One Thimble is a digital sewing magazine (e-zine) made by sewing enthusiasts for sewing enthusiasts! If you enjoy sewing for boys & girls then One Thimble is the online magazine for you.

Released quarterly each issue of One Thimble includes PDF sewing patterns for projects that you can make and sell, as well as personal sewing stories, general interest and sewing technique articles, and tips for those running a handmade business.

Between issues you can join the fun in our sewing community sharing your sewing and getting the advice and encouragement you need to help your sewing soar!

One Thimble’s passion is inspiring confidence in enthusiastic home sewists—whether you’re sewing purely for fun or to make some money. When you have confidence in your skills and ideas, you bring your own style and twist to every pattern you sew.

Our latest issue is Issue 11 – it’s jam packed with sewing projects around the theme of “Urban Jungle”.  Think colour-blocking, geometric prints and practical Winter clothing for boys and girls.  There’s even patterns for babies and Mum, as well as toys to sew to inspire creative play.
