About

The little miss gee story

I've been creative my whole life. Drawing, painting, printing, sewing, photography... I love learning a new craft and working out ways to make things.

With a particular love for hand printed textiles, patterns and prints and a niggling desire to create things by hand, I started crafting my own homewares. Made from my heart - each piece is designed with what I would like to have in my home. Realising that others may like what I made, I decided to take a step back from the advertising world, leaving the safety of full-time work and break out on my own, designing the things that make me truly happy. Utilising my skills as a graphic designer, I decided to build my own brand and create something joyful, meaningful and made from the heart. So little miss gee was born in 2012.

little miss gee makes a range of unique products, from tea towels and cushions to camera straps and tote bags. My designs are forever evolving and driven by colour and shape. They are also made simply for home lovers to enjoy - to decorate their space. I like to imagine all those homes where my products now live after they’ve left my hands, that are loved and cherished - this gives me a heartfelt smile!

All little miss gee products are handmade by me in my small home studio in Melbourne, Australia. My inspiration comes from everywhere: nature, photography, art, design, interiors and travel. Each piece starts its life as a thought or a picture in my mind, to a design on my mac. My designs can take a long time to be polished off, as I’m a perfectionist. Next is cutting a stencil for the screen. After the stencil is ready, I mix inks, buy fabric and print. Printing is a very exciting and satisfying step, seeing my designs finally come to life is truly rewarding. Sometimes the designs work, sometimes they don’t, but that's the fun of it. Designing and printing your own fabric is a slow process, but I love doing it. And finally, to a finished piece sewn on my mum's very first 1980's Bernina sewing machine.

I believe strongly about providing a quality, one-of-a-kind product, remaining true to my passion and to continue to love what I do. I dream that one day I'll have my very own print studio with every medium at hand, where I can create to my heart's content.

Shipping
little miss gee posts orders twice a week. If there is going to be a delay I'll will email you to let you know but I aim to get your order out as fast as I can. If you need your item urgently, please contact me so I can work out a new shipping amount so you can get your item faster.

DOMESTIC ORDERS:
Most Australian deliveries are free! I'd love to say that all Australian deliveries are free, it's just that some of my products are bulky. So your shipping cost will depend on what you order. But don't worry, you can always check how much it will be in your cart before you purchase anything.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS:
For international orders I use Australia Post economy airmail. This DOES NOT include tracking. I've included an option to ADD SIGNATURE ON DELIVERY to ensure the parcel is delivered to the correct address, for an additional charge. If you would like to add tracking, please contact me for a quote.

If you choose not to pay for a signature on delivery or tracking, and in the event that your parcel doesn't arrive I will NOT refund or send another item.

Please allow 7-15 working days for items to arrive in UK, USA and Canada. 15-20 working days for items to arrive in Europe and 14+ working days for items to arrive in Asia, however it has been known to take longer. If you have not received your order after 6 weeks from the date posted, I can arrange to either refund the money or send another item.

PLEASE NOTE: When your package arrives you may have to pay additional customs fees or import taxes for which you are responsible. I unfortunately have no control over these fees. If you think this may be the case or you have not ordered from overseas before please check with your post office prior to ordering. At times some European countries can delay items in customs for over a week, again, I have no control over this.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom Orders - When you place a custom order, a 50% deposit is required upon ordering with balance due upon delivery.

Out of stock - At little miss gee, I have ensured my designs and products are unique and unrivalled. As a result, many of my items are offered in limited quantities. When this stock runs out, it may not be reproduced again. In the case that it can, the item will be made to order and have a longer delivery time. In most cases items can take a month to make. Please contact me for an estimated delivery date before purchase.

Please be aware all products are hand printed and sewn by hand, therefore any slight variations are part of the nature of these bespoke items. Due to the nature of my fabrics, you may experience shrinkage of a few centimetres as the fibres tighten when washing in a machine. This should only happen after the first wash. For best results hand wash only or dry clean these fabrics to avoid shrinkage. Air dry and warm iron if required.
