Hey friends!! Feels like we were just here talking about how amazing One Thimble’s last issue was and then I realized it’s because i’ve been pretty MIA since the last issue, but i’m back with a peak at Issue 18, which is on virtual stands NOW!!!
In this issue, The Wolf and the Tree brings us Abby’s Ballerina Tie Top. A beautifully simple top, that steps up a notch with the addition of wide wrap ties.
There are 3 sleeve lengths, as well as a regular neck, or cowl option. You can also make the ties single or double sided. I went with the double sided option just for fun, I love the little extra something it adds.
I also am so in love with this gorgeous knit from Art Gallery Fabrics. Its so soft and comfortable but still super classy. I believe this one is out of stock now but check out Phat Quarters Fabric for other fabulous prints from AGF, you definitely will not be disappointed!
As with every issue of One Thimble, this one is full of phenomenal patterns, tutorials and articles. Since there’s no way I could share it all with you myself, be sure to follow along the rest of our blog tour to see what else this issue has in store!
My how time flies!! I can’t believe its already release day for a new issue of One Thimble! I’m hoping by now some of you have bought past issues and have been able to enjoy first hand all the awesomeness that lies in those virtual pages. This issue is no different!

Reading through this issue, I was excited to see an article from Kristie Gilbert of Boo! Designs about sewing with knits. Knits are my passion for sure and so many people are afraid of trying them. She has some great ideas and work-around tips for everyone to give knits a shot! Boo! Designs also has a lovely swim pattern included… stay tuned next week for my pictures of that sewn up!
There are also some fantastic tips about working with and choosing leathers as your medium. This is the perfect time to try sewing with leather, especially since there is a beautiful clutch pattern included!
I also love reading up on the business related articles, making Facebook and Pinterest work more effectively for my own business is always welcome information!
How about a holiday gift guide?? A collection of items you can make for all your fiends and family from issues past… oh yes its there!! And if you need to give anyone ideas for gifts for you… what about a One Thimble subscription?? Its a gift that keeps giving!
There is so much more to read but I can’t give away all the good stuff right??? You will have to pick up your own copy to check out the rest!
Now, I know your thinking… but you said there were 10 patterns and all we’ve heard about are articles…. the wait is over! I had this fun donut fabric hanging around and it was beyond PERFECT for Danny Donut. Danny Donut is one of 3 free motion appliques in this issue. This one is great if you have never done free motion before, as it can really be done as traditional applique as well.
I used the donut fabric on a pair of Orbis Harem Skinny Pants from Sofilantjes. We went with a cropped version, and no pockets (per miss things request)
I love the angled button placard, what a fun detail!
Ryleigh was so proud of the phrase she came up with on her shirt we’d love to share with everyone… how about a free cut file to add the same text to your Danny Donut?? Click HERE to download.
There is SO SO much more to share from this issue and all the insanely talented ladies below are going to be adding some things in along our tour over the next week so be sure to check in with them all!
