This month of October Liz Sew Along is Thimble Cases/ Keep.
Although she has some really pretty links to sew I found 2 chttp://liz-moments.blogspot.com/2012/10/sewingroom-sewalongthimble-case.htmlrocheted ones. well I found pictures. Looking at the pictures I tried to creat my own pattern. I think I did ok
The first is a small hat, it can actually be a needle case as well. The one I saw on the internet was redThe photo of it closed is a bad file now. I only have the photo of it open.
Of course I had to crochet my in blue to match my room. I just crocheted around my thimble for size then made the brim. Increasing each round.
The bottom part just a circle.
Added some felt and needles
This I saw also on the Internet. How cute is this. Carnation thimble holder
I don't think I did too bad trying to make my own from a photo.
Again I crocheted around one of my thimbles and then crocheted layers of ruffles.
This old thimble is green to match the flower
The thimble does stay in so I can hang it
I am holding the string
Both of these was so easy to make.I am sure I will make at least one of the ones Liz's posted . They are adorable. I just have been in a crocheting mood here lately.
