The botanical cat dolls are made from vintage upcycled cross stitch pillow covers.


A Creative Cat Lady , Crazy About Yarn.

Welcome to MissMinoes, an Etsy shop for catlovers,
Here you'll find hats with cat ears, catnip filled eyeballs, cat shaped door draft stoppers and other kitty goodness.

Hello, I'm Ama de Jong, an upbeat creative from the Netherlands. Knitwear designer and maker. I run two Etsy shops: MissMinoes for catlovers and AllFairness for a vibrant vintage style.

As a designer I am inspired by the DIY attitude of the punk movement. I've always expressed myself creatively next to my study and jobs. Through painting, silk screen printing and textile crafts. Curious by nature I love the experience of museum visits. And nothing thrills me more than learning a new craft at a creative workshop.
Next to my job at a health shop I work as a crochet and knitting teacher at Handwerkstudio Leiden.
For my choice of materials I try to find a balance between reclaiming discarded yarn and fabric and buying natural and organic materials.

I believe in using craft as a means to make an impact on society.
As my heart is full of kitty love 15% of all proceeds is donated to animal charity: the animal shelter Stevenshage in my hometown Leiden.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

Sizing details for the hats:

Small: 21" (54 cm)
Medium : 22" (56 cm)
Large: 23" (58 cm)
Extra Large: 24" (61 cm)

Do you offer combined shipping?

Yes! If you purchase several items at once you'll only pay the shipping for 1 item. Just add several items to your shopping basket and see how much you'll pay on shipping to your country. (The highest rate counts.)

Can I call you?

Although by European law I should include my phone number I have opted not to share my phone details for 3 reasons:
1. As I also have a day job I can not take any calls most of the time.
2. Time zones may not always be clear, I would rather not get eny calls at night.
3. Plus: I really don't like talking on the phone anyway.

Gift wrapping and packaging

If you bought the item as a gift for someone else I can enclose an invoice without price if you prefer. I can also wrap it up nicely, but will leave the package open for you to take a sneak peek before you gift it. Because that's what I always like to do :-)
