Interview with Kylie from Little Moo Designs

One of my dreams with One Thimble is for it to become a place to showcase and mentor new designers.  I’ve been so excited to watch Kylie’s pattern brand grown over the past few months!

Picture Kylie’s love of sewing began when she was
young. Her Nan and Mum are both amazing
dressmakers. Little Moo Designs was
started in 2010 when she wanted to design
a unique hobby horse for her daughter. She
now designs and sews many designs with
a focus on high quality children’s fashion,
accessories and her beloved hobby horses.
Kylie has contributed the Busy Block pattern
to Issue 4.

What, where or who inspires you?
I am so lucky to live on a beautiful little farm in South East Queensland. I love the Aussie rural life, this for me is where a significant part of my inspiration comes from. I am inspired by country landscape, the beautiful small community we live in and my amazing family and friends.

What is your favourite haby item?

Clover button hole cutter – the best invention ever! Makes cutting button holes neat and easy. Do you have any tips for balancing family life and kids with business? I do use a Schedule, life here is hectic running a farm with my husband, working part time and running Little Moo Designs on top of being a wife and mum. I schedule work time and try and leave plenty of time to spend with my family also. Sometimes the two cross over but that is how it works when you work from home.

What is your favourite pattern you’ve made and why? 
My favourite pattern would be my childrens messenger bag as this is the first pattern I released and continues to be my top seller. I love that it comes with 4 applique designs and there are loads of way this little bag can be customised. They make the perfect gift and are such a quick sewing project.

Do you do other crafts? If not what would you like to have a go at?
I am undertaking “Project Life” this year….I am running a few months behind but am finding it a great quick and easy way to keep track of the year. My kids love looking through the album and its a perfect way to capture the small details each week that are so easy to forget.
