Happy Sunday, all!
Continuing our trend of decorative and useful tools, this week we are focusing on a small but essential bit of sewing paraphernalia: the humble thimble. I don’t often have sewing projects that call for extra finger protection but when I do, it’s because the fabric is super thick or stubborn. I have a traditional old-fashioned metal thimble that was my grandmother’s but I think my idea of thimbles has been thoroughly expanded by those available online! First and foremost, I adore the simple and tasteful design on this leather thimble by Holly Hawk Designs:
I also appreciate the ability to customize designs on wooden thimbles available for purchase from Becky’s Craft Shack:
If you want something soothing and elegant, this Nephrite Jade thimble from Jade Mine Canada is just gorgeous:
By far one of the coolest and most unique thimbles I found, though, was this blown glass one by Eighth Planet Glass:
I may give one of these a whirl someday when my Grandma’s gets a well deserved retirement. Next week, I think I will give my crochet tools some love, starting with some amazing yarn bowls!
