southernsassypants' Shop Announcement

My lead time* for CUSTOM orders is approximately 2 weeks from the order date. *This time-frame begins after your order is placed, payment is received and ALL of the required information (fabric choices, personalization info, etc.) is received.

★★ PLEASE NOTE: After 8 years of staying open 24 hours a day and accepting as many orders as I received on a daily basis, I have finally come to the conclusion that I'm not super-human (and, life is too short to work 12-15 hours every day), so I have decided to cut back a wee bit...I will now only accept a certain number of orders* every day. Once I reach my max orders for the day, I will close my shop until the following morning. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

*A message sent to me inquiring about an item does not count as an order received. Typically, I only have time to answer messages EARLY in the morning (my alarm usually goes off at 3:00 a.m.!).

Southern Sassy Pants specializes in personalized baby blankets and minky pillowcases.

★ PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE read descriptions before purchasing...sizes* are clearly marked, so pay close attention to the measurements, to ensure that you will get the size you want. The only "neutral" ratings I have ever received are because the customer did not read the description carefully. *If you can't visualize how small or large something might be, simply get out a tape measure, and measure out my specific dimensions, which are given clearly in every single one of my listings. If you don't feel like my prices are reasonable for the size, please do not order from me. I'm really not trying to be mean, just practical. :)

★ IMPORTANT: After your order is placed, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE be sure to log in to your etsy account to check for messages, as I will contact you just as soon as I can to confirm your order (I will not send you a separate e-mail - only a conversation through etsy).
★ Please understand that if any information is missing, your order will not be officially placed on my schedule until I receive all of the required information that is necessary to process your order. If I don't hear back from you in a reasonable amount of time, I am happy to use my telepathic powers to read your mind, and choose the details for you. Ha!
★ Be sure to double check for correct spelling (and punctuation, if applicable). Embroidery will be done exactly as you type it. Ex. If you type in all capital letters, that is how it will be embroidered.
★ SHIPPING: After losing money on numerous packages (especially international shipments - some rates practically doubled!), I have had to raise my shipping prices. Please understand that I do not profit from shipping....I just can't continue to lose money. International : If you are overcharged by more than $2, I will send a refund (via paypal) once the package has been shipped.
★ OUT OF PRINT/LIMITED FABRICS: Prices on items made using certain out-of-print fabrics may be higher than my regular prices. All out-of-print/limited fabrics are clearly marked and the only sizes that are available are the ones listed. I am sorry, but these fabrics are not available for any of my "design your own" blanket listings.

I'm sorry, but I do not carry minky swirl, as it simply doesn't hold up as well as the minky dot. After just a few washings, the "swirlies" became matted, and I am far too much of a perfectionist for that. I just cannot bring my self to do it.......

I pre-wash all of my cotton fabrics to prevent any shrinking once the blanket has been put together. Sewing/design schools teach that once cotton fabrics have been washed and dried, it is perfectly fine to pair them with them with fabrics that have different properties, such as minky. :)

All in-stock items are available to ship immediately, and will be mailed to you within 2 business days.

★ The most common questions can be answered simply by reading the item's description, or in my policies:

★ Please note: In an effort to streamline my shipping process, I am no longer offering gift-wrapping or handwritten messages. I am still happy to include a note card that will say who the gift is from, but it will be a simple "To" and "From" card. Thank you for understanding!

If you would like to include a longer message, you are more than welcome to write out a card and mail it to me...I am happy to include it in the package.

Questions? Many answers can be found here. In placing an order, you are agreeing to all of my policies:

Please feel free to contact me at anytime...I value each and every one of you, and I will return your message just as quickly as I can.
