First up- the Posse Cadet Cap and Visor by Apple+Fig. I sewed up a size medium, view D wide peak visor for my seven and a half year old daughter. I have to admit that I’ve never made a hat or visor, before. I usually sew clothes and anything with interfacing kind of scares me! Ha! HOWEVER, I found the Posse Cadet Cap and Visor by Apple+Fig was the perfect introduction to hatmaking. The step-by-step instructions with color photographs held my hand and adequately guided me through the process. While I used cotton woven fabric from my stash, I was able to find the necessary interfacing at my local Wal-Mart (The pattern even includes a section on types of interfacing and possible alternatives. I HIGHLY suggest reading through the tutorial BEFORE sewing! ;-). I am so pleased with the end result and my daughter LOVES her new hat! She is currently wearing it… inside… on a rainy day… while folding laundry… the Posse Cadet Cap and Visor by Apple+Fig is that good! Hahahaha!

Next, I sewed up the “Share a Sewn Gift Project” Winner of the Scrap Buster Category- Kelli’s teacher gift pack.

Holiday season is right around the corner and I know I have a lot of people to thank and remember along the way. Teachers, bus drivers, coaches and co-workers, oh my! Requiring minimal fabric and supplies, the teacher gift pack is the perfect way to not only use up fabric scraps, but it’s a quick and easy to sew up, too! Instructions include multiple ways to sew up/finish the wine coasters and quick, simple instructions to sew up the coffee cozy. Everybody wins with these great scrap busting teacher gift pack patterns!

Priced at just $25 au, One Thimble, Issue #17 E-Zine is a great value for the amount of included patterns, articles and advice. The photography is stunning and really helps show off all of the gorgeous patterns! I can’t wait to sew up more patterns from the latest issue of One Thimble, Issue #17!
