The Pinky Promise Bag

One Thimble #19 is out! And that means that I have something to show you from this great digital sewing magazine. This issue is packed full with PDF patterns, articles and tips you will love!

Today I am part of the official One Thimble issue 19 blog tour. I was given the chance to pick one or two PDF patterns from this issue. The first I picked was the Pinky Promise Bag. Once and a while I get to make a bag and I love it! It's a good change from garment sewing. The second pattern I got to make was the Playtime dress, a super quick & easy sew that you will get to see later this week. 

The Pinky Promise Bag, pattern by Little Moo Designs for One Thimble #19.

- Striped twill from my local fabric shop, 
- Tapestry Violet, quilting cotton, by Riffle Paper Co. Menagerie collection for Cotton + Steel.

Sewing details:
I am in love with this cute little bag! My girls are disputing who will get to keep it but in all honesty I think this one is going to be mine (all mine! Insert evil laugh here, haha). It is quite small for a mom's bag but I am all about small bags these days and this one is big enough to carry all the absolute necessary items. (Finished size: 8” (20 cm) Wide x 7” (17cm) High x 2.5” (6cm) Deep (at the base)).

This bag includes an internal slip pocket , a cross body strap, and an optional side eyelet for headphones and a removable lip gloss holder. (I skipped these two last options.)

This pattern is geared towards the Advanced Beginner. If you never made a bag before I totally recommend this pattern. It's quite easy and the end result is really satisfying. I will definitely be making more!

This issue includes the following PDF sewing patterns:

  1. hahahaha I can imagine you laughing saying the bag is all yours and the girls won't get it hahaha The bag turned out gorgeous, Love the fabric combo you have chosen for it.

  2. This is a bit of an old fashioned horror movie. Something that plays as a dramatic movie first and then slowly becomes something else. losmovies Like "Rosemary" or "Exorcist" but without the high profile clout of those directors. This is two hours of an exploration of family tragedy and grief through characters struggling to cope.

    To say much of this film is to ruin it, so lashing praise onto certain aspects of it is the best one can do. Not to say this is a film with a big twist, it isn't. 123movies Toni Collette is fantastic as is no surprise at this point in her career. All the performances carry their own, including one I was unsure of at first but grew on me throughout -- Alex Wolff. The cinematography, rhythms and pacing, sense of place and space, and sound design are all superb and work in conjunction to create atmosphere and dread -- like a pit in your stomach that continues to grow and grow throughout. zmovies
