About

Making my Presents Felt

I was born in Liverpool, to 'Scouse' parents, in the same hospital as John Lennon, though many years later - John and I didn't meet! When my parents got married in the late 60s, they bought a new-build house in nearby Warrington as was 'all the rage' with young Liverpudlians and it was here, that my younger brother and I were raised.

My crafting story begins from this early age. Inspired by a very hands-on family; an 'arty' Mum, a DIY-mad Dad and 'crafty' Aunties, since I can remember, I have been trying my hand at sketching, painting, knitting, cross-stitching, sewing, knocking nails into wood... Whether it was making a party hat for my Dad's 46th birthday out of a pair of tights, a 'garden' for ladybirds using berries and leaves (what else?) or a new skirt for my doll from an old one of mine, I was always trying to make something out of something else!

I studied Art and Textiles courses concurrently at secondary school but also had a love of the written and spoken word and it was this that I elected to pursue in my chosen career path as a teacher. I graduated from Liverpool John Moores University with a BEd (HONS) in English Literature and Communications Studies. My 18 years in primary teaching saw me using a variety of art and crafting techniques and I loved sharing my skills with the children (and secretly enjoyed their "WOW" sounds when I demonstrated our latest 'make'.) I also specialised in children's personal and social well-being, which has gone on to inspire products such as my Worry Eaters.

My business began almost accidentally. Just after leaving the teaching profession, I made a felt name banner as a gift for a colleague's son, to match his room. I was asked to make one for someone else...then someone else and before long, people were insisting upon my taking payment and in January 2015, Presents Felt came into being.

Many of my products are inspired by my work with children and I love making something that customers think their children will adore or will help to make their lives easier in some way, however small. I loved using 'themes' in teaching and still do, whether it be jungle, pirate, dinosaur, space, butterflies, flowers, nautical or transport-themed decor items or gifts.

I do believe that gifts speak loudest when they come from the heart and it is heart goes into every piece I make. One of the most rewarding things about my job is the thought that I may have made a stranger smile somewhere in the world...sometimes really far away from my little box room in Warrington!

Frequently asked questions
How do I request a custom order?

For bespoke felt banners, look for the 'Custom Made Felt Banner' listing. For something else, simply click the 'Request A Custom Order' button which enables you to send me a message to explain your requirements. Once arrangements are agreed, I will then prepare a special shop listing for your custom item and Etsy will email you to say that it is ready to purchase. I will begin beavering away on your order after it has been purchased.

When will I get my custom order?

Unless it is a busy period, orders are generally made within 2 weeks then shipped. However, at busy times, with only one set of stitching hands, it can take a little longer. For current estimates, see the shipping section for your chosen item. If you are concerned about meeting a particular deadline, you can of course contact me before placing your order to see if meeting your deadline is possible. You will be kept informed as your order progresses, with picture updates and of course, you will be notified when your order has shipped. After that, it is over to the postal services.

How are shipping costs estimated?

I generally use 1st Class Royal Mail services within the UK, with Signed For or Tracked services for more valuable items. For smaller, lower value items, I use Royal Mail International Standard where possible, for other countries, though delivery estimates are the same, please note that a tracking service is not offered with this option. Above a certain value, the International service cost is greater and a Tracked & Signed For service used, where possible. Some items vary in value and weight (e.g. Name banners), where I have estimated shipping costs using a higher value and weight. If your item costs less to post (e.g. perhaps your name banner is a shorter, more lightweight item), I will of course, issue a partial refund and notify you.

What if my parcel goes to the wrong address?

This would be upsetting for us both, wouldn't it? It is very important to ensure that the address you provide to Etsy (and services such as Paypal) is your current and accurate address as I cannot be held responsible for orders being sent out to the wrong home.

Will my order arrive in time for Christmas?

Please order in plenty of time, especially custom-made items. I create by hand and at busy times, there will be other items in my 'queue'. Check item Shipping Details for current "make" times.
Royal Mail's recommended final postage dates 2018 are estimates, not guarantees:
4th Dec: Africa & Middle East
7th Dec: Cyprus, Asia, Far East, Eastern Europe (exc. Poland, Czech Republic & Slovakia), Malta
8th Dec: Caribbean, Central & South America
10th Dec: Greece, Australia, New Zealand, Turkey

When will my order arrive?

Be sure to check the listing's shipping tab for information on how long your order will take to process (be made) and what shipping times apply. Shipping time estimates are as stated by Royal Mail for services from the U.K. To Europe: Aim 3-5 business days. To the rest of the world: Aim 5-7 business days. It is worth noting that these are Royal Mail's *aims* only and that parcels can occasionally be delayed in getting through individual countries' customs processes. Etsy sellers are not responsible for delays such as these or those caused by postal strikes or inclement weather conditions.

Can my order be gift wrapped?

In holiday season, I offer a gift wrapping service, details of which, including an image can be found beside individual listings. Simply leave a note in the 'Note to Seller' at checkout, detailing your gift message. There is an additional charge for this service.
Greetings cards cannot be wrapped - the wrapping details appear beside all shop listings!
