I would like to assure my customers, that I take precautions in producing my products. I am the only one working on my items, and as it turns out, it comes in very handy to be an introvert in these times. I have very minimal contact to people, and make sure washing hands and sanitizing whatever I can is my priority. My prayers go out to everyone and I pray that we will all get through this quickly, and I pray that everyone stays safe!
God Bless! Nini

About NinisHandmades

On Etsy since 2007

Out of great Struggle I received a great Beginning

Nini's Handmades has been around since 2007.
After my husband was let go from his job right before the 2008 economic crisis, I decided to make my hobby a source of income in order to take care of my family, and help my husband out during a stressful season in our lives.
I started on Etsy and to this day I am still here.

I love what I do! I love knitting and sewing and crocheting and I feel blessed to be able to call my hobby my business.
Everything I create is knitted, crocheted, sewn, stitched, by me.
Every single felt patch is handmade/cut from scratch and hand sewn unto each piece.
I strive to create each piece with passion and care for long term use and with heir loom quality.
Ever since I was a little girl, I have learned and loved to knit and crochet.
My knowledge of knitting and creativity comes from my heritage, my birth place Germany, and my parents Home Country Turkey.
My love for bright colors and knitted things come from
my early memory of my Grandma's creative talent.

I would watch her for hours sew on a very old hand turned sewing machine.
She would create these absolutely perfect sheep's wool filled silk quilts, in all colors and display them on one long wall in her living room. The overwhelming array of colors overloaded my senses and ever since then I wanted to create bright and pretty things.
I love and miss her and every piece I create is a memory of my Grandmother.

I believe that everything happens for a reason, and I refuse to believe that all this is my own doing. I am a firm believer, that I know my Lord, My God and my Savior had HIS hands all in it and helped me to push me forward to show me a life beyond that which I had before.

I am very humbled when I think about where I was and where I am now.

I am thankful for God to provide for me in bad days and good days, I am thankful that He is always with me and fills me with creativity which shows up in my designs. Also, besides being so happy about what I am doing, I am in awe about the most wonderful friends I have made on Etsy.

Customers became my long lasting friends. I am a better person today, because I am being surrounded by such wonderful Customers.

Thank you Etsy for all you do.

Welcome to Nini's Handmades.
Come on in and checkout my Wide Variety Of BABY and CHILDREN'S HATS. CUSTOM CREATIONS ARE WELCOME!!! Thank you so much for stopping by, and if you have an questions or requests, feel free to contact me anytime. :)Have a lovely day.

PLEASE ENSURE TO NEVER LEAVE YOUR CHILD ALONE WITH ANY HATS ON, TO ENSURE THAT THE BABY WILL NOT PULL ON POM POMS OR APPLIQUES!!! I always make sure that my sewn items and Pom poms are secure, but you can never be safe enough. :) Thank you so much!!!

POM POM SAFETY AND CARE:
PLEASE SUPERVISE ALL SMALL CHILDREN WHEN WEARING HATS OR OTHER CLOTHING WITH POM POMS. The strings can be pulled out and need therefore SUPERVISION AT ALL TIMES when worn.

ALL POM POMS WILL EVENTUALLY HAVE WEAR AND TEAR and it is IMPORTANT NOT TO PULL OUT THE STRINGS when they are poking out, but need TRIMMING only. That will ensure the longevity of the Pom Pom. If the strings are pulled out it will eventually fall apart.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.
Information I Collect
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized 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. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewelry, for example), if you contact me directly.
Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
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;
• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
• 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.

• 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.
• Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
• 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.

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.

Returns and exchange details
All babies and children are unique and it can happen, that the US standard size knitted hats will fit differently according to childs size. So if you think it's too big or too small, I would absolutely exchange it for another customized hat.

I understand, that it can happen sometimes that maybe some stitches come lose. Even though I try my best to stitch them securely, it can happen that some dotts come lose or unravel. If that is the case with your hat and you have purchased it within 3 months, I will gladly sew them back on for you. :)
