This weekend I made a thimble case for a friend...with silk ribbon roses on the sides. The case is hard plastic lined, not with cardboard which would be an issue if it got wet. The liner is covered in wool felt, not craft felt. It should last a long, long time!
The inside has a wool covered bead that is secured to the bottom. This will hold the thimble in place and should keep it from rolling around.
The little closure is a stone bead in pink with a pink elastic band. It was the only little elastic band I had...and wasn't it fortunate that it was pink...just perfect. I had such fun making this little case that I did two more for the Etsy Shoppe.
The first has lilac and roses on the case.
And the next has SRE sunflowers. I have enough plastic liners to create about six more...if I can think of some embroidery ideas for them.
