About - Little Mites

Debbie is the owner of Little Mites

What started as a hobby doing markets on a Saturday, turned into a
business designing and manufacturing babies wear and restoring
old baby furniture.

Working from my home, in a specially designed shop, allowed customers
to shop after hours at their leisure.

Sewing, became a hobby again, making garments, curtains or repairs for
friends and neighbours.


After closing my shop in New Zealand and moving over to Australia in 2000, I started in the hospitality industry working in many places around Melbourne.

I managed to bring all my fabrics and ideas to Melbourne with me as a backup for when I wanted to change jobs, or do sewing as a hobby again.

In 2010 I had a company in America interested in a new product I had invented. I paid them to find someone to market, distribute and manufacture, and maybe patent my idea.  After they took all my money and 3 years later, they had not done anything, so I decided to pursue this myself.

My business in New Zealand was called Little Blessings.  I wanted the same name in Australia. Unfortunately this name was not available. I chose a few other names but Little Mites had a nice sound to it, and was accepted for registration.

The birth of Little Mites came about in 2011, however it wasn’t until 2013, that I decided to launch an online store and start selling my designs and products.

I find that the quality of a lot of products made overseas is poor or just cheap and nasty. I wanted customers to be able to have the best quality available. This also keeps jobs in Australia.

I will continue to expand my range as demand requires. Any suggestions are welcome. If you have a special garment you want made for that special occasion, give me a call.

    • Hi Jeremy,
      Thankyou for the nice comments. It’s good to see our work is appreciated.
      Wordpress does all the work, we have just used a template to build the site.
      There is a little (a Lot) configuration, but it all works well.

      This was my first ecommerce store.

    • Thank you for your kind words. If you are interested in a variety of subjects, I would suggest you visit Bub Hub. This has a huge forum. I try to cover subjects that may not be in a lot of forums or blogs. I find interesting article that I think others might be interested in as well. I would like to start a discussion on how we can reduce the risks of Cot Death or SUDI. From a parents view, not a professional one.Sometimes statistic and studies blur the reality of the subject.I would like to hear from parents that know or have experienced this and what information was discussed with them before childbirth and after. There has to be a void in communication somewhere along the journey.
