Welcome to Izzy Bee Baby - a result of my enjoyment of fabric and creating things, and my now not-so-recent love of all things baby (our daughter Isabel is now 11 years old)! It started when Isabel was a baby and I couldn't find a practical but bright and fun sunhat - so I drafted a pattern and made one. Then I made some bibs, and then a friend suggested I try making an apron and it went from there.

I've always enjoyed making soft toys - I made many from scratch on my mum's sewing machine when I was young. I love trying new things and my favourite toys to date would have to be the super-hero kids, and the skittle sets (although these are very time consuming!). In my opinion, hand-made toys are so much more interesting than bulk-produced store-bought toys. They have a history, are of a better quality and have been made with love. Thank you for taking the time to visit our shop, and for supporting NZ-made!
