Blog Tour | One Thimble E-Zine Issue 16

Who’s ready to check out a new issue of One Thimble??  I’m super excited to be sharing a few of the patterns available in Issue 16, they are so much fun!  This usually goes without saying but staff at One Thimble and contributors have nailed it again, I want to make pretty much everything in this issue!!  Now who has a magic potion for making more time????   (Please note: Affiliate links are used in this post.  If you choose to purchase a product that i’ve shared I will receive a small compensation that contributes to my sewing fund so that I can keep sharing!)

To give you a little peek into this issue I made the Scuttle Shorts and Triton Singlet both by Ainslee Fox.  With school back in session, we need comfy, easy everyday wear, and these seemed like the perfect option.

The Triton Singlet is a looser, relaxed fit tank, designed with a slightly shorter front.  The pattern markings show you exactly where to make adjustments if you’d prefer a longer style but we really loved the fit just as is.   I also secretly love this because it’s perfect for boys too, if you know anything about me you know I love patterns that both kids can benefit from!

Quick tangent… can you even stand the cuteness of these frenchies????  This fabric is from Piccadilly Textiles and is gorgeous! If you haven’t ever worked with really amazing quality cotton lycra you need to give this a try, plus those pups! haha!

The Scuttle Shorts have 2 length options; shorty, which you see pictured here, and jamaica length, which is slightly longer.  They can also be made with a plain front or with the pockets, and with two options for the waistband (which i’m sorry!! i just realized I didn’t get a pic to share!)  The pattern cover inspired me to use this french terry and I really love how all you need to do is turn it inside out on the pockets for built in contrasting fabric.

Just a tip… if you like both of these patterns, you should really buy the whole e-zine!  For just a few more dollars (vs buying individually) you will receive TEN patterns!! Plus even more tutorials and tons of amazing content!  Want to see more from this issue??  Check out all the other stops on the blog tour!
