My 3.5 year old son really wanted a bike bag for his balance bike so he could carry his toys with him on his rides... This bag fit the bill perfectly! The colors were not available, but gigglestuff was able to customize it for me. Great quality! Good looking! And wonderful service. I definitely recommend!

About

Fun. Thoughtfully handmade. Not mass produced.

My story
It all started when my daughter received her first bike: a balance bike. I looked for a basket, but there was nothing available for her tiny bike (and I hate plastic). So I turned to my sewing machine. My friend saw my little bike bag and custom ordered 5 to give as gifts to all her balance bike buddies. I posted some pics on Etsy and the rest is history.

My process
I pre-wash all my fabrics in hot water, and machine dry on the hot setting to clean and shrink everything. I cut everything at night (I’m a bit of a work-a-holic) and sew during the day. As soon as a bike bag is done, I photograph it and make it available almost immediately in my Etsy Store.

My inspiration
I love clean, modern, bright and funky... Call me eclectic.

I also love being outdoors. We live near a river where the salmon spawn each year, and eagles and bears are free to live. My family and I cherish that. I love to make fun things that will get your kids outside so they can enjoy where they live.

My hopes and dreams
To find others who are trying to make a difference in the consumer world. I worry about what condition we will leave this earth if everyone continues to buy mass produced things that will be added to landfill. Please make educated choices when you are going to buy something. Try to reuse and repurpose things, hand things down so others can enjoy it.

My warranty
My toys and bags are made to last, so you can feel good that you are not adding to landfill with something mass produced that will fall apart. I also offer repair on my handmade goods, please send me a message and photo and I’ll try my best to repair it if something happens to it.

I am thankful there are other handmade enthusiasts out there who don’t want mass produced things. Thank you for supporting us creative types and for buying handmade!

Thanks for checking out my goodies! All my bike bags, amigurumis, and patterns are lovingly designed and hand made by me. I welcome feedback or just a 'hello' if you're wandering through my Etsy Store.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
I accept PayPal only as method of payment. Payment via PayPal must be made within 1 day of purchasing on Etsy and within 3 days of Reserved Listing. If a Reserved Listing has not been paid within the 3 days, I reserve the right to sell it in my Etsy Store to anyone else. Thank you.
Shipping
Shipping is from Canada, so allow enough time for the parcel to arrive to you. Bike bags usually take no more than 6 business days (to USA or Canada -- might be more during busy holiday season), up to 6 weeks International via Ground. If you'd like faster delivery, contact me for a quote.

IF YOU WANT CHEAPEST SHIPPING SHOWN, IT HAS NO TRACKING AND IF IT IS LOST OR STOLEN, THERE IS NOTHING I CAN DO -- Sorry.

If you must have guaranteed shipping with tracking number, contact me for a quote. It is approximately $20 to USA or Canada (4 business days). Send me a message that you'd like shipping with tracking number and I will do a custom listing for you. If you do not specify "shipping w tracking number", it will be shipped regular mail and there is no tracking number, no guarantee... If it is lost of stolen, sorry there is NOTHING I can do.

Shipping prices are approximate. I can get you an exact shipping price if you send me your zip code, or postal code. I will refund the difference (if it's over $3) if shipping price was overcharged (also depends on what lining was chosen on custom made bike bags, some are heavier than others).

*** CHRISTMAS SHIPPING DEADLINE:
> custom made item payment made by: Dec 2
> Canada or USA destination 'ready to ship' items: Dec 10
> USA destination Xpress post (4-8 business days): Dec 16, add $ 30.00 (shipping)
> International: has to go via FedEx Dec 21/22 (contact me for a quote) ***
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to love your purchase as much as I loved making it. If you are NOT completely satisfied, contact me within 3 days via Etsy Convo or email. Sorry no refunds unless the product was grossly misrepresented.

** NO REFUNDS ON PATTERNS!! **

If there is damage during shipping or you want to discuss something, please contact me so we can resolve any issues before you leave negative feedback. Again, I value my customers and want your shopping experience with me to be a happy one :-)
Additional policies and FAQs
CUSTOM WORK: I LOVE doing custom work too, so feel free to contact me if you would like a quote for something special.

TURNAROUND TIME: For custom made bike bag: 3-5 business days. For custom amigurumi, please allow 2 weeks turnaround time. Or contact me with a deadline and I will see if I can squeeze it in. Often I can. Depends on the project. Shipping is from Canada, so factor shipping time into your deadline.

DEPOSIT HALF UP FRONT: I also require 50% deposit (non-refundable) -- this covers the cost of materials and labour involved.
