This is probably the best thing i have ever ordered on Etsy - beautifully made. Quality materials and craftsmanship. Playful vibe. My daughter not only wears it but walks around the apartment holding it and kissing it. I don't blame her!

About

Sweet and Supercool Appliqués

I have been drawing all my life. As a child, in school,as a student and later on working as a Landscape Architect. Always.

When we moved to the US from a small Island in the French/English Channel and I had baby no 3 I started staying at home and turning creativity to different things, more practical and 'every day'. In an effort to make my kids' clothes more fun and individual, recycle their old clothes into something useful,use patterns and colors to my hearts content and do something I enjoy, I started drawing and sewing big , bold appliqués ...of things the kids loved -pirates,cupcakes,dogs,horses,monster,sweets,animals,ninja - and on and on. On shirts, bags,pants,hats, pillows...at the kitchen table or on the rocking chair porch (yes, really). ;-)

After making shirts for friends and family for years I finally started venturing into etsy Christmas vacation 2011 , and on a whim my husband and I set up the shop, found a name we loved and I started filling it with goodies. From there on it has been an amazing ride, 'meeting' all sorts of lovely people, sewing every 'free' minute (did I mention the three kids, old, very old house to renovate,kittens to chase, chickens to care for,garden to tend,surfing,hiking,hockey, soccer, and ballet practices to go to - luckily I sew all my shirts BY HAND, yes, really -I have a sewing machine phobia!- so I can take them with me -work on the go!), creating more and more new fun motifs (I LOVE custom orders!) ,growing the shop within our daily life.
In our shop you can find fun and playful, well made clothes (all designs destruction tested on my kids or friends!), that will certainly paint a smile on your kids face - and on yours.

Welcome to piratesandcupcakes!

With two little pirates and a wild cupcake at home I have always been looking for ways to make their clothes and accessories more fun! We love big bold appliques at home and hope you will enjoy them, too!

I LOVE to work on custom orders so if you would like to change fabrics, color schemes or shirt color please let me know and I will do my best to make them work! ;-)
I can incorporate one initial, letter,number, heart with no extra charge on a reasonable basis.(which means whole names for example will be charged extra as it is quite a bit more work! ;-)
And if you have an idea for your kids' favorite hobby,pet,loves and fancies let me know and we can create a shirt together!

From time to time certain fabrics and patterns might not be available anymore, but I will always work as close as possible to the design shown in the listing. In these cases I will contact you before assembly to discuss any changes with you. E.g. I might not have the exact stripe knit for let's say the monster available, but can switch to stripes in another color.
Also not all shirt colors might be available in all sizes, again, I will contact you before assembly to discuss alternative colors.

If you would like a certain design in long rather than short sleeves or vice versa let me know and I will check availability.

I do offer a discount of $ 1.00 per item when ordering multiple items in one transaction.

If you need an order very urgently I will try my best to get it ready for you faster. There is a 'Rush my order' listing available for an additional fee, this also upgrades to Priority shipping.
I would like to ask for patience though in case family life in a household of 5 sometimes throws stones in your path! I will always contact you if I expect delays !
Refunds and Exchanges
Due to the nature of the items for sale (handmade clothing and accessories) I do not allow returns unless it is due to an error on my part. So please check your order before purchasing and ensure that you order the correct size and item. All sales are final. However customer service IS a priority. I want you to be happy with each item that you purchase from me. Each item is inspected thoroughly before shipping. Please contact me within 2 days of receiving your item if there is a problem. I will then address the problem and we will work something out to make sure you are happy with your purchase. *REMEMBER* each item is handmade and designed so they will not be exactly the same (small details can vary, exact placement of applique, minor changes in fabric choices) and this is not considered a reason for dissatisfaction.If I do not have a certain fabric available anymore or can not get the shirt in the color shown in the desired size I will inform you BEFORE assembly to discuss alternative options. In case you are not happy with an alternative I will refund your money BEFORE assembly.
I am confident that you will be happy with your purchase but if you are unsatisfied please let me know and I will happily address your concern.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am more than happy to work with you on custom orders. Color changes, shirt color changes and additional design choices as well as personalization with letters, numbers etc are more than welcome. Please contact me!

Thank you for stopping by!
