I can’t believe its already time for a new One Thimble issue!! Seems like just yesterday I shared Issue 13 (maybe because it was one of the last few posts i’ve written… man that was a long holiday break, huh? sorry!)
I feel like I say it every issue but Jen and the contributors really knocked it out of the park! Inside of Issue 14 you’ll find 10 full patterns, 6 awesome tutorials, 4 cool techniques to try, articles about your handmade business and a partridge in a pear tree… haha just kidding about the partridge but the rest is no joke! OH… and if you get your issue before 2/13, you’ll get an early bird bonus!
These issues are so chalk full of information that printing them would be insanely expensive, so One Thimble is neatly packed into an E-Zine that you can easily swipe/scroll through on your table or pc and the patterns are all provided in PDF form so you can just print what you need. It’s GENIUS! and it keeps the price at only $25 AUD (for us girls in the US its under $20!!)
I’m dying to try the fabric covered snaps, and make a belt… do you know how hard it is to find toddler belts???
I whipped up the romper from Thread Faction for my little guy and seriously I see about 100 more of these for our summer months! I had planned a tee under it but he had a mind of his own this morning so we went with it… SO. IN. LOVE.
I used an organic cotton interlock from Birch Fabrics, it was the perfect weight and so soft! I also found some vintage buttons in the stash from my grandmother that were exactly what it needed. These straps are non-functioning, but really easy to get on/off. This goes from a 2T to 10 so I might try to convince miss opinionated 9 to try one too, if i’m lucky, lol
I also made one of the Hottie Covers. I thought i’d move away from my norm and try this piecing, its so fun!! I’d have to say I think he likes it. AND If you’re thinking to yourself, “We don’t even own a hot water bottle for that”… never fear, I have a solution that i’ll be sharing later this week!
I used some knit scraps that were laying around and fleece but this would also be a great project to upcycle some old sweaters.
