Who knew?!

One day my daughter gave me her baby girl's receiving blanket and asked me if I could make something special out of it. From that simple request, the blanket bunnies were born! (It was close to Easter, so a bunny seemed appropriate). Other animals have been added to the inventory over the years.... bears, elephants, hippos, kitties, puppies and whales!

I know how hard it can be to put your baby's blanket in the mail! I treat each and every blanket that is sent to me like the treasure that it is and send the finished toy back to its forever home via USPS priority mail with tracking. There is almost always a bit of blanket that is not needed for the toy. I finish the edges, and the toy is swaddled in the leftover fabric for its journey home.

Want a blanket that looks like the one your hospital had - you can find most of them on amazon! Flannel blankets (most people get a few at the baby shower), work well for the plush toys, too. What doesn't work? Hand-knit or crocheted, muslin and stretchy blankets. Those blanket fabrics will not hold their shape as a toy. Check out my Etsy listings for more details.

If you want a receiving blanket toy - this is the place - the home of the original blanket toy!

Returns and exchange details
Flannel receiving blanket toy orders are final. A completed toy is not returnable and numsie's is not responsible for poor quality due to poor quality of blanket provided. There is a wide variety of qualities of fabrics of the hospital receiving blankets.

If you have any questions or queries, do please ask me before you purchase. As with all handmade items, there can be variations.

For items other than the receiving blanket toys: Masks are personal use items, so are not returnable. Other Items must be postmarked for return within 2 weeks of receipt, in its original condition and unused. Please also note return shipping is the customer’s responsibility and the initial shipping cost is not refundable.

Custom orders are not returnable or refundable, but custom orders are only filled after the order has been discussed in Esty convos.
At Numsie's you can check out using PayPal, directly with a credit card, or spend an Etsy gift card.
Within 1 to 4 weeks of receiving your blanket, receiving blanket toys are mailed via Priority Mail which generally arrives in two to three days, but they are not 'guaranteed' to arrive in those time frames by USPS. Tracking information will be provided once the item has shipped.
Masks are shipped USPS first class mail. A tracking number is provided.
I ship only to US addresses.
Additional policies and FAQs
Flannel receiving blankets should be shipped to me asap after you have placed an order. However, I realize that a lot of the purchases are made as baby shower gifts, so the certificate can be redeemed for the plush toy for up to one year from the purchase date. After one year, the certificate is no longer valid.
