Dig out a thimble or find one at a thrift store.  With just a few simple steps, you can make this little garden lovely!

Step 1: What You'll Need

Here's what you'll need:  Thimble, flower (use a small one or make one with fabric), piece of felt, chain or ribbon, jump rings, clasp, thread and needle, poly stuffing, lace, glue, pliers (not pictured but you'll need them to open and close the jump rings), a tool to make the holes in the thimble.  I used a great steel hole punch from Fire Mountain that I use to drill holes in coins, but you could also use a drill with a small bit.  Be careful if you use a drill!
this is the cutest project ever! I am going to have to try this :)
Beautiful!<br>Now i have to go get some thimbles!
This is the very best! I am sharing this with my friend who has a Christmas gift exchange every year. She is from a family of quilters! I love this. I am making me one as well. Thank you for sharing such a cute idea. I am a subscriber that will be watching your entries a little closer. So fun!
