Store Policies

Welcome to my Li'l Birdie Shop, I am so pleased that you have visited my store. I hand make all items to order with love and attention to detail. I use my own designs that I cut myself, this gives me the flexibility to customize your order as much as you would like. Please feel free to ask if you see something you like but would prefer a different colour, shirt style, fabric etc. I am happy to help.

Please note that if you are a guest purchaser and have not created an account you will need to message me at thompson_jacquie@hotmail.com for any queries regarding shipping and custom detailing.

Australian customers need to allow between 5 - 10 business days for standard Auspost delivery. Each listing includes an option for Express Post to purchase. Express Post from Cairns within Queensland takes 2 days, from Cairns to all other states please allow 3 - 6 days. Please bear in mind that I still need to get to your order in the queue so if you are in a hurry make sure you let me know the date you need the items by so that I can work towards this for you.

If you feel that the shipping rate calculated at checkout is wrong please contact me. Whether your order is sent as a parcel or the less expensive letter rate depends upon the combination of items you purchase.

I ship to the address specified on the Madeit invoice so please double check that it is correct, Please contact me if you need your item shipped elsewhere, or if it is for a gift then let me know in the messages at checkout where you would like the package shipped and any note that you would like included.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Please wash gently! Hand wash or use a wash bag on a gentle cycle. The appliques can be ironed flat after drying and although the larger parts of the appliques are sewn on as well as fabric bonded, the smaller parts may start to lift off after some wear and tear - just warm iron over them to rebond them to the fabric.

Bow tie centres can be taken out for cleaning, ironed flat and refolded like a fan and then inserted into the cenre piece. Please take care not to iron over any glitter applique sections.
