First I'd like to say, I don't believe in tricking people into looking at my shop by marking my listings by a deposit only. My price includes EVERYTHING! I'm up front and honest. My prices may seem high, but I assure you, you are getting the best Blanket you can find! I am in contact with you at ALL times, sending pictures and actually talking with you to make sure your blanket is exactly what you wanted. You AND I create your design. If you want me to be creative and do what Isabella Blue does best, I will create your memories as only Isabella Blue can do. So TRUST me! I GET IT!!!! I understand how special your shirts are to you and I will treat them as if they are my own. If you want to contact me by phone, you CAN! I would love to talk to you about any questions you have. E-Mail me. I'm ACCESSIBLE! Thank you for your time and checking out my shop! I appreciate it very much!!!
What to do with those t-shirts that are in your drawers??? Let me turn them into a fabulous keepsake!!! It is one of those things that you will be so glad you did. Especially if those shirts have meaning and bring back many great memories! School, Concerts, Vacations, Sports, among many other things could be amoung your collection.
Each blanket is made by me, and I understand the significance of a favorite TShirt. I LOVE TShirts and have always gotten one from many of the concerts I have gone to, or vacations I've been on...(which, really, hasn't been that many! lol)...That person is ME! I make sure I get ALL of the graphics of the shirt no matter what size. It's not square by square. It's interesting and different.
You would send me your shirts. I would handle them as if they were my own because I know how much they mean to you. If you have any reservations about sending them to a total stranger, I would be MORE THAN HAPPY to talk to you on the phone and reassure you that they are in good hands. (It amazes me that people would send them to someone they don't even know, but you can read my reviews and see that I will take care of you like you are a family member!)
Sizes range from 64 x 96 and go up to 80 x 112. It can be done flat, or in a ragged style. The ragged style is a bit more expensive as it takes several more yards of fabric to create that comfortable, worn in style. I need at least 24 shirts to create the 64 x 96 and 35 to create the 80 x 112. If your shirts have graphics on front AND back, that would be considered as 2 shirts.
It normally takes 4-6 weeks from the time I receive your shirts to completion. I like to do one at a time so that I can give your one of a kind keepsake all of my attention. I will contact you often and let you know how it's progressing and send pictures. Before I start to put it together, I will send you a picture of the layout I have designed. If you'd like to make any changes, I would be more than happy to do that. I would ask you what shirts you would like centered and I would build around them.
I am VERY fortunate as I have fallen in love with every customer I have had. I have made friends that I will have for many years to come. (If you DON'T want to be my friend, that's ok too!!!)...:-)
I love what I do and I especially love doing these blankets. They tell a story. They bring back memories. They are very special to YOU! There has not been one blanket I have done that I haven't loved. Until it is up to my standards, it's not done. Each blanket is then wrapped and put in a storage bag and shipped to you UPS.
These blankets are meant to be USED! They are sturdy, and soft. You are able to wash them in the washer and then throw them in the dryer. The more you wash them, the softer they get.
I use either a non-pill fleece, flannel, or a sweatshirt material for the backing. It is also filled with 100 cotton batting. All included in the price. You are also able to customize it with special ordered designer fabric for the back. That, of course, is an additional charge depending on the size of your blanket.
You won't regret doing this! If you love your shirts like I love mine, you will love your blanket! AND you'll empty your drawers. I know the feeling of not wanting to get rid of them. DO THIS! You'll be glad you did!
Please contact me if you have any questions. I'm sure you'll have many. I am always available and 99% of the time will respond to your message within the hour. (unless it's 3 in the morning, and even then, I've had conversations regarding blankets!)
I am in love with Isabella Blue....I hope you fall in love with her too! xoxo :-
Payment due at time of order.
All of my items are made to order. I prefer to make my blankets one at a time, to ensure all of my attention is on your custom order....(And to make sure someone elses tshirts don't make it into YOUR blanket! lol) THAT....would be horrible!!! :-)
Every blanket is presented in it's own storage bag. I believe in packaging! It's the first impression and I want to make it a good one! I believe that I do!
It is approximately 4-6 weeks from the time I receive your shirts for the completion of a custom TShirt Blanket. It is always shipped UPS with tracking which takes 5-7 days. If you'd like it shipped faster, there will be an additional charge.
Dog beds take about 1-2 weeks for completion and Collars take about a week to prepare for shipping. These are shipped either UPS or USPS, and they always have tracking.
Isabella Blue Designs does not ship Internationally at this time.
Since all blankets, dog beds and collars are custom made to order, Isabella Blue Designs is not able to accept returns.
Isabella Blue Designs prides itself on uniqueness and quality. It would be hard for you to find any other piece that resembles the individual character that Isabella Blue represents.
