This handmade back is beautiful, sturdy, and was custom-made specifically for my needs. I needed this bag for a festival and I got compliments on it all weekend! The Painted Daisy is the kindest, most accommodating shop I've ever contacted on Etsy. I would definitely recommend getting yourself one of these beautiful bags. You will not be disappointed! Other item to note: I carried around several heavier items in my bag all weekend at the festival and they were super secure. This bag is extremely well-made and can definitely hold tons of stuff! It's not something chintzy you'd get from a chain retailer. I couldn't be more pleased!

Your story in one sentence.

Welcome to The Painted Daisy!

I’m Jenny and I created this business in 2008 after realizing that my career as a human resources professional was not offering enough life balance. I had been sewing for recreation and extra income since I was in my teens, but never considered it as a full-time occupation. With the support of my spouse and kids I decided to do a 180 in my career, ditch the suits & heels and park myself in front of my sewing machine full-time!

I love sewing, textiles and vintage anything, so I combined those loves into this venture and starting creating clothing and accessories that are fun, different, whimsical, affordable and eco-friendly. I try to keep my “new” fabric purchases to 25% or less of the materials I use each year.

When I start to feel stir crazy locked in my home sewing studio I break free and spend time sewing for a local upholsterer. Making furniture is a whole different creative outlet that I love!

I can’t thank my family and friends enough for all your support! Many are featured in my listings - the beautiful real-life models that I admire in my life.

Payment is due upon purchase. I accept credit card purchase via Etsy checkout, as well as paypal, which allows you to purchase via bank account debit, paypal balance or credit card on file.
I usually ship USPS. I retain the right to ship Priority, First Class or Parcel Post depending on the cost situation. If you have a preference and want to pay to expedite shipping, please let me know upon purchase. I refund ALL shipping overages of $1.00 or more.

I often share the shipping expense with my customers (which means if I screwed up the amount I listed I eat the difference); therefore, I retain the right to choose the shipping method, unless the customer would like to pay the entire cost.

I don't require shipping insurance, but customers may request that option and I would be happy to add it on at their expense. If I ship Priority, tracking and shipping insurance of up to $50 is automatically included.

I am trying to live an eco-conscious and earth friendly life. Therefore, I try to recycle shipping boxes whenever possible and I don't use any extra tissue paper or packaging such as zip top plastic bags unless absolutely necessary. If my product is not machine washable I will always protect it with plastic inside the package. Also, if your package will be exposed to the elements please let me know and I will take extra precautions to protect it. Thanks for your understanding!

Custom orders or modified orders are not returnable unless discussed in advance. This DOES NOT include minor hemline changes of my Frances Skirts and Jersey Skirts, OR minor arm length changes to sweaters. See my refund policy for more information.
Refunds and Exchanges
I am very flexible. If something doesn't meet your expectations or doesn't fit, please convo me so we can work out a solution that is mutually agreeable. I don't want an unhappy customer!

I will not accept returns on items that have been worn or washed.

Also, please note - I will not accept returns of custom items or modified items without prior discussion (before purchase). If you ask me to make something to your particular measurements, or make a considerable change to an in-stock item I may not be able sell it if you change your mind. This DOES NOT include small hemline changes to Frances Skirts or Jersey Skirts, OR minor arm length changes to sweaters.

Note: I do not refund shipping charges as part of a return.

Thanks for your understanding!!
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders are always welcome. Turnaround time can vary from order to order, and I will always try to let customers know the timing up front.

Consignment is available on several of my products. Please convo or email me at thepainteddaisy72 [!at] for more information.

My shop is smoke-free. I have two dogs that share my home, They are not welcome in my sewing studio and I do my best not to pass on any of their lovely furry bits when packing/shipping purchases!

If you have a serious pet dander allergy, please let me know in advance and I will run your item through the dryer (on fluff) to make sure every possible bit of pet fuzzy is removed prior to shipping. This is the best I can do. If you have more concerns either convo me in advance or do not make a purchase.
