Announcement    Whimsy Wendy is all about making personalized special things just for you!

Whimsy Wendy specializes in affordable and well constructed sewn products, all created with craftsmanship and a commitment to responsible design and manufacturing. I focus mainly on personalized embroidered products for the conscientious yet fun-loving consumer.

Whimsy Wendy has been on Etsy since 2007, participates in numerous local markets and was featured in BRIDE magazine, highlighting a number of products in 2015. All products are custom and made as they are ordered, just for you in a sewing studio overlooking downtown Minneapolis.

A WORD ABOUT SUSTAINABILITY:

I, like most consumers, am passionate about knowing whether my clothes and accessories have been made with fair wages and environmentally safe working conditions.

Whimsy Wendy is dedicated to both social and environmental good by making products from up-cycled, re-purposed and reused materials whenever possible.

By reusing materials, I have the opportunity to be ethically creative in my approach to developing products. Most clothing on the market today is manufactured at a high environmental cost. By finding new uses for material, we can take a little more pressure off of the earth.

Here's a sample of some of my materials and how they are sourced:

Cowhide and leather:
Sustainable and readily available material from the over 25 billion pounds of beef that is consumed in the U.S.A. every year. Recyclable...I use leather and cowhide scraps for the majority of my products. Cleans best with green cleaning (water and gentle detergent or deodorized with baking soda).

Packaging:
Whenever possible, products are shipped in recycled brown paper. (Currently searching for a more sustainable adhesive tape). Re-purposed fabric and recycled twine are used in product packaging.

THE WHIMSY WENDY PHILOSOPHY:

Shipping is free for all domestic stateside US orders.

I ship items all around the world and very quickly... you shouldn't have to wait for things you love.*

You will receive a full refund on purchased items within seven days if you are not pleased... (but you'll be pleased).

About whimsywendy

On Etsy since 2007

Whimsy Wendy

Whimsy Wendy was created out of a creative itch in 2007 that came to me by way of my maternal grandmother. She could cook, bake, sew, embroider, crochet and knit with perfection learned from necessity of life.

Whimsy Wendy began in a windowless and cramped laundry room over ten years ago. My two girls were both attending school full time and I wanted to do something with my hands. I started creating children's costumes and soon expanded into other homemade imagination-stimulating products for kids. Shortly after, a wise mentor pointed me in the direction of Etsy. I've been a member since 2007.

My studio now has three large windows, overlooking a pond in stand of pines. I get such a thrill when my products are sent around the world. I often wish that i would have kept count of how many tutus, capes, princess hats and crowns I have made and sold over the years and where they were shipped to.
