All my plushes are original designs and sold online via Etsy with one exception: My Original Chubby Blushing Whales and CloudJellies. They can be found exclusively at the Vancouver Aquarium, where 100% of the proceeds generated is donated to the Marine Mammal Rescue Centre to help give rescued marine mammals a second chance at life.

About

Is it 'Crochet' or 'Croochet'?

Coming up with a shop name probably took more time for me than it took to learn crochet.

Like a lot of sellers, I had wanted a cute-sy name that reflected my work. However, all the names that I came up with was irrelevant to what I do. Finally, the name "Croochet" was suggested. At first, I brushed it off...thinking it was too unoriginal and just wayyyy too obvious. But as time goes by (and I was selling items without a name nor a shop) I gave "Croochet" more and more consideration.

What really struck me while I going through this naming struggle was that a lot of people actually pronounced "crochet" as "croo-chet"! It was especially cute when I hear children saying it. :3

My vision for Croochet is simple: to bring happiness to others while being able to give back to my community. Other than fulfilling your orders, I also regularly donate batches of my chubby blushing whale keychains to the Vancouver Aquarium in order to generate funding for the Vancouver Marine Mammal Rescue. 100% of each whale keychain sold goes towards the rescue. I truly believe this is the right thing to do and, therefore, is a high priority for me.

All my plushes are ORIGINAL and EXCLUSIVE to Croochet. Every item listed is 100% handmade and designed by me. An extensive amount of time is spent on research to ensure each each design is as unique as can be. Of all my plushes, my Chubby Stingray is a brand-new design that has never surfaced the crochet community...which is pretty exciting!

I sincerely hope you will find what you will need in Croochet and thank you for dropping by ♥

Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
I strive to ensure all items sent out have been carefully inspected, and are in their best condition before they are mailed out. In the unfortunate event that the item is damaged upon arrival---or you are dissatisfied with your plush friend, please contact me WITHIN 24 HOURS with photos of concern. I do keep detailed photos of all shipped out orders to allow comparisons to be made should concerns arise. Shipping costs are non-refundable.

- Changed your mind? Thats okay! -
You have 24 hours to think about it starting from the moment you made your purchase! Refunds are granted strictly within 24 hours of purchase. After that, I would have started on at least a part of your plush, therefore, no refund can be made.

All custom orders are final sales.

All my items are carefully created meticulously using high quality materials, are handled with utmost care, and sent out after a careful inspection for defects. However, it cannot be guaranteed that products will last beyond normal usage.
Payment
At the moment, payments via paypal and all major credit or debit cards are accepted
Shipping
Unless another alternative can be found, all orders are sent out via Canada Post. Shipping costs were estimated to the best of our ability! In the event where there is a significant difference in shipping charges, you will be notified ASAP.

- Canada-
For your convenience, all orders within Canada include tracking.

-USA and International-
To keep costs low and reasonable, orders are sent WITHOUT TRACKING. If you would like to add tracking to your order, please message me. Keep in mind that the further an item has to travel from Vancouver, the higher such fee would be (For piece of mind, I strongly encourage tracking for multiple-item orders). Otherwise, after an item has been sent out without tracking, I cannot responsible for any lost items.

To minimise shipping costs, all efforts will be made to ensure multiple items are packed together. Large orders may result in the need of a larger box (due to volume and weight). You will be notified if additional shipping charges are needed.

For locals (in Vancouver, B.C), pick-ups/deliveries can be arranged AFTER products have been paid for via Etsy. There is no negotiation for in-person payments. Please contact me via etsy convo or at croochetshop [!at] gmail.com if you would like to set this up! A small fee will apply and this depends on the location of our meet up.

PLEASE ENSURE YOUR "DISPATCH ADDRESS" IS THE ADDRESS YOU WOULD LIKE ME TO SEND ITEMS TO! I will send you an e-mail to confirm your mailing address once your order has been received. PLEASE RESPOND TO IT! Otherwise, I am not responsible for any lost items shipped to an undesired address

Although this rarely happens:
In cases where packages are delayed by customs, please keep in mind that this is unfortunately beyond my control. In this case, delivery time will be prolonged. Customers are responsible for all custom fees and taxes.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note that each item is individually handmade after an order is placed. I do not create large amount of stock to allow small customisation (if desired) by the customer. For this reason, each item may be slightly different than shown in photos. (Customised orders are final sales)

All photos are taken under natural lighting in effort to reflect each product's actual colour.

Light gift wrapping is included. If special instructions are required, please feel free to contact me and I will try my best to tailor to your needs. Additional costs may be applied.

Depending on the intricacy of the product, all items will be shipped out within 4-6 weeks that order has been received. You will be notified if additional time is required in the occurrence of unforeseen events.

[CLOSED CURRENTLY] Due to the sheer amount of time it takes to produce each plush, I am unable to accept wholesale requests. Thank you for thinking about me though! :)

Need your order faster? Expedited orders also available for an additional fee. Choosing this option means your queue in the production process will be bumped to the first** in line.

**This may vary depending on how many customers opt in for expedited orders*

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

Apologies, I currently do not accept wholesales

Custom and personalised orders

Unfortunately, I do not currently accept custom orders. However, if you only request a slight color change on an existing plush that I offer, please message me!

I try my best to indicate the size of each finished item in my listing. However, due to the handmade nature of my plushes, slight variations is normal and should be expected

Giving Back

Most of my Instagram followers know that I regularly donate my Chubby Blushing Whales to the Vancouver Aquarium to fundraise for my local Marine Mammal Rescue Center (MMRC)! This has been a commitment I promised myself to keep ever since I started my shop. 100% of the proceeds generated from such donations go towards the MMRC to support rescue missions, food and medication purhases and rehabilitation for future release. By purchasing any plush from my shop, you are contributing to this meaningful cause! Since 2015, we have donated more than $3800 for the MMRC---WOOHOOOO!!!!!

Are patterns refundable?

Patterns are final sales and non-refundable.
