Hello and welcome! Thanks for checking out Tally's Bestiary. I have a great time putting together all of my pieces, and take time and care to ensure that each one is the best I can make it.

The items in this shop are created when my imagination gets together with whatever random fabric scraps, textures and colours I have on hand. All items are my own designs and patterns. Their individual personalities, however, are their own, and I cannot be held responsible for whether or not they get along with your other pets or family members. Some of them are sweet, some of them are grouchy, and all of them are unique.

Frequently, my work is also a result of projects and experiments done for my blog, where I post a new craft idea and/or tutorial and every week. Some of those projects end up here, in my store. The blog can be found at:


Please keep in mind when looking at photos of my work that colours may vary on different computer screens. I try to take my photos using natural light, for the most accurate possible images.

All of my items are made in a smoke-free environment.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
TallysBestiary cannot be held responsible for items once they are in the mail; please be aware that in this imperfect world, mail is occasionally lost or mishandled.

I try very hard never to make mistakes, but I am, of course, only human; should there be any error with your order, please email or convo me so I can rectify the situation.
I accept Paypal, e-cheques and good old-fashioned paper cheques. If you are using Paypal, payment is required at the time of purchase. If payment is not received within 24 hours, I will send a friendly reminder email. If payment is still not received within 72 hours of purchase, I may have to cancel the order.

If you are paying by cheque (or e-cheque), your purchase will be shipped as soon as the cheque is received and has cleared.
As stated in my profile, I believe in using as many of the materials on hand as possible, as well as reusing and recycling objects. Depending on the size and shape of your purchase, it may be shipped to you in a repurposed (but always clean) box. 

Canada Post's shipping rates can be surprisingly high, especially on bulky objects. All of my listed shipping rates are for Canada Post air mail. Sometimes there are lower rates available for surface mail (which takes longer), and if you would like to take advantage of these please feel free to email or convo me.

Please be aware that international and US orders may have customs charges applied, depending on regulations in your country. 

Orders will be shipped within 3 business days of the time your payment is confirmed. Typically, items should arrive in 5 to 7 business days within Canada, in 7 to 10 business days in the United States, and in 2 to 3 weeks for other international orders. These are estimates only, not guarantees, and delivery times may vary. During Christmas and other major holidays, I recommend ordering at least a week or two earlier than usual to ensure the timely arrival of your purchase.
