About

What's a Ruggle all about?

I started making Ruggles when I had my son. I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for when I shopped. I liked the idea behind a tag blanket, but they were too small. Normal blankets were nice, but boring. As a child, I had a Tiger rug my Mom had latch hooked for me.*

I started making my own version – a (stuffed) Tiger skin rug. My son liked it, but it was a bit too big for portability.

I took that idea, made it smaller and added tag like elements and voila! My Ruggles were born.

I love the idea that I am creating something that will be loved and can give comfort. My hope is that the security blankets I make will be used and loved and then passed down to a new generation.

Follow my blog or connect with me on Facebook for news on contests and sales!

*This is how I remembered it. My Mom, of course, told me I had it all wrong. My rug was a bunny, and was oval. It was my brother who had the tiger. We finally dug out the pictures and it turns out she was totally right. I’m glad for my revisionist history version though, because without it I might never have made that first Ruggle. :)

General information about me can be found in my profile.

Our household is smoke free, but pet friendly. I do my best to keep hair out of my crafts but I can't guarantee a stray* won't end up in your package. I do have a limited number of custom slots available, so if you don't see exactly what you're looking for let me know. I'm always game for a new challenge! I love hearing from people, so feel free to convo me with questions, requests or if there's something you'd like to see in my shop.

Each item in my shop is individually handmade by me with high quality materials. My Ruggles are unique handcrafted items that are plush, soft and comforting.

Belly customization is standard! Just let me know what you'd like stitched there in the provided area when checking out. Choose your child's intials or a short name (8 letters or less work best), a special symbol, a simple belly button or leave his belly blank. Either way he'll be ready for any adventure your little one can think up!

Listings are for the Ruggle pictured. They are complete and ready to ship!

My Ruggles combine the visual and tactile interest of a taggie with the size and smooshability of a lovey allowing them to be loved from birth through toddler-hood. Their soft fur and belly will appeal to newer babies while older babies will appreciate the different colors and textures in the fabric claws. Toddlers will find the size perfect for carrying and the stuffed head comfy when used as a pillow.

Sturdy enough for any adventure - including a turn through the washing machine! Machine washable on the delicate cycle, line dry or tumble dry low. All their pieces and parts are securely fastened for safety. Blankets and toys of any kind shouldn't be left unattended with small children.

They measure approximately 18" wide from claw to claw and their bodies (from nose to 'tocks) are about 26". Long tails add another foot or so. All of my Ruggles are affectionately made by hand so may have a few eccentric bits, but these just add to their unique character.


*hair, although if you'd like a stray critter that can probably be arranged. :)

Accepted payment methods

  • Other Method
Payment
I accept Paypal. Items should be paid for when purchased. If payment is not received within 3 days of purchase, the sale will be canceled and the item re-listed. Please let me know if you are having trouble paying. Negative feedback will be left if I don't hear from a non-paying purchaser and I hate leaving negative feedback!

You do not need a PayPal Account to pay for your items through PayPal:

You can choose the PayPal Option during checkout. After you submit your order click the "Pay Now" button. Scroll Down and you will see the option to pay with a Credit or Debit Card WITHOUT having to sign up for a PayPal account.

If you are having trouble with the checkout process, check out this link:
http://www.etsy.com/help_guide_checkout.php

Georgia residents will be charged 6% sales tax on checkout. I know, it sucks, but death and taxes and all that.
Shipping
Everything listed in my shop is completed and ready to ship unless otherwise noted. Pictures are of the actual item you will receive. I ship within two days of payment clearing. I ship domestically using USPS first class mail with delivery confirmation.

I am happy to ship internationally. International shipments are via USPS first class mail. International customers who wish to have a tracking number can upgrade to registered mail for $12 more. Just let me know when ordering. Please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.

Insurance is standard on items over $100. If you'd like to upgrade to faster shipping or insurance on items under $100, please contact me when placing your order. If you fall into the "Everywhere Else" shipping category and your actual shipping charges are less than listed by $1 or more I will refund the difference via Paypal.

Please be sure to enter your correct shipping address for purchases. In the event that Etsy and PayPal show two different addresses, your package will be shipped to the PayPal address.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be happy with your purchase. Please contact me with any issues you may have once your item arrives. Since they are used by young children, I cannot accept returns of Ruggles. In the sad event that you are not entirely happy with your purchase, please convo me so we can try and sort it out.

I'll happily repair any critter who should need a bit of extra stuffing or a new seam here and there. Just pay shipping both ways. Replacement loveys for those sadly lost or damaged beyond repair will be made at a discount. Just convo me. I also put these replacements at the top of the priority list to keep distraught children (and parents!) wait to a minimum.
Additional policies and FAQs
Feel free to convo me with any additional questions.
