This sweet bundle is everything! We can’t get enough of our customers’ photos!
I don’t know what I love best about this picture. Is it baby Dru’s curl on top of her head, our Sugar Plum Peony swaddle, or the @fancyfreefinery berry cluster? I don’t think I can pick!
Gangs all here! Pink stripes—perfect for Valentine’s Day and every day.

Due to the custom nature of our items, we thank you for understanding that we cannot accept returns.

We stand behind our items and always want you to be happy with your purchase, and if there is a flaw in your item, please send a photograph and description of the problem and we will work towards a resolution.

After 24 hours, if the fabric for your item has been ordered we will not be able to issue a refund. Thank you for understanding!
Shipping
Shipping can be a headache, so just a couple of things to keep in mind:

Please double check your address before you submit your order. I do my best to change shipping addresses when there is a request, but I cannot be responsible for shipping addresses.

If your item has been marked as delivered but you have not received the package, there is, at that point, nothing that I am able to do. It is the customer's responsibility to track down the package on their end. I have seen this situation resolved with happy endings a number of times. I suggest speaking with neighbors to see if someone took the package in for you, talking to your mail carrier or reaching out to your local post office.

If your item shows the status of "Undeliverable as Addressed," this is another situation in which the responsibility falls to the customer. As I have no input into the way you address your package, I cannot be responsible for packages whose addresses are deemed undeliverable. If an undeliverable package is returned to me, I will issue a refund for the items or resend once a second shipping fee is paid, but if the package does not come back to me, I cannot issue a refund. It is your responsibility as the addressee, to talk to your local post office about the package, as they will surely be the most knowledgeable source on this matter.

If your domestic order has been lost in transit--that is, USPS tracking shows no movement of the item for the last 60 days--you will be issued a shop credit, pending a successful insurance claim from USPS. For international orders, I am unable to offer this same guarantee because in many cases, tracking info is not updated accurately. Please remember, packages can be held in customs at a length determined by the destination country, and I have no control over any country's customs or mail service and cannot be held responsible for delays.
Privacy
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect

To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, mailing address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
• as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) Providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
• Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
• Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
• Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
• Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

How Long I Store Your Information

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 7 years.
Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
• Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
• Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

How to Contact Me

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Sarah Schaitkin, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at sarah.schaitkin [!at] gmail.com.

Frequently asked questions
Do you offer fabric swatches?

Yes! The listing is right here:
https://www.etsy.com/listing/224841062/fabric-swatch-choose-any-fabric?ref=shop_home_active_1

May I cancel my order?

Orders may be cancelled within 24 hours of placement. After 24 hours, if your fabric has been ordered, we are unable to cancel your order. Thanks for your understanding!

Do you sell crib bumpers/crib skirts/curtains, etc.?

We're so sorry, but at this time we are unable to offer products other than those which we already sell.

When will my order ship?

We are working on a four week turnaround time, so you can expect that your order will ship 4 weeks from the date of purchase. Please allow a few additional days for USPS to get your order to you.

I'm going to a baby shower in two weeks--is there any chance I could get this package sooner?

Yikes! We wish we could turn orders around more quickly but our fabric comes from a custom printing company that prints our designs on demand. It takes upwards of 2 weeks for us to receive your fabric in most cases, and then we need time to carefully construct your items.

What is the difference between cotton and minky?

Our bedding is offered in two fabrics: cotton and minky. Cotton is your traditional bedding choice, whereas minky is a super-soft, low pile fabric (it has a bit of a nap to it).

Minky is always our first choice for baby bedding because it is virtually indestructible and holds up well to messy life with babies. It does not fade and has no fussy washing instructions, which makes it super easy to care for and guarantees that your bedding will be in tip top shape for a lifetime!

Our cotton is soft and smooth, and printed using an eco-friendly process. As such, it is prone to a bit of fading with wash and use. It requires special laundering (phosphate-free detergent, no fabric softener, no spot cleaning) to minimize this fading.

Can I mix cotton and minky bedding?

Our cotton, which is a natural fiber, prints a bit differently than our minky. Because the two fabrics undergo different print processes, products made from each of these fabrics can look a bit different in terms of color and vibrancy.

If you're looking for your items to match exactly, I would suggest sticking to either cotton or minky, keeping in mind that our sherpa blankets can only be made with minky.

If you really want to mix cotton and minky, colors differences tend to be more noticeable in some prints more than others. In my experience, prints that have reds/pinks/oranges tend to be more noticeably different than prints in other color schemes.

If you have any doubts about fabric choice, please consider ordering a swatch.

Care instructions

Our cotton is soft and smooth, and printed using an eco-friendly process. As such, it is prone to a bit of fading with wash and use. It requires special laundering (phosphate-free detergent, no fabric softener or dryer sheets, no spot cleaning) to minimize this fading.

Our minky is soft, vibrant and fade-free. Wash on cold or medium and tumble dry low. Feel free to spot clean--our minky is virtually indestructible and is perfectly suited to life with messy little ones.
