From sewing to illustration

I began my shop when a friend encouraged me to take my handmade felt christmas decorations to a local craft market. There were snowmen, puddings and some adorable little reindeer to name just a few. I loved every minute of it and I opened my Etsy shop a few months later with felt brooches and decorations.

As I made more designs, I got more ambitious and, after following lots of other amazing indie shops, wanted to break into the pin and patch scene. At first, I designed hand painted sew on patches that were a great way for me to dip my toe in the water of patch designing. Fabric painting allowed me the freedom to create designs that just wouldn't translate into felt and thread.

As I got more confident drawing and painting, I needed to teach myself how to design digitally. It has been a slow process, but I'm finally at a place where I can design amazing products such as enamel pins, embroidered patches, cards and more! The possibilities are endless and that really excites me!

When I made that first felt decoration, I had no idea that this is where I would end up. Being an illustrator kind of happened by accident, but it is bringing me so much joy to create products that make you do a silly smile.

Additional policies and FAQs
If you'd like to discuss custom orders or collaborations, please do! I also love to stock in shops, so if you have one, let me know and we'll sort something out!
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. Although I currently do not have any customisable listings, I may in the future, therefore, you might also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order for example), if you contact me directly.

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 fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
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 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.
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.

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 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.

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 my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests. 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.

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Kate Smith, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at heyhey [!at] heyheyginger.com

Frequently asked questions
Could you design a one off patch?

As I use an external manufacturer, I have minimum order quantities to comply with, therefore I cannot create one off patches.
