One Thimble Issue 20 is out! Yay! And I’m happy to be back sharing something sewing related!

As usual the current issue of One Thimble* magazine is jam-packed with patterns, tutorials and articles. I’ve seen a glimpse of the patterns included and they look like fun projects! I had the chance to try out one of the projects, the Big Ocean appliques* from Swoodson Says.
I’ve been promising Silly Bean a gym bag for two years now, so I decided to use the applique on the bag. Silly Bean was originally not too keen on the applique choices (she’s not a big whale or shark fan) but she loves it now. I’ll have to make something for my nephew with the shark next since Miss V wants a whale on something too. I haven’t decided on what to make her though.
There’s a giveaway happening so be sure to enter at the bottom of this post!
Sew 20‘s Real Life, Real Sewing blog tour challenged participants to show that we actually wear the things we make. None of the staged photos, just actual photos of us going about our daily life wearing handmade.Roxanne of PenSeb&Rox and Sew 20 sent tour participants some questions to answer for her #realliferealsewing tour.
This year I decided I was going to use up as much as my fabric stash as possible as well as my pattern stash. I have tons of fabric and hundreds of patterns, yes hundreds. Luckily, at least half were obtained through testing, blog tours and winning some. I actually won quite a few in the past 18 months. Somewhere around 30, and most from giveaways through Pattern Revolution, yep. And most of the rest were purchased as part of bundles, I have a hard time resisting a bundle deal! (Side note: luckily, they’re PDF patterns for the most part and don’t take up physical space, anywho, moving on.)
So with that said I’m taking part in a bunch of stash busting challenges this year!
