Happy Holidays!

It's that time of the year at last. Today was our last market until next year.  

It's time to take a break, chill out, and then let all the new ideas for next year out of the monkey brain and on to some paper, and some fabric.  I can't wait to get a few days in my workroom!

Until then, thank you for all your support this year and have a great holiday.  

I couldn't put it any better than this card from Starling & finch who I met at the Magic of Christmas a couple of weeks ago ...

Belle Frocks - new colours

The new Belle Frocks are coming along nicely.  The most fun, but most time consuming part is the final embellishments.  I love doing them but being a bit of a perfectionist it does sometimes take ages to find the right mix.

Do let me know in the comments section if you think I should leave a few plain.  You could then wear a huge statement necklace instead??

Here's some pics.  They aren't on the website yet.  I took these with my iPhone at the market on Sunday so sorry about the quality ...

These are a burgundy colour - organic cotton fabric. The birds on the main fabric are flying free, the ones on the applique are more goth and caged.

These ones are a beautiful floral, again the fabric is organic cotton and the appliques are in a Matisse style.

These ones are quite a pretty floral print and the appliques are Japanese inspired kawaii.  I so love them!

Email me if you want to buy: minnie.faux at 

There are also some others at the Napier pop up shop - there a couple of foxes and the other caramel coloured ones, at the back of the rack!!

There are a few more colours coming - here's the original cutting pics:

Napier pop-up shop

Here's our wee slice of Napier.  It's a tower of Minnie + Ree - snap wrap skirts, reversible skirts with pockets and even a few Belle Frocks.  Napier, I have given you my best!  

It's at the Made It Here Craftmas Market, 14 Hastings Street, Napier for all of December. And now I have to get to work to make more to restock!

Minnie + Ree will also be at:
