Japanese Thimble Making

After drooling over all the glorious needlework at Ma Mercerie blog I decided to try my hand at Japanese thimble making this weekend, using the instructions kindly posted on the blog.

Overall, I’m quite pleased. Sure, my stitching needs work (and I’d use a totally different thread next time), but for a first attempt I think it’s pretty good.  And it was a lot of fun to do (and a nice size for an afternoon stitching project), so I’d make more – in fact I definitely will, as I’ve now ordered a kit from the Ma Mercerie Etsy shop!

Just popped to Ma Mercerie to see what all the fuss was about, and I must say that your thimble is well up to standard. Certainly something I wouldn’t be able to do! Well done!

Thank you! I’ve made a couple more since then, and I’m really enjoying them
