A while ago I had the opportunity to test a pattern that was destined to be part of an e-magazine. I had a great time testing the pattern, but got busy and haven’t ever gotten around the blogging about the shirt I made. The Traveller Tee is now available on its own, and was originally part of One Thimble Issue #4.
Anyhow, more recently the name of the e-magazine popped up again and I jumped at the opportunity to read and review it. Boy am I glad I did!.One Thimble was really a treat to read. I love the way it looks, the colors are bright and cheery, the fonts are fun and it’s laid out very nicely. It’s the sort of magazine I would love to pick up and read in the waiting room at the dentist. Though the poor dentist might be missing a magazine after my appointment.
I knew there would be awesome patterns in the e-zine, but the articles definitely hold their own. I now know that I have been neglecting my poor serger and not cleaning it nearly often enough. Also, I’ve got the Bells Beach Dress cut out because shirring doesn’t look nearly so daunting after reading One Thimble.
There are two patterns I’ve already sewn, though I have plans to make more. As I mentioned before, I have the Bells Beach Dress already cut out. The Rustic Reindeer Bunting is something my mom definitely needs for Christmas decorating this year ( and I may as well make myself one too). The Bunting Three ways pattern is going to be perfect for decorating the boys’ room, I’m thinking I like the triangles the best. And since boys can never have too many jackets, I see a Bonfire Jacket or two in my near future.
I made one small change to my Ralphie Reindeer, I filled him with rice, which is why he’s not nice and plump like others you may have seen. Why rice? So that I can pop this cute little guy in the microwave for a few minutes and then give him to Baden or Mack to snuggle and know he’ll keep them nice and warm. I need to make another one so they don’t have to share, but can each have their own adorable little warming buddy.
If you’ve been following along the tour and have seen what the other gals made you may have noticed that a lot of us made the art caddy. (and if you haven’t seen what the others have made yet, the stops are all listed at the bottom of this post) The art caddy tutorial is really awesome! I’m going to be giving them as Christmas gifts (so I already have another cut out). I think they will be the perfect way to distract the boys during church. And if they each have their own set of coloring utensils, they won’t have to fight.
