One Thimble is a digital sewing magazine, or ezine, and the issues contain PDF patterns, tutorials, sewing articles, tips, and lots of great content. You can see my previous posts about One Thimble here, here, and here. Issue 10 is looking to be the best one yet. I'm blown away by all the amazing contributors and patterns it has. I'm also excited to announce that I am a contributor in this issue as well! I'll include more details about that in a bit.

The appliques are all cut out of felt and I used freezer paper as the pattern suggests. This was my first time using freezer paper and I found it so easy and helpful to cut those intricate shapes out. I couldn't imagine tracing them all individually onto the felt and then cutting out.
I really enjoyed the mix of fabrics and textures used for this project. I used felt and quilting cotton as the pattern suggests, but I also used a natural canvas muslin for the back of each flag, which really gave them a good weight and body. I think the natural canvas would have worked for the front as well.
