One Thimble Giftable Blog Round-up

I absolutely LOVE my “job”.  It’s so wonderful to be able to meet amazing indie designers and I feel so grateful that they let me include their work in One Thimble so you can meet them too!  I think its pretty cool that we’re forming connections all over the world between contributors and readers alike.  Networking, seeing people collaborating with others, it makes me feel giddy with excitement!

One Thimble Issue 8 Giftable

Stephanie from Swoodson Says came up with a pretty cool idea and organised a pattern swap between One Thimble Issue 8 contributors, so people could get an early start on their Christmas gift crafting!  This blog post is a round-up of what they sewed! Hopefully it’ll give YOU some inspiration for what you might like to make to gift this year.


 

Little Collector Backpack Stand Alone Cover

Amy from Momma Quail Patterns sewed a little collector backpack for her son and is going to make them to hold her nieces and nephews Christmas gifts.

Alicia from Felt with Love Designs sewed up a Little Collector Backpack for her daughter.  You can check out her short-cuts for the straps too!

Coco Crown Stand Alone Cover

 

I sewed a Coco Flower Crown over on my Ainslee Fox Boutique Patterns Blog for my niece.

Rebecca from Hugs are Fun sewed the Coco Flower Crown flowers for her wreath.

Lauren from Molly and Mama sewed a Hexie Wall art for her daughter’s bedroom here.

Jackalope Tee Stand Alone Cover

Stephanie from Swoodson Says sewed a Jackalope Tee for her son and is going to make a matching one for his buddy.  You really need to check out the cute size tags she made and find out more about the Inkodye project she used for the front panel

Fat Red Bird Fedora Stand Alone Cover

Michelle from The Toffee Tree sewed a Fat Red Bird Fedora for her son’s friends birthday.  I especially liked her interfacing tip for the “midnight sewist”.

Desert Fox Stand Alone Cover

Rachael from Sew Today, Clean Tomorrow sewed the Desert Fox Softie.  I really loved her explanation why her fox is the same colours as the pattern rather than the bright colours she’d initially intended … I’m sure you’ll be able to relate!

I’d love to hear what you’d like to sew from Issue 8 to give as gifts this year!  Let me know by commenting below or in the One Thimble Sewing Enthusiasts Group on Facebook!
