Sox & Patches lovingly makes all monsters and other crafts by hand. Quilted items will have washing instructions included when shipped. Monsters on the other hand are made from several fabrics including socks, silk ties, cotton, wool, denim and also will have embellishments of beads, buttons, embroidery floss.....and are NOT washable, but can be spot cleaned if necessary. Monsters are NOT RECOMMENDED FOR CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 5 because of their hand sewn qualities and embellishments, which could pose a choking hazard. Monsters are works of textile art, and cannot take the stress being handled too roughly. Monsters are individuals with the right and need to be loved gently, just like you. They will be your happy companion for years to come, if they are looked after properly. If treated poorly they will hide under your bed and nip at your ankles.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
I will do everything in my power to make certain you are happy with your purchase. I am genuinely appreciative that your purchase supports the hand made market, and allows me as an artist to create with passion.

All fabric, socks and recycled materials are washed by me before I start creating. My items come from a non-smoking environment. There is a curious border collie around, but for the most part he does not help me during the creative process! He will, however, stealthily remove socks from my stash when he thinks I am not looking & pile them up on his dog bed. Therefore some socks get washed several times before they get on the cutting table. Especially the red ones, his favourites.
Payment must be received within 48 hours of a request to purchase. I will upon request, RESERVE a listing for 2 weeks on a specific item that you may fall in love with :)
Please contact me for shipping charges - it will depend on where it is going and how big the box is!

*I ship from Canada, and sadly Canada Post is considerably more expensive than USPS and for protection I will insure all packages. I will happily refund to you any postage that is under my estimation shown on each item.

*International Buyers:
If you require tracking and insurance on items, shipping costs overseas may be higher. Please convo me and I will find out exactly what shipping and insurance costs will be to your destination.

***PLEASE NOTE: Buyers are responsible for any taxes or duties that might be charged by their home country.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you are intending to give your monster as a gift to someone special, I do offer to send the monster a postcard addressed to him,the monster, at his new home from his friends at no charge. Please convo me with details of the new owner's name, address, and some little tidbit about them that I can include in the postcard (do they play the piano, collect coins, are a Star Trek fan, afraid of spiders, like hot peppers.......)
