Welcome to Anna Lee Handmade where we make a range of beautiful clothing for babies and children suitable for all seasons.  All items are made handmade with love in Taranaki, New Zealand.

Our items are unique, being one off items or made in very small batches only.  We prefer to use natural fibres, particularly wool (upcycled blankets or new wool blends) and cotton.

Nellie Coats have been popular again this autumn and winter, especially in plain pink, mustard, and purple wools .   

The website will be updated from time to time with 'choose your size' options.   Now that the initial beginning of winter rush is slowing down a little please feel free to contact me through the contact tab, or social media, to discuss custom requests.


The gorgeous winter Heidi dresses have now been released and are available now.  Many of them have been cut out but not made up meaning you can choose whether or not to add the flutter sleeves.  In some cases (mainly baby sizes) you can also choose the size you want!

These dresses are made from a new wool fabric on one side and a cotton fabric on the other.  They are fully reversible meaning two outfits for the price of one!


The winter weather has really hit us now.  My children catch the school bus in the mornings and standing at the bus stop in the morning gives me a really good gauge on how the temperature is changing with the season.  Hats have become a must!

We now have a delightful range of bunny ear and bear ear hats available.  There are lots of options to suit both boys and girls from size 0-6mths right through to adults.  The hats are made mainly from my off-cuts after making coats and vests and as a result there are hardly ever two the same.  Fun, warm, ethical and unique!
