About

Happiness is Homemade

I started sewing several years ago for my home church's yearly bazaar. Christmas, birthday, and baby shower gifts quickly became homemade! My sewing quickly turned to stuffed elephants when a friend requested one and it blew up from there. I started making memory bears for a church friend and now memory elephants after a request! I love making all kinds of animals so please don't hesitate to ask for something custom. Each custom animal is as special as your best memory!

Frequently asked questions
Do you send extra fabric back with the finished product?

Yes! I understand the importance of your clothing and material. I have no need for it once your memory animal is complete.

Can you use the buttons from the garment as eyes?

Yes, if you prefer buttons over the safety eyes I normally use I will use them. I don't recommend the buttons if the animal is a baby gift. I reinforce my safety eyes with interfacing for more stability.

Custom and personalized orders

Custom order turn around times vary. I try my best to keep it within 6-8 weeks but it depends on how many memory animals you order. Larger orders and those with embroidery may take me more time. Please ask if you have questions on turn around time.

I thank you for your patience with my process. I work a full time job as well as run my Etsy shop.

Shipping Clothing

Once you place an order for your memory or keepsake animal you will receive a email confirmation with my address to ship your clothing to. Please launder clothing before shipping.

Can all clothing items be used?

No, I cannot use items that are hand knitted or crocheted, silk, heavy denim, wool, or see through garments.
