My Package Says It Was Delivered, but I Never Got It
- Once a package has been marked as delivered, it is considered delivered. I am not responsible for lost or stolen packages after delivery has taken place
- I suggest taking the following actions if this happens to you: 1. Speak with your family members and neighbors, they may have moved the package without telling you. 2. Check the area around your home thoroughly especially behind or under bushes, at all doors including side and back doors, and under/behind yard decorations. Some carriers like to hide packages to prevent theft. Check your mailbox as well. This may seem common sense, but many customers expect packages to be delivered to the porch and so they do not check their mailbox. Many of my plushies will fit in a mailbox and may be delivered there. 3. Call your local post office and ask them to look into it. In many cases, they can track the exact GPS location your package was delivered to. 4. If you still cannot locate your package it may have been stolen. If this happens you will need to report the theft. Contact your local police via the non emergency line and file a police report. Be sure to get the incident # and save this for your records. You can start the process of an online mail report with the postal inspector here (https://www.postalinspectors.uspis.gov/) or by phone at 877-876-2455 (press 3). If you need any information from me, please let me know.
- If mail theft is common in your area, please contact me before placing your order to request signature confirmation be added to your order for no additional charge (U.S. orders only).
- If you know you are going to be out of town, you can request a mail hold with USPS to reduce the likelihood of theft. You can do so at the following website: https://holdmail.usps.com/holdmail/
- Another option to reduce mail theft is to sign up for a PO box here: https://www.usps.com/manage/po-boxes.htm
I always found these bats to be super cute but had been too busy to test the pattern right away.
Currently, I'm going through a hard time in life and had lost my zest for sewing. As it is my full-time job to sew, I couldn't leave that be.
I used this pattern to help me get back into my work. As working with my embroidery machine seems to be too much for me at the moment and I didn't feel up to taking on a bigger project. This was the perfect step back in.
I'm currently working on a few of them, trying to get my mind back together. I've found that these have brought a certain calm to me when my mind has been a mess as of late. I'm still not ready to go full-on back to my normal work, but I'm glad I can still make a little income while trying to recover.
Thank you so much for selling this pattern.
I've never made a stuffed animal from a pattern before, and even though the challenge rating on this pattern is pretty high, even a beginner like me can follow it. It even includes a video for people who learn by watching someone else do it. I'm excited to try the other patterns!
I really love how easy and detailed the instructions were, even without the video. I made a few bat friends of my own and they're just amazing!! Would definitely buy from here again <3.
I really love this bat !
And the pattern and explanations are perfect.
But it is very difficult to sew such little pieces !
I've made three bats following this pattern and they've all turned out really well and absolutely adorable. The pattern is really well designed; the body shape is nice and it sits up well if you use the recommended combo of stuffing and poly pellets. The opposing curve seams are short enough that I didn't have any issue getting them to sit nicely. There's a few fiddly bits, but if you have patience and go slowly they're perfectly doable.
The video tutorial was really helpful, especially with these tiny patterns it can be difficult to visualise the steps from the instructions so it's useful to see someone else do it. Overall I'll be using this pattern many many more times, and I'll definitely be purchasing from BeeZeeArt again.
