Hayyyy Babe...

Hay Babe is a moo full of kindness and it brings me so much happiness to share this brand new pattern with you!

This sweet soul, enjoys spending time in flowery fields, surrounded by fresh air and warm rays. She lives a life free of worry and enjoys green smoothies. You could say she is udderly perfect and it’s no wonder she glistens with positivity and happiness. Featuring a fringe and a 3D floral crown, she is a stunner sure to make you smile!

The bag featured above, is a collaboration between myself and Kylie from Little Moo Designs. This mash up was taught at our Quirky Moo Retreat early March 2020 and boy oh boy we all had an AMAZING time together at the fabulous retreat venue: Stacey's at the Gap. Every single person who attended, left with a gorgeous ONE-OF-A-KIND bag, new skills and whole new group of like minded friends! It was wonderful... Check out some of their amazing versions below!

Aren't they awesome! This is just a snippet of the bags created at our first Quirky Moo Retreat. If you'd like to join in the fun, Kylie and I are having another retreat in October 2020 with a brand new exciting project! Check out the flyer below for more info.


The Hay Babe pattern includes reversed applique pieces, applique placement template, tips and tricks for appliqueing with decorative stitches, plus instructions to make a mini quilt, tote and cushion! However, it's important to remember that your creativity is limitless... There are so many options! Pimp out a jacket, add an extra pizzazz to a ready made item. It is an awesome way to use up fabric scraps and make something that is truly ONE-OF-A-KIND!

Check out this amazing foot stool created by one of my extremely talented pattern testers, Carla of Endear Me. Isn't it cool!! I love the fabric's Carla used on this beauty. Featuring black and white gingham background fabric, it works great to create a modern country vibe. Those yellow flowers, scream happiness!

Beware, cows are very social and don’t like to be alone.. You may need to make a whole herd!

Hay Babe + Shine on Sling Bag by Mary Rose Creative.

Isn't it such a pretty version?! I love the extra little touches and floral prints!

Hay Babe has many customization options, in particular fringe options!

You can use fringing or many other trims or there is a fabric option included in the reversed applique pieces. There is also the option of no fringe at all. It's amazing how different they all look!

You can have no flowers, one flower, three flowers or MANY flowers like Wendy's version above (there is even a bee). If you want to pimp out Hay Babe and make her a little more edgy... add a nose ring like Kirrilee's below... SO COOL!

If you're a Tula Pink lover, check out the funky blue cow (above), yes a cow can be ANY colour you wish by Caroline. The stunning version (below) in Tula Pink de la luna is created by my gorgeous Mumma. Aren't they mooOoo-velous!

It is a great opportunity to experiment with different mediums too. Robyn's bag below, is made completely from leather scraps, it is stunning!

I used a brand new product for my bag below, which I'm releasing soon. It's a metallic soft vinyl. I'm in love with this product! I've stocked it for a while, I just haven't managed to get it up on the website. Those of you who saw me at craft shows last year, may have taken a piece of this sparkly goodness home with them. It's a dream to sew, glides through your sewing machine without the need for a Teflon foot (AMAZING)... not to mention PERFECT for any mythical, GLITTER loving sewist.

I used the gold for my bag with mermaid coloured 3D flowers. Once it's listed online, I'll be sure to let you all know. It's seriously awesome to work with!

For now my friends, I send you positive vibes, happy thoughts and creative motivation. For me personally, I find I'm most at ease being creative, making something fun. I hope Hay Babe makes you smile!
