One Thimble Magazine

Have you seen One Thimble e magazine? It’s a PDF sewing pattern digital magazine produced by the talented Jen from Ainslee FOX Handmade. Now I grew up learning to sew using the old Burda magazines and learnt so much trying out new things. So discovering this magazine has me excited for all newbie sewists everywhere! 

Issue 4 has just been released. Here’s a look at the cover –



Each issue contains 100+ pages of tutorials and articles as well as all the pattern pieces and instructions you need to make the clothing and home wares featured in that issue!
