Another favourite - Patty Young

I really relate to Patty, in 2005 Patty left the corporate world to spend her time with her kiddies and follow her own creative adventures.  Okay so maybe Patty is more like someone I wish I could be... Patty and her husband own MODKID LLC were they specialise in high quality boutique-style sewing patterns which include children's clothes, doll outfits, purses and other assorted accessories and home furnishings.  But it's the fabric designs that I LOVE.  Go and enjoy a little more about Patty at

My favourite designers - Heather Bailey

To be completely lost in the magical world of fabric and see first-hand the transition from yard/meter to dress is as exciting as being a child watching her first butterfly. 

My next couple of posts are about my favourite fabourite designers (I love them all equally) and their latest fabric collections.  Hopefully I'll get my hands on a couple of yards and turn them into gorgeous dresses.

Heather Bailey is an incredible designer with an eye for colour that is recognised world wide.  She has her fingers on the tips of fabricsewing patterns, paper craft supplies , stationery, picnicware.  If you grab a mo, head on over to her website and indulge in a colour explosion. Pin It Now!
