One Thimble E-zine: Issue 7

It's that time again, where we get to bring you what I think is THE top sewing e-magazine around. I love that we've been able to partner with Jen of Ainslee Fox and One Thimble to introduce you all to this Aussie gem. The e-zine is packed to the brim with new patterns, articles and features from designers all over the globe and is well worth every penny! I'm going to turn it over to Paige for the review of Issue 7 of One Thimble and then after that you'll get to see what our other reviewers sewed up!

Today, I’m here to review the new issue 7 of One Thimble, an Australian E-Zine for sewing enthusiasts.  This edition has 385 pages which includes a range of articles, printable pattern pages, pdf patterns, and an interview.  There are color photos of the article and pattern contributors.  You can also learn more about the pattern designers by reading their bio information.  It’s great when you can put a face with the name.  

There are 10 pdf patterns; some for boys, girls, and women.  Here is a list of the patterns in this issue.

  1. Down the Rabbit Hole Applique

  2. Amenity Top

  3. Everest Pants

  4. Juke Box Dress

  5. Bedtime Buddies

  6. Prince Hoodie

  7. Princess Hoodie

  8. Li’ Red Capelet & Furry Friends Hoods

  9. Tahlia Skirt

  10. Alyss Dress

Each pdf pattern comes with step by step instructions and multiple color photos to guide you through the construction process.  Both metric and imperial measurements are included. There is also a pattern lift out page which includes a quick reference for the pdf patterns.  It is like a mini table of contents where you can see where to find the size guide, fabric requirements, print guide, pattern pieces, and the e-zine tutorial page for each pdf pattern.  

“One Thimble” provides a range of articles. These articles are divided into different sections.  

  • “For Sewing Pleasure” has 7 articles which  focuses on inspiration and trends. This is a fun section and I really like looking at new products and getting different ideas. There is also a page of offers and discounts.  Woo hoo!  

  • The “Sewing Techniques & Tutes” section has 11 articles which provides informative information and tutorials for different techniques.  

  • There are 6 articles in the “Handmade Business” section which has a lot of useful information for business owners.

All patterns have a cottage license and the e-zine is compatible with mobile devices.   

I had a chance to make 2 patterns from this E-Zine.  Here are my versions of the Juke Box Dress and the Tahlia Skirt.  Both are very stylish and went together quickly and easily.  

I have definitely become a fan of One Thimble and I can’t wait to try out some of the other patterns.  I think a lot of people are going to enjoy this issue and all that it has to offer.  Be sure to get your copy!

Happy Sewing!
