What are the products made of?


Most felting is done using New Zealand or Austrailian sheep wool.

Some critters are made with a core of styrofoam, and may have an armature created with wire or other materials.

Details vary, and may include materials such as cotton threads, waxed thread, wire, yarn, synthetic "fur", feathers, plastics, metals, glass, paper, and various paints and dyes.

Catnip infused products utilize natural dried catnip, and steam-distilled catnip oil.

BUYER ACCEPTS RESPONSIBILITY TO INSURE SAFE USE OF PRODUCTS.

PRODUCTS MADE FOR CAT PLAY ARE SAFE UNDER SUPERVISION, BUT WE DO NOT ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR DAMAGES DUE TO UNSUPERVISED PLAY, ALLERGIC REACTION, OR OTHER ADVERSE EFFECTS.

ALL OTHER PRODUCTS (CRITTERS, COMMISIONED WORK, SOAPS, SCRUBBIES, ETC) ARE NOT TOYS, AND ARE NOT INTENDED FOR CHILDREN OR ANIMALS.




Do you make them yourself?


Yes!

All products are handmade (and I have the bandages to prove it!)

Some products may have a "core" or base if material(s) that is used to begin the form, but the creation of the final product is completely hand-done.




Why can't you make my kitty/dog/bird/armadillo?


I try to capture the essence of a creature... I don't do realistic portraits or recreations of animals. There are some incredibly taleneted people out there who can do that with great artistry, and I encourage you to look for them if you are seeking a realistic reproduction of your beloved pet.

I do what I like to call "interpretive felting", which meanss that I try to capture the "feeling" of the animal. My goal is almost always to make you smile when you see the finsihed product.

If I don't accept your request, it is because I honestly don't think I can do it justice. I want to give everyone the best possible creation I can, and there are times when I just have to say "I'm sorry, I can't do it". It's not because I don't WANT to make it. It's because I don't want to disappoint you! And if I truyly believe that I can't honor what you want, I will reluctantly have to turn down the opportunity to make something special for you.




Why do your things cost so much?


I try to price my items fairly.

I have to factor in the cost of the materials, plus the time it takes to make them.

I also offer free shipping on most items.

AND, I make a donation to a charity for all items sold.

So in order to either break even or make a small profit, I have to price the items accordingly.

I apprecaitae your understanding, and am genuinely grateful for your support.
