Everything I sell is handmade by me with high quality and affordable prices in my smoke-free and animal-free studio. You can expect a professional transaction, quick replies to questions and orders are mailed out daily.
I always stock children and adult sized hats and many times I have the product made already, or at least cut out and ready to sew as I make them year round. Sometimes I may need time to make a specific size/design, especially children's sizes or hats with specialty eyes or accessories.

After your order I will only email you an estimated shipping time if it will be more than 2 days that I plan to finish project. Also, I must know about an timing needs that you may have with your order. If you need a rush, get in touch first to be sure I can fulfill your request.

Have a look around and enjoy!

On Etsy since 2008

My inspiration....

I am inspired by all things natural. I absolutely love nature and since I live in the Pacific Northwest, I get to see a lot of amazing nature. I find inspiration on trails, in sunsets, at the parks and National Parks, traveling, and even just daydreaming about places I want to go.

My preferred medium changes throughout the year. I have certain seasons of the year that certain mediums call me. I particularly like to paint and knit and do needle felting more in winter and soap making tends to be more year round.

I am not sewing as much currently as I am working on a collaboration project with my dear friend of 25 years on a soap making adventure and so my art studio has a lot of soap making materials out. My friend Carrie is the mad scientist and I am the designer.

    Owner, Designer

    I have been creating since I can remember. I particularly enjoy designing and painting. I also like to sew, knit, spin, quilt, needle felting, soap making and pretty much anything that involves using my hands and different textures and colors.

Thank you for your consideration in purchasing my products. I am happy to answer any questions that you might have. Thanks for supporting a handmade artisan in the USA.

Accepted payment methods

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
If you are not satisfied with my product, I will exchange and/or refund within two weeks of purchase as long as the product is not damaged or used. Buyer pays return shipping.
Once the item is returned to me, the refund, minus the original shipping charges, will be issued within 2 days after product is returned via PayPal. Returned product must be unworn and in perfect condition.
Payment
I accept Paypal and credit cards. I typically ship within 2-3 days after payment is received. However, it may take up to 10-14 days if supplies need ordering to complete your order. I will always communicate via email or Etsy messaging if the order will take longer than 3 days.
Shipping
Please be sure that your Etsy mailing address is up-to-date before purchasing. If an order is returned due to a wrong address, you will be responsible to send more money to re-ship order. If there is penmanship error on my part, I will resend at my cost along with an apology (this has not happened yet!)

DOMESTIC USA SHIPPING - To keep shipping affordable, I ship via USPO first class with tracking. I do not include the tracking number on each invoice (way too much typing), so if you feel the need to track your package please message me and I will send you the tracking number.
If you would like to rush an order, upgrade to include insurance, and/or priority mail please contact me BEFORE purchasing and I would be happy to make a reserved listing to accommodate your requests.

I am not responsible for any lost or damaged packages, that is completely beyond my control. Protect yourself by requesting an insurance upgrade by messaging me before placing your order, especially international orders. Once the package leaves the US, there is absolutely nothing I can do to help you find it.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING - I ship via USPS first class*. Declaration of package contents and value of contents will be on your customs form. Buyer is responsible for all fees, taxes and duties upon delivery.
If you want to upgrade to international priority mail and/or insurance, please contact me before completing your purchase and I will create a reserved listing.

International First Class mail has no estimated delivery time because of customs delays. Allow up to 3-4 weeks for delivery. Even to Canada! (this really happened once and it arrived safely). I can only mail it properly and hope it gets there in a timely manner.

NO REFUNDS for international packages, lost, stolen, delayed as there is no way to track or confirm anything.

*In the event that your total order exceeds the USPO limits of first class shipping, such as weight, value of contents, etc. I will invoice you the additional shipping charges. Your order will not be shipped until the additional shipping is paid in full. It is the buyers responsibility to be aware of postal restrictions and holidays in their respective countries and allow for extra time if needed.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am always delighted and excited to do custom orders. Many of my favorite hats I designed at the requests of my loyal customers.

WHOLESALE: I do offer wholesale prices on orders over 10 hats. Consider this option for an added experience to your knitting groups, sports teams or family reunions and vacations :)
If you are interested in a wholesale order for your boutique, I am happy to work with you. My hats can be purchased for 50% with a minimum order of 10 hats plus shipping charges. They come complete with professional hang tags. Please message me or email me and I will send you a wholesale order form. When you have your order finalized via email I will prepare you an Etsy listing or Paypal invoice, whichever you are comfortable with.

CONSIGNMENT: If you have a consignment shop, or want to drop ship, I am happy to hear more about your terms. Please get in touch.

GUARANTEES:
I can only guarantee that my product is made with every attention to detail as humanly possible. There may exist defects in the fabric or plastic eyes that I am unaware. If you feel you received a defective product, please let me know as soon as possible and we can talk about an exchange.
The eyes are made of plastic and on occasion the eyes can get damaged; someone may step on it or get banged up by child's play. If this happens to your hat I am happy to replace the eye for you. You will need to cover the shipping charges, and I will repair it for free and return to you. I can also do this if for aging hats that may need a little mending :) When they come back for a mending visit, I feel like we are old friends reunited...........hehehe
