One Thimble #13 {One Romper and Danny Donut}


One Thimble #13 is hitting my blog again today! Last week I shared my Orbis pants, which you can read about here. Today I’m sharing my make from the One Romper Pattern from Filles a Maman (FAM) and I used the Danny Donut Applique from Cut Sew Love.


Let’s start with the One Romper pattern.  I was super excited about the possibility of having a hip, urban vibe romper with this newest issue of One Thimble.  This pattern includes a short and a pant romper with short sleeves.  The romper is bathroom accessible with a shoulder closure to be unsnapped for quick breaks.  You may notice that my version doesn’t look like a romper, nor does it have shoulder snaps. If you would like to see a romper on this tour, check out this one from Swoodson Says.  The One Romper pattern also includes a t-shirt option.  Since this is a tour about the patterns, I decided to make the t-shirt version because I hadn’t seen a lot of them out there and you probably should know its an option.  You are welcome. 🙂  You should also know that the One Romper does not come with long sleeves when purchased through One Thimble, however, a free long sleeve download is available here. 

Construction for this tee was fairly typical.  If you choose to, you can add the shoulder and sleeve placket from the romper version to spice things up a bit.  My model was between chest sizes for this pattern, so I chose to size up as I made a cool weather top and we are just moving into the cool weather. I think I would have been fine with choosing the smaller size option.  Overall, we really like this top. My shirt is made with french terry and the neckband is a cotton lycra blend.

If you notice, this isn’t just a plain shirt, it has the  cutest little donut fella on it.  Cut, Sew, Love released the Kawaii Appliques which includes the Danny Donut pattern along with a few other applique designs.  I “do-nut” know about you, but we LOVE donuts at our house.  We watch the Krispy Kreme signs all the time to check and see if the red light is on so we can stop in for our free snack. If you aren’t familiar with Krispy Kreme, you should google it.  You can see the entire baking process within the store.  My girls love to watch the donuts being made.



For my Danny I used some embroidery floss to add the face details and free motion applique on my machine to do the outlining.  If you haven’t tried free motion applique, it is a fun way to add a little pzazz to your creations.  Here we made our donut look like our favorite Krispy Kreme, glazed with chocolate icing and sprinkles. This was such a quick applique and the other sets that come within this patterns are so cute too.  There is just something so adorable about food with faces.  I suppose that why Shopkins are so popular.

Now, don’t forget to make some stops along the tour to see all the awesomeness for Issue 13 of One Thimble.
