About WhimsyStitchery

Sales 552
On Etsy since 2011

What Whimsy Stitchery is about.

Hi, my name is Erica and I own Whimsy Stitchery. I opened this shop with the dream of creating fun, new and exciting home and personal fashions. With an eye for color and a mind for whimsy, I create each new item with hope that someone out there will come to adore the my fashion. I hand pick all of my materials, sketch up the designs and take the photos for my shop.

When you buy handmade, you help out your neighbor. You put money in their hands and hope, love and happiness in their hearts. I treat every customer with the same respect I would expect from my friends and family. I would like to thank you for stopping by and seeing what I have to offer.

I opened this shop just a month after my daughter was born. She was and still is my inspiration for this shop.

***I do purchase my blanks at local department stores. The quality is just as good as any other blank. I do this because I can have shirts done faster. If you have any questions or concerns, please message me here on Etsy via the convo system.

*** Please note that I am phasing out my stock of department store brand shirts and now I am carrying BOUTIQUE BRAND SHIRT BLANKS. This is important because the shirt color you see will not be the same shirt color you will receive. The shirt you will receive will be white, but might be a different tint of white. Yes I know that sounds weird, but its true. If you have any questions or concerns, please message me here on Etsy.

I make all of my items in a smoke free pet free room. After I'm done making the items they go into a plastic container for safe keeping. I also package all of my items in there. My two furry knuckle heads don't travel into my work space. . If you have any questions, don't be afraid to convo me.

Please note that colors vary with each monitor settings, but every effort to capture them accurately has been made. Also, lease be aware that these are sample photos of mine. Every effort has been made to recreate these items you see. There might be a time where the thread color is slightly off.
