Happy Monday!! Welcome to my little stop on the One Thimble Tour.
Today we’re celebrating Issue No. 9 PLUS One Thimble’s 2nd Birthday!! So excited for Jen and the team at OT.
If you haven’t checked out this fabulous E-zine yet, you have seriously missed 8 amazing issues and 100’s of patterns. In the past i’ve been lucky enough to review the full magazine, but this time (with a crazy home life) I decided to just preview one pattern. Don’t worry, I’m picking up my own copy too because there are some crazy cute things that I’m dying to sew up this issue. Want to win your own FREE copy?? Don’t miss the giveaway at the end!!
This issue I decided to check out The Statement Clutch from Two Pretty Poppets because honestly, a girl can never have too many bags, and i’m in the midst of deciding on teacher gifts for the holidays. Hello…. this is PERFECT!
The pattern comes in 3 sizes, what you see here is the small.
This is the perfect size for a bag to keep in my bigger purse for those quick trips, or for just a day out by myself. Can you tell we are hitting winter in the midwest… I can’t leave home without nose wipes, haha!
Now for those looking at this lovely lace overlay saying, “That had to have taken so much time” you’re wrong! I even admit, I was thinking that as I looked at fabric options, thinking what could I use so I didn’t need to add the overlay, lol! I decided to go with it though and the extra 2 minutes that it took (yes, thats really all it was) to freehand quilt some crazy waves (cause really who has time to make a neat even pattern??) was totally worth it. It gives it such a gorgeous finish.
There is also a recommendation of when to attach your tag if your putting one on, but rather than the back as suggested, I went with a smaller tag in the side seam. Mostly I wanted to use these cute tiny tags I got recently.
This is also great for those fabrics that you are down to your last 1/2 yard or fat quarter scrap. I went with these awesome Spotted Owls from Alexander Henry, and Elegant Ovals from Art Gallery. Both of which have been in my stash for years waiting for just the right project.
Ok, so I know I promised we were giving away a free copy of Issue No 9… here is your chance!!
