The Thimble Necklace Tutorial

I've been thinking about this project for a very long time. Today it was sticky with heat and humidity and in the middle of  trying to get my house clean, I just dropped everything and did it. I absolutely love it. I love it so much, that I want to show you how to make it.

Supplies:
Sewing Pins in with the color heads you like
Metal Thimble
Coordinating threads. (my thread came from the edge of some fraying fabric I adore.)
Hot Glue Gun
Tiny Drill bit and Drill


Step One:
Drill a small whole directly below the lip of the thimble. Watch your fingers and go slow!


Step Two:
Fill the thimble 1/4 of the way with hot glue. Let the glue cool slightly and start placing your pins however you wish. I'm very much into pink right now, so most of my pink pins were towards the front. You need to work quickly to get them placed how you like them as the glue will cool quickly. Adding little bits of glue at a time, move your pins around until you are satisfied. Be careful not to hold onto the thimble as it will get very hot as you squeeze in more and more glue.

Step Three:
When your thimble is 3/4 of the way full, ball your threads and place them into the glue. You can use an extra pin to arrange the threads and make sure they are attached to the glue.

Step Four:
If you would like to attach your thimble charm to a chain you will need to place a ring in the hole you drilled. I opted to attach mine to a length of colored hemp with a simple loop through the hole.

Step Five:
Wear it with pride!

I hope you enjoyed making this charm as much as I did! I guess now I have to get back to cleaning. sigh.

P.S. If you don't want to make one yourself because of the heat and humidity at your house you can buy one here

  42. I have 3 thimbles that I received after my grandfather, who was the Taylor in a very small town, passed away many, many years ago. I've just been holding onto them, not sure what to do with them until now!! I have two sisters and plan to make a necklace for each one of us. I'm nervous about messing up, so I'm going to buy a thimble to practice on. I do have a question. Do you have a suggestion on how I can get around drilling a hole in the thimbles, as I really don't want to do that. Thank you for sharing this lovely "thimble" idea.
