One Thimble, Issue 13

I’m a day late, but it’s my turn on the One Thimble blog tour!
There were some really, really great patterns to choose from this time around and I chose a not so new-to-me designer, Felt With Love. (I previously shared the 3-D puzzle animals.)

There are actually two patterns here today, Kawaii Felt Purse and Kawaii Felt Charms. In case you don’t know (I didn’t), kawaii means “cute.”  And these patterns certainly are cute!  So are all of the other sneaks I’ve seen from this issue of One Thimble! :)
It has finally started to feel like fall here, so I am digging all of the cool summery designs found in OT 13.

I deviated a bit with each pattern, but think I stayed true to the designer with each one.

When I read the description for the Kawaii Felt Charms pattern, I thought I read that instructions for paper clips were included.  Not so. I think I read bookmark and hair clip and interpreted "paper clip." LOL! Options actually include making a charm, bookmark, pencil topper, hair clip, headband, and brooch. Nonetheless, I had my heart set on making some attached to paper clips and I love the way they turned out!  That watermelon has been peeking out of my notebook all week.  I can’t help but smile when I catch a glimpse of it.

As for the Kawaii Felt Purse pattern, the bags remind me of those emoji pillows you see in stores. I couldn’t resist making a few modifications and turning them into pillows for my nieces!  The popsicle is made from felt, the sun uses minky and felt, and the watermelon uses quilters’ cotton.

Both of these patterns were very well written and I am already planning matching purses for the pillows.  My nieces will love them!

Just wait until you see what everyone else has made. You will be hoping for warmer weather soon! ;)
