About

Making my dream your reality

In Spring 2015 I was inspired by plush makers on DeviantArt,Etsy and Facebook to start learning how to sew my own plushies. I carefully analyzed over 50 Youtube tutorials (honestly I've lost count!) on hand sewing, bought and downloaded any pattern I could find and broke the bank buying fabrics in all sorts of crazy colours!

However I only gained the courage in late 2017 to try to make my dream of being a full time self employed plush artist a reality. My wonderful partner supports me in this dream and many friends and family have noticed my efforts and passion.

You might ask yourself "what is the big deal about plushies"?
Plushies are always lovely to look at and even at my age sometimes you need something to cuddle that won't fight back. They can be useful as educational toys if you're a teacher or parent for the little ones to examine and learn from, a friend who will always listen and never butt in when you just NEED to vent, a customized and very personal gift for a loved one to cherish for years to come! And mostly recently I've seen plushies used as decorations around the house, work and even in Christmas trees.

So if you want something for Easter, Valentines Day, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Birthdays, Christenings or Baby Showers? Always remember Plushies have been the go-to present for years because who doesn't love stuffed animals filled with love and charm?

Frequently asked questions
Why wasn't I refunded the full amount?

In the event you need a refund you will always be refunded for the items value but unless the circumstances are very special I will not be able to refund shipping.

Gift wrapping and packaging

If you're buying something as a gift for someone let me know if you'd like it in wrapping paper! Your item will be shipped in wrapping paper I have in stock and sent in a patterned mail bag to keep shipping costs as low as possible.

Why hasn't my order arrived by the estimated date?

Please do not pay attention to Etsy's estimation, it is proved to be bugged as I have seen other sellers have estimated dates which would be nigh impossible to meet.

If you're ordering from the UK, 2nd class shipping normally takes 2-3 business days. 1st class is between 1-3 days.

International orders MAY take up to 6 weeks to arrive due to customs and the journey from one country to another. I am not responsible for delayed shipments; I am only responsible for the package never arriving, if it has been more than 6 weeks and there is no sign of your order please contact me first and we will sort something out.

Where is my tracking number for an order?

If you did NOT upgrade your order to International Tracked upon checkout you will not receive a tracking number. I have never had a missing order with this way of shipping.

If you're concerned that your item has not arrived and its been more than 4-6 weeks then please get in touch with me and I'll help you resolve the issue. If it has not been more than the allotted time I can only provide you with proof of postage to help you relax whilst we both wait for your item.

Why don't you send things tracked?

It is around £6 per parcel to send untracked around the globe, somehow mail carriers add on a further 4.50 to send things tracked. This means that it would cost me £10.50 to send your item and I have experimented with this method in the past and decided it was unfair on uk customers because my listings include the shipping so I saw less sales and my business suffering for it.

If you're concerned about me sending things untracked then please opt in for the tracked shipping upgrade upon checkout to reassure yourself on where your item is.
