About

From a hobby to making other people happy

The Softies began in 2013, although I didn't even knew it at the time.

I was pregnant. With a boy. I am very girly and had absolutely no idea to decorate a baby boy's nursery. The only thing I was sure about was the color scheme. So I started to look at nursery themes and bedding sets on the Internet. I found some cute things but they didn't fit together or weren't available in the right colors.

I have always been a crafty person and had a sewing machine that my mother gave me for my 14th birthday that I hadn't used it in a while. I decided it was time to take it out of the closet and put it to good use. I designed a full bedding set, including 2 quilts, a crib bumper, contour sheets, decorative pillows and more.

When my son was about 5 months old, we went to the park for a ball game and there were 2 other moms of young babies. One of them asked me where I had gotten my quilt from and when I told her I had made it, she suggested I should start selling custom ones. The idea had never occurred to me but it made sense to assume I wasn't the only one that couldn't find what I wanted anywhere.

So I started my own small business and soon I was making custom decor accessories for family, friends and friends of friends. I then decided it was time to start helping other people get what they wanted and opened The Softies on Etsy.

Since then, my shop has evolved. I have added more fashion accessories and removed some older designs but one thing that hasn't changed is my passion for what I make !

I hope you have a great shopping experience and enjoy it as much as I do !

Payment
I will not start a custom order or ship a ready-made item before payment is received.

Warning: I reserve the right not to honor and to cancel any order from a user who uses a promo code in an inappropriate way and/or without my consent. Some codes in my shop are exclusive to boutiques, people and events. Thanks for your understanding.
Shipping
All orders will be shipped via Canada Post from Montreal, Quebec. Most small orders are shipped economically without a tracking number. If you wish for a shipping upgrade, you can contact me and I'll look at different options with you.

If you wish to pick up your order, please contact me prior to making a purchase ! I live in Montreal, near metro Beaubien.

Shipping overages over $4 CAD will be refunded to you.
Refunds and Exchanges
Since almost everything in this shop is custom made and due to the fact that I will not be able to resell them, I cannot accept returns.

Non-custom items can be exchanged or refunded if they are returned in mint condition at the customer's expense. Shipping fees are not refundable.

Made-to-order items and custom orders include a 50% deposit that is not refundable. That means that if you cancel a custom order that I have already started working on, you will be refunded 50% of the item price and the full shipping fees.
Additional policies and FAQs
Every item being completely handmade, there might be some variations between products. Also note that, as much as I try to take the best pictures I possibly can, it is possible that there is distortion of proportions and colors depending on your monitor.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Measurements for each item are stated in every listing. Everyone is different so please measure yourself or your child to choose the right size instead of using only the approximate age reference which is provided as a general guideline only.

Care instructions

Care instructions are listed in every item description. Most of my creations are machine washable at delicate setting in cold water. I never recommend putting them in the dryer as the heat will damage the fiber over time but some items can still be tumble dried at low temperature.

Custom and personalized orders

Most of my items can be personalized with another choice of fabric. Please contact me for availability before placing your order.

Custom orders include a 50% deposit that is not refundable. That means that if you cancel a custom order that I have already started working on, you will be refunded 50% of the item price and the full shipping fees.

Gift wrapping and packaging

In an effort to be eco-friendly and to reduce shipping cost, I try to minimize my packaging as much as possible.

Small items are usually shipped in a vacuum-packaging in Canada.

If you would like a gift wrapping or special packaging, please contact me prior to placing your order.

Please note that marking the order as gift at checkout does not mean that I supply extra gift wrapping or that I will mark your order as gift on a customs form. It simply means that the price of the item will not be included to your receipt. Thank you :)

Non slip soles on slippers

Sizes Newborn and 0-6 months will have cotton fabric on the bottom. Every larger size will have a non slip sole (from 6-9 months to adult sizes).

These are made with anti slip flannel based fabric and are meant for interior usage only. Please note that if you have a carpet and your child drag their feet a lot, they might not last as long. Other unusual usages may also damage them.

Shipping time

The time it takes between my shipping your package and your receiving it can greatly vary depending on your location. You can always contact me prior to placing an order if you need your package for a certain date and would like a shipping upgrade.

- Canadian orders take about 1-2 weeks.
- USA orders can take 2 to 4 weeks.
- International orders can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months.
