Pink Thimble for Pink Saturday

There is a group called Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly and although I am not a regular participant I made this thimble in pink for this Saturday. Please visit Beverly's blog from here and you can find a list of the people who posted something pink today.

You may recognize the design as I have made several thimbles and pin cushions but this time I changed the way to place the frames. I used to place it so that it looks like the four petals flowers are sitting on the frames, but this time they are formed around the flower instead. It was not intentional, as a matter of fact, I wanted to form double frames in gold but miscalculated the number of stitches and ended up like this, although I am quite happy with it.

Since I used gold thread, the thimble is not suitable for actual sewing because gold thread is very fragile and easily damaged. I am still a tad sceptical about purely decorative thimbles but I can call them collectibles, can't I?


  1. Happy Pink Saturday! Love your thimbles.

  2. How beautiful. I am a thimble collector but I've never seen one like this.

  3. Happy Pink Saturday!
    I can not imagine making something as small as thimble....your stitches are so dainty and I like the design and color of today's.
    Thank you so much for sharing!

  4. Beautiful! You could call them collectibles. I've given one to my mother, who used to sew when her eyes were better. She wears it as jewelry which prompted me to make a bracelet!

  5. Pretty Chloe!

    Happy Pink Satruday!!

  8. Hi Chloe, I've been trying to order the thimble starting kit and a second one, but Etsy is keeping me error message with my sign in. I will keep trying again - Thanks Nat
