One Thimble Issue 11 – Wild Things Baby Shoes

Please note: This post contains affiliate links as indicated by an asterisk. I absolutely love Issue 11 of One Thimble*, there are so many fun projects. When I was picking the pattern to try, I couldn't resist these Wild Things Baby Shoes*. I originally intended to make them as a gift for a friend's baby, but my children claimed them for their toys.

Laser Cut Appliques

Weeks ago I talked with Jennifer from 52 Lasers about the possibility of making laser cut appliqués. I ironed some Heat'n Bond* onto a dark gray Kona cotton and dropped it off with her. And then I promptly forgot about it. She recently brought it up again and asked if I would want to make something with the appliqués she cut.
