Welcome to Crafty Tortoise. I am glad to share my passion with you. I have crocheted for about 10 years now. I tend to be a perfectionist so you know you are getting quality when you buy from my shop. I love to crochet, but my creations tend to pile up. I am very happy to share them with you and let you enjoy them as much as I do. I aim only to make you the buyer happy, so I tend to be very easy to work with.
Thank you again for shopping at The Crafty Tortoise.

Additional policies and FAQs
Why don't you accept custom orders?
-Unfortunately I am unable to take custom orders. I am trying to go back to school and just do not have the time necessary to make custom designs.

What if I don't see what I want?
-Let me know. Sometimes I have an extra in inventory.

I don't see my size?
-Some styles are not made in larger sizes. I am very sorry, but I have to limit my sizes to just 0-3 months and 3-6 months. Most of my items are purely for photographic purposes.

I saw something I liked in your SOLD category, where can I buy it?
-I am so sorry, but unfortunately the item you are looking for was sold. I sometimes have duplicates in my shop, so check there first, but unfortunately some items are only around for a limited time.

Do you sell wholesale, bulk or consignment?
-No, I just cannot keep up to be able to offer these types at this time. You are welcome to contact me though. thecraftytortoise [!at]
