Very happy and great service from this shop!
handmadesource small home based business that endeavours to supply good quality haberdashery and hard to find toy making items.
I am a toy maker and love to sew myself, and hope that you find my supplies well suited to your own creative pursuits. I love to see other people creating new items and know that by sourcing lovely and sometimes hard to find supplies I am contributing to the global hand made, home made industry.
I spent 2 years living in Beijing and during that time made some amazing local friends and contacts. I found many of my items in tucked away stalls in fabric markets all over Beijing, Hong Kong and Shanghai.
Happy Making, hh
Around the web
I love making (designing and sewing toys is my thing) and I believe that accessing new and good supplies at decent prices will help keep crafting skills alive.
I aim to be able to bring you a detailed assortment of items that will enhance your sewing and crafts. Toy making and bag making are my personal sewing passions but I also just love buttons, fabric, ribbon and trims.
I take all my own photographs so you can see that the stock is genuine and great quality. I wouldn't sell anything I didn't personally like myself.
Thanks and Enjoy.

I use Australia Post standard delivery. NO Tracking.
INTERNATIONAL ORDERS ARE WELCOME and are no problem to most parts of the globe.
AUSTRALIA - 4 to 8 days - if you are in remote areas it may be a few days longer.
INTERNATIONAL - can be as quick as 5 days to about 2 1/2 weeks.
Orders are sent Air Mail standard rate. This has no Tracking.
Express Post and tracking and can be organised but will cost more, (a lot more!).
If you are after a few items in my store PLEASE convo me to discuss the best options for postage. A few small items are often best sent separately as small letters but larger orders may work better as a parcel.
Whenever I can I will do a bit of "creative packing" to keep you items to the minimal postage possible, it might not arrive super pretty but it will be the best postage rate!
Because my items are so varied it is very difficult to estimate a cost for more than one item. However if you are charged too much for postage I will always refund the excess back into your account once your parcel has been sent.
I am a crafter too and DO NOT believe in profit from postage!
PLEASE ENSURE YOUR ADDRESS IS CORRECT - US this means all the digits in your zip code or items will invariably be sent back to me.
PLEASE - check the address on the order when you place it. My business is small and I cannot replace or refund if your order comes to me with the incorrect address on it. I can only send to the address I receive on the order form.
CHECK YOUR ADDRESS on Etsy before placing an order.

Sometimes I need to charge a little more for packing depending on items and amount of items but I try and keep this as nominal as possible.
*Please note: due to difficulties in the past I will no longer ship to Africa or South America unless by prior arrangement as it is just too disappointing for both of us if there are difficulties getting your order to you.
I love my business and will try and do whatever I can to make sure your 'handmadesource' experience is a good one. If you have any queries feel free to convo me and check my feedback, you'll see my previous customers are very happy!
