Heather Bailey's Nicey Jane fabrics and new sewing patterns



A few weeks ago, I ordered some of Heather Bailey's newest fabrics from her new line Nicey Jane. I have to tell you, I love, love, love her new collection! I've always been her fan anyways but her new line is awesome. I love the way her fabrics feel and look.

I have to admit, I was a bit surprised to see the pattern style on her new line. A bit different from her last collection. My first introduction to Heather's fabric was through her Pop Garden collection. I remember admiring the bright and dramatic patterns on her fabrics, in which some became my all-time favorites. So for the longest time I had always associated Heather with the vibrant and dramatic pattern element. Until recently. And actually, some of the new fabric patterns remind me of patterns on her first fabric line, Fresh Cut, which has been discontinued.

Now, moving on to the sewing patterns. I also happen to just bought 2 of Heather's newest mini sewing patterns, Smart Girl Book Bag and Effie and Ollie Elephant pin cushions or toys. I am mostly excited to try to make the Smarty Girl book bag (with my new Heather's fabrics!). As of the mini elephants, the plan is to make several of them and turn them into baby mobile for Audrey.

Ok now as a reminder, don't forget to enter the giveaway. You don't want to miss it! Also, remember, there'll be more giveaways in the coming weeks on my blog, so check back often!
