One Thimble Issue 7!!!!!

 How excited am I to be here today to talk to you about One Thimble Issue 7?! If you haven't heard, One Thimble is an e-zine that offers tips, tricks, PATTERNS and just so much more. Let me give you a little peek: 

I know right! It's good stuff! I was asked to review this Issue and I am so happy to say it was wonderful. For the first time in my life, someone has explained and shown me EXACTLY how to install a magnetic snap! Valuable information! Thank you, One Thimble!

Obviously, I  REALLY dig the fact that this issue is packed with 10 patterns and they include something for girls, boys AND women. Even a little something for Barbie!

There are even articles on how to market your page or shop; how to best use Pinterest. I don't want to give too much away but I definitely enjoyed this issue very much and I am totally hooked on this e-zine. I even learned all about working with wool felt, which I never actually considered before....I wonder if they have that at my local fabric shop.....

I was asked to sew 2 of the patterns in this issue:

 Lil Red Capelet & Furry Friends Hood by The Toffee Tree. Oh it's so CUTE! I would dearly love to show you the ones I made ....but ...I am no longer allowed to play with the 11.5" fashion dolls. There was an...incident. Apparently the furry friends are NOT allowed to take over Barbie village and enslave the other dolls in the enchanted ....bedroom floor.... There is apparently no world domination by furry friends allowed. Who knew?


I also got to sew the Tahlia Maxi Skirt by Little Moo Designs. Isn;t it so cute? Now I am not normally a maxi skirt kind of girl. In fact, this was the first maxi skirt I ever sewed and the second one too! The instructions are sooooooooooooooo easy to understand that I, literally, made 2 of these skirts in one night. The very best part is that it's completely based on your measurements so it's a perfect fit! I loved it. In fact, I wore one of my Tahlia maxi skirts today :) It's fast and easy and fun to wear. Can't ask for much more than that, huh?

 This is the first Maxi Skirt I ever made! I love, love, love it. It's made with some real soft, slinky polyester knit fabric that feels real good swishing around my legs lol. I love this skirt, i even like this pic because it gives you a good idea of who I am. In fact, this maxi is what I wore today. Thanks, One Thimble and Little Moo.

This is my second because one of these skirts simply wasn't enough. This time I used an Art Gallery knit that I picked up at Whimsical Fabric. It's really soft and I love it a lot. It's part of the Petal and Plume line.

I have had so much fun on this blog tour. I hope you'll join us for the rest of the tour :)
