Under the Sea and Mermaid sewing adventures


I don’t know how they do it!? Ever issue just keeps getting better and better. I’ve been an article contributor to One Thimble magazine for a few years now and each time I’m researching handmade goodies to include in my gift guide article I’m always amazed and excited about the theming for each issue. I think to myself surely they can’t beat this issue with the next release BUT… Oh my gosh, I’m in love with Issue 16!

Mermaids, mermaids and more mermaids! Soft pastels, flowing maxi dresses, spring shorts and tanks, super cool  merman and a dress up pattern every little girl will want!

Welcome to an ‘Under the Sea’ adventure..
