I have enjoyed One Thimble ever since I helped test the Call Ajaire Raglan Party Dress pattern way back when my youngest was tiny. I revel in the anticipation of the upcoming issue, the reveal of the patterns and the engaging articles. All of this means I am very happy to join the blog tour team for issue 22.
Mr Bombles was very grumpy that my last sew was not for him, so when I saw I saw the options I knew that I needed to sew him a Made by Jacks Mum Beep Beep Raglan. I’ve loved those side panels and pockets since the pattern first released and you can’t beat a good hack so the Beep Beep cardigan was just the thing for us.
As per the hack instructions we sized up for extra growing room, sewing a size 10 when he really measures an 8 for width and a 10 for length – but the speed he is growing its just as well.
The side stripe is a great way to make your favourite fabric go further…. those mountains were bought for me! But now we can both have a share in the pretties.
This hack is a good one if you have never hacked before (hacking is an alteration to the construction of an existing pattern). The full instructions are in One Thimble, easy to follow and its a great excuse to have a play with your fabrics and your snaps. I am a bit of a stash builder so when it came to browsing my supplies for the right colour snaps I was spoilt for choice…. and did the only thing a person can do… choose them all….
And with a Beep Beep hack under our belts I am eyeing up which of the other patterns to sew next… if it weren’t coming into winter then definitely the Oceaan Shorts from the Eli Monster, but maybe Mr Bombles will strike it lucky and I will sew him a pair of Everest Pants from Gracious Threads instead.
