Announcement   SEWN party decor, room decor and dress up products, made to last...my quality is in my stitching. My products are all made by MY hand, never bought to be re-sold.

***** ANNOUNCING the opening of WOODSY WENDY on Etsy, an extension of Whimsy Wendy. WOODSY WENDY features cabin to cottage decor and personalized products for beach or lake properties.****************

All purchases are custom and made as they are ordered, just for you.

Whimsy Wendy offers free gift wrap. And if you are sending someone something special directly, I can even tuck in a special note..... just let me know your special requests upon check out.

THE WHIMSY WENDY PHILOSOPHY:

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

All items will come gift wrapped because special things should arrive like little treasures.

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 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

My Beginning

Whimsy Wendy was created out of a creative itch in 2007 that had been spread to me by may 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 seven years ago. My two girls were both attending school full time and I started creating tutu skirts 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, a gorgeous view and updated equipment. 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. I look forward to celebrating my 10 year anniversary shortly and hope you will join me for the ride.

    Whimsy Wendy is based on the premise of good, old fashion imagination. I create costumes, gifts, and whimsical party favors that stimulate creative thinking. Colors and textures play a big roll; especially tulle which has a peek-a-boo nature.
