Announcement   Welcome to my Etsy shop! I make whimsical items using upcycled materials whenever possible, rescuing old sweaters, clothing, and linens, and re-imagining them into new creations. You'll find a wide variety of materials and themes in my shop, as I cannot restrict myself to one type of craft. All items are hand-made with attention to detail and the love of creating something wonderful. Enjoy!

If you saw me at a craft show and have a piece in mind that you saw, just send me a message about it since I don't have everything posted.

I can gift wrap items! Just ask!

About

Kathryn Bahun (the creative behind Blackbird Pie) has a long history of being a maker. She has simple beginnings watching Mr. Dress-Up and making what he made, making cardboard structures with her dad, learning to sew with her mom, and basically turning things into something special. She began sewing her own clothes in high school, going through periods of learning new crafts but always returning to sewing. These days Kathryn can be found sourcing vintage fabrics and clothing to cut up and turn into new pieces, hand-stitching stuffed toys, doing paper collages with vintage images, and enjoying her work.

"I love the process of creating. I start with a simple sketch, and then head to my stash of new and vintage fabrics to choose what will work best. I love mixing colour, pattern, and texture, so you will find fabrics together that you might not have seen together before, like previously loved sweatshirt fabric and old tweed skirts. Odd mixes that work together in unique pieces"

Shop policies

Last updated on December 14, 2017
Welcome! I love making things that people will love. Part of that process is having clear policies. If anything is not clear, please send me a message and I can answer your questions.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Please send me a message if you have any questions about sizes or colours.

If your lovely new clothing just doesn't fit or suit you, please let me know within 15 business days of the ship date, and we can work out an exchange. (with all shipping costs at the buyer's expense).
Payment
I accept Paypal only.
Immediate payment required please and thank you!
Cancellations are only allowed within 24 hours of purchase date.
Shipping
I ship using Canada Post (generally 5-10 business days in Canada and up to 2 weeks to the United States, but often a week max.). If items are small enough to put through as letter mail, I use this method. Items sent as lettermail have no insurance or confirmation. If you require delivery confirmation, tracking, or signature upon delivery, let me know. This will cost extra, and the customer will pay this, but I can arrange it for you! An order going to another country may take longer if it is delayed at the border. If you need express shipping, please contact me for a quote. The buyer is responsible for paying all duty and customs fees. I will not mark a purchase as a gift. I will refund any over-charge for shipping greater than $1.00 through Paypal.

Items are sent out within 1-3 business days.

If you are buying more than one item from my shop, I may be able to reduce the cost of shipping. Generally though, I find my actual shipping costs are usually a bit higher than what I charge for shipping. Please send me a message when ordering and we'll see what we can do!

I try to re-use shipping items whenever possible to create less waste.
Additional policies and FAQs
I craft in a non-smoking home.
