Refund Policy


PDF Sewing Patterns Returns


Unfortunately as our sewing patterns are digital items, they can’t be returned so we’re unable to offer refunds for digital purchases. When
purchasing a digital product from us, the terms & conditions at checkout confirm that you give up your right to cancel the purchase under EU consumer laws as the item is non-returnable.


Physical Product Returns


It’s important to us that you’re happy with your purchase, but if for any reason you’re not happy with you can return your order using our online returns portal. This is your “right of withdrawal”. Items must be returned at your expense, within 30 days of receipt for a full refund.

Click here to use our returns portal to arrange your return (UK only). Return postage is paid for by you, the buyer.

If your item is faulty - please do not use the returns portal. Instead, you can contact us by email at shop@countrycowdesigns.com.

If you are outside the UK - please contact us by email at shop@countrycowdesigns.com to arrange your refund.


Please double check measurements and read product details thoroughly before purchasing. When you cancel or return your order, we incur costs that are not refunded to us such as payment processing fees and postage costs.


To qualify for a refund, the products must be unused and in re-saleable condition. Once we’ve inspected the returned items, we’ll refund you within 14 days. The refund will be processed to the same payment source used for purchase.


Return delivery charges are payable by the customer, not Country Cow Designs, except where items are faulty.


In certain circumstances, we will only grant a partial refund. This includes where any item is not in its original condition, is damaged or missing parts for reasons not due to our error, or any item that is returned more than 30 days after delivery. You’ll be responsible for paying for your own postage costs for returning your order. We recommend that you obtain proof of postage or tracking when returning your items as we can’t guarantee receipt of your order.



Late or missing refunds

If you haven’t received a refund when expected, we recommend contacting your bank or credit card provider. Please bear in mind, it can take several days for your bank to process the refund and show it in your account.

If you’ve done this and you still have not received your refund 7 working days after you were notified of your refund, please contact us.



Damaged/Faulty items: If you think you’ve received an item that’s damaged, faulty, or otherwise incorrect, please contact us at shop@countrycowdesigns.com with a photo and description of the fault. We will get back to you within 24 hours to resolve the issue.
