OT21 Sneak Peek

One Thimble Issue 21 releases today!  If you’d like to look inside One Thimble Issue 21 check out this little sneak peek we made just for you!

Keen to get your copy?

One Thimble Issue 21 will be available to purchase HERE after 30th August.

New to One Thimble and wondering how it works?

One Thimble is a digital sewing magazine (e-zine).  It is delivered as a PDF file and you can flip through it like a magazine on your computer or tablet device.  Patterns can be printed out on a regular home computer and assembled as you would with a regular PDF pattern.

Purchasing an issue of One Thimble will get you two download links.

One is the link to the E-zine – it has the articles at the front and all the pattern tutorials at the back (but not the pattern pieces).

The second link is to a ZIP file with the stand alone patterns all separate.  You’ll find the pattern pieces here.

Gifts to sew for Boys

When my step-son was 12 I took him shopping for a cap for his Christmas present.  All the caps at the surfshops were too big so we ended up at Pumpkin Patch … and then ended up NOT getting a hat.  Who knew that pre-teen boys would be so touchy about shopping in a children’s wear shop!  Granted this was pre-kt and I was pretty much clueless! These days I’d solve the “hats too big problem” by just making him one.  In fact making hats are pretty much my “go to” solution for sewing for the men/boys in my life! I think I’d pretty much forgotten all the other boys suitable patterns we’ve included in One Thimble until I sat down to write this blog post!
