Announcement    All items are ready to ship unless labeled “ORDER ONLY.” Orders go out on week days in late morning or early afternoon. Saturday mailings are made in the morning. They go out in one day.

Don’t let the fact that I don’t have a hat in the size/color you need keep you from ordering. I now accept custom orders for hats. Depending on the size/complexity, the hats take from 4-8 hours to make. Please convo me if you want a particular hat in a different color, color combination or size before ordering. I can then let you know whether I have other orders ahead of yours and approximately when I can complete your hat. They can usually go out the next day.

I also take custom orders for afghans. If you see an afghan you like in my shop (more designs coming soon), but want it in different colors, please convo me before ordering. Once we come to an arrangement on colors I will list your special order and you can purchase it. Baby blankets take me about two weeks to make. If I cannot find your choice of color yarn in my local store(s) and have to order it, that will take an additional 10 days. Also, if I have other orders ahead of yours that will add time to the delivery date. I will let you know how long it will take before you order.

About Me & Bluebonnet KidZ

Why the name Bluebonnet KidZ? Well, I’ve always lived in north Texas (USA) where our state flower is the bluebonnet. In spring, especially when we have had plenty of rain, the berms along the highways in north and central Texas are a sea of blue. You’ll see people pull over on the side of the road (really not a safe thing to do on the interstate!), unload the kids, and have them sit in the bluebonnets for their spring pictures.

Why crochet? When I was young and single, I taught myself to crochet. The yarn I used was inexpensive and made for inexpensive gifts. After I got married and had a baby and a full-time job, I was too busy with life like most young marrieds. So crochet went the way of many hobbies. After my granddaughter was born, my daughter asked for a crocheted afghan to match the colors in the bedding for her future “big girl” room. Since I hadn’t crocheted in many years, I had to learn all over again and go through some trial and error to get it just right. That is when I realized how much I loved working with yarn making things for babies and children and, occasionally, for myself.

Although I am a grandma, I try to keep up with current trends and colors for hats and blankets. I hope you will find sophisticated and fun hats and modern crocheted baby blankets in my shop. Every piece is crocheted with love and attention to detail. I pride myself on the quality of my work.

My favorite models are my sweet grandchildren who live 800 miles away. As you would expect, the photo sessions aren’t as easy to set up as I would like!

I owe a special thanks to my daughter who is my main hat photographer. Thanks are also due to my husband who puts up with all the boxes of yarn, buttons, packing materials and other crochet clutter in the main areas of the house.

At this time I do not accept custom orders, but if you have suggestions for hats or blankets and favorite colors, please email me at Jan [!at] BluebonnetKidZ.com. I am always looking for new ideas. If I choose your idea, I’ll email you when the project is done to give you first choice on purchasing the hat or blanket. Check my Etsy shop and website for new products.

Thank you for visiting my shop. Your purchases allow me to do what I’m passionate about and allow me to obtain new patterns and learn more about my craft.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

Measure around the child’s head. If the measurement is on the high side of a size, you might want to order the next larger size. Also measure from the crown of the head to the forehead for the length of the hat.

There is a chart with each listing in the pictures section (last picture). Please use this to choose the correct size.

Care instructions

For hats, hand washing and drying flat is recommended for best results. Please do not wring. Do not bleach, iron, or dry clean. To shape a beanie before it is completely dry, you can twirl it on your fist to create the shape of the head. Complete the drying with the hat in a standing position. If the hat includes a pompom, fluff it when completely dry.

Shipping Policies

All packages are mailed via First Class mail. I ship Monday-Friday of each week by 11:00 a.m. Central (US) time. I will not ship on holidays as the Post Office is not open. In this case I will ship on the next business day. You will be alerted as to the shipping day during all holidays.
USPS Priority Mail/First Class is estimated to arrive within 2-3 business days, however it is not guaranteed. Bluebonnet KidZ will not issue any refunds if the post office fails to deliver the package within its stated time frame.

Forms of Payment

I accept PayPal and major credit cards accepted through Direct Checkout. If you wish to cancel an order you need to contact me before the item is shipped or you will be responsible for all shipping charges to return it.

Custom and personalized orders

Please convo me if you see a hat you love but want it in a different color or color combination. In most cases, I can have the hat in the mail in 1-2 days. I will let you know if it will take longer. Custom orders cannot be returned for a refund unless something happens to it in the mail. Please convo me if you need to return it to get instructions.

Returns

If for any reason you are not fully satisfied with your purchase, please return it to me within 14 days from the purchase date for a full refund of the purchase price. Shipping costs are non-refundable. Items must be in their original condition and the buyer is responsible for all shipping fees unless there was a problem with something on my end. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value. Please contact me prior to making a return for approval and instructions.
I will issue the refund once the item arrives to me safely and in the same condition in which it was sent.

Hand-made product differences

All pieces are created by hand and no two will be exactly the same. Please allow for slight variances from what is shown in the photos. Buttons and embellishments can vary based on availability.

Safety Precautions

Babies or small children should not be left alone with any handmade items that have buttons, flowers, or ribbons. These items are for photo props or to be worn with adult supervision.
