One Thimble, Issue 12 Review

Can you believe it's time for another issue of One Thimble?  I got to preview this one (and try a couple of the patterns) and I must say, it's a fantastic read!  With 10 pdf patterns (and some tutorials)  and seemingly countless articles, there is sure to be something for everyone. 

The two patterns I got to try out are both by "Molly and Mama."   Unfortunately, my little model couldn't make it and I only have pictures of the finished items. 
The Darling Daisy bag is simply adorable!  I chose to leave off the flower "face," but may add it on later with a pin as it will make a wonderful brooch!

I also stitched up the Flutterby Kite. I chose to piece my front a  little differently to use up the dots I found in my stash and love the way it came out.  I also left off the trim going around the kite to see how it looks (quite nice ;) ) without it.

Over all, both of these patterns were so easy to make! The directions were clear and I would definitely recommend either of these for a beginner. They would even be a great project to work on with a child!

What else might you find in this issue?
TONS of great info! Including how to make your own sew-in magnets-I do want to try that one!
Awesome looking clip/headband holder tutorial--I'm seriously thinking of making this one for myself, lol! Who says it can't hang in my closet? ;)
Tips for spring cleaning your stash.  As if you could ever have too much fabric!  This article has actually inspired me to take another look at my hoard  collection after the kiddos have gone back to school next week!

There's even an article that walks you through making your own fabric with what you only thought was meant for the trash!  As if  I need another reason to save everything, lol!  I hope I follow through with this one, I can't wait to make a cute little zipper pouch with fabric I have made myself!  (Thanks for the inspiration!!)

Here's the schedule so you can follow along with the rest of the OT tour!
