
