Advice Please?

I'm looking for some advice here. I'm not sure what to do to help my best friend. She won a partial from furbuy and the maker was going to do handpaws and sleeves to the buyer's size. They're simple, sandwich no pads, no claws. How long is it supposed to take when you have all you need? I'm not really a 'maker' myself, but I did my own sleeves and paws in less than a week...but that was me being lazy because sometimes I find hand sewing boring.

Should it take beyond the limit of recouping money on paypal? It's 46 days now since she paid in full, expecting it to not take too long because of how long it takes me to hand sew stuff for myself. Obviously money for me means I'll not be so lazy and complete it faster. But..yeah.

I suppose it just irks me that this maker has made a headbase and will fur it to sell and make it into a partial and is also offering so many spots for headbases at this moment, but can not finish up something that was already paid for. I really like this maker, each head they do, they get better and better! I just find it offputting. My friend tells me she just gets excuses as to why it's not even started yet. At least cut the parts out?

How long should she wait before asking for a refund and or posting the maker here to warn others to be wary? She does really want the partial though, so I'm leaning more towards ideas on how to motivate the maker into finishing and shipping it out. So anything you can offer to help, please do!
