About

Woodland Wonder

Many years back I made some plush woodland animals as a baby shower gift for a friend. It was my first experience working with hand embroidery on felt and I remember being so surprised and delighted by how fluid and comfortable the process was.

Fast forward to the fall of 2010. After some success with my first Etsy shop selling paper craft printables, I decided to try my hand at developing patterns for hand sewn felt plushies. Animals of the woodland forest were the natural first subjects. After re-educating myself on some basic decorative embroidery stitches, Little Softie Shoppe (originally "Little Hibou Shoppe") was soon born.

The dream behind this shop and its sister store, Little Llama Shoppe, is like the one held by so many artists and creatives on Etsy -- to make a living doing something you love. To fill each day with happy tasks, positive people, and a sense of self-direction and pride.

My goal is to provide quality, value, and a touch of whimsy in the products available in this store, with timely and responsive service. I hope you find this reflected in your experience with Little Softie Shoppe.

Shop members

  • Tina Douville

    Owner

    I own and operate this shop with the somewhat inconsistent assistance of Buttons the Cat. The verbs that get my juices going are "create", "invent", "design", and "organize". The words "cook" and "clean" tend to have the opposite effect on me.

  • Buttons the Cat

    CFO

    Buttons the Cat greatly enjoys his role as Chief Fuzzy Officer at Little Softie Shoppe. On most days he can be found in the office curled up in a basket, contentedly sleeping next to a heat source.

This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

INFORMATION COLLECTED

To fulfil your order, you must provide certain information (which you authorized Etsy to forward to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering.

WHY I NEED YOUR INFORMATION AND HOW IT'S USED

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 SHARING AND DISCLOSURE

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.
• Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
• 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.

DATA RETENTION

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 generally keep your data for the following time period: 6 years from the end of the taxation year (calendar year) in which your purchase was made, as per Canadian tax law.

YOUR RIGHTS

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. If no exceptional circumstances exist (such as where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
• Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. 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.

HOW TO CONTACT ME

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Tina Douville, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at littlestuff.me [!at] gmail.com.

Can I sell my finished products?

Absolutely! You may sell online or otherwise any personally-made finished products.

• Pattern credit is appreciated but not required.
• Mass production is not permitted.

Sizing details

All sizes are listed in the product descriptions. There is also a picture in each of the listings that shows the finished size of the pattern in relation to a 12-inch (30 cm) ruler.

Can I share this pattern with a friend?

Purchases of my patterns are for your personal use only, or you may give the pattern as a gift, but you cannot purchase for yourself AND share with someone else. The only exception is when you are using them for instruction in a non-commercial children's classroom setting.
