Announcement   Whimsy Wendy is all about making personalized dishtowels, pillows, home decor, patterns, sewing kits and embroidery.

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 in a stand of pine trees overlooking a pond, just outside of Minneapolis.

THE WHIMSY WENDY PHILOSOPHY:

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).
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A NOTE TO TUTU, TUTU PATTERN AND KIT BUYERS:

For specific Tutu sizing, please refer to my sizing chart under my shop policies.

All of my tutus are stitched together... NOT knotted like many other versions you'll find. This ensures durability and quality. Additionally, on most of my tutu edges, I sew a trim of coordinating ribbon for a beautiful finished look. It takes over an hour to complete each tutu, but I think they are worth it!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
**My tutu fabric is manufactured in the USA. This is very important to note, because my tulle is nylon, not polyester. Because it is manufactured in the USA, it has to pass very stringent quality tests and the federal government recognizes this nylon as being inherently flame retardant. Polyester tulle is sometimes treated to make it flame retardant, BUT the chemical used may be a carcinogen, and potentially more harmful than the flame itself.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
*My shipping costs for all stateside orders are set at USPS Priority Mail costs. International orders are for Standard shipping. If you prefer to have me use a different service, particularly for International, (faster or less expensive) just ask!

About

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.
