One Thimble, Issue #12

Another wonderful issue of One Thimble (affiliate link) is out and once again I was delighted by all Issue No.12 has to offer.

I made the girls Thread Faction Dress No. 111 and the Melbourne Romper by Jilly Atlanta.

The Melbourne is just this cute little bubble of a romper that was so fun to create for Amelia.

All day she kept on saying how comfy and cozy she was, but was terribly upset that she didn't get to choose her own buttons and also admited at the end of the day that the buttons were cute even though she didn't get to see them because they were on the back.

This pattern is available in sizes 3-6 months to 4T and its designed for woven fabrics. Tutorial is easy to follow and all measurements are given in metric and imperial.

The dress from Thread Faction is designed for knits, and its so very quick and easy to put together.

I love the curve of the front bodice. Its such a pretty detail and so easy to achieve with the tips given in the tutorial. This little pretty is available in sizes 2-10 and again all charts and measurements are given in metric and imperial.

You may have noticed that One Thimble's theme for this issue is Water Colors...and yes the theme did play a part in my fabric selection. But another thing that I noticed as I was reading through the magazine articles is that this issue is about building confidence in yourself, taking chances, empowering yourself to reach your business goals or your creative goals.
So if your a beginner, there's a great article on choosing knit fabrics and tips on how to sew knits with confidence. And if your running a small handmade business there are some must read articles about pricing, taking photos either lifestyle shots or flat lays.
Even more in the 247 pages, plus a little surprise if you get your early...but I'm not going to give it all away! Go get your own issue of One Thimble No.12!









Until next time, xx.
