Craftsanity to the rescue! The spring issue had a great pattern for leather thimbles which could be sized to fit specifically, so I knew that I had to give it a whirl.
|I cut pieces of soft leather (I recycled mine from an old|
backpack), 2 pieces of felt, and 2 accent pieces (one fabric, one ribbon)
to approximately 2 1/4 inches long.
|I stitched the thee pieces together. I wasn't worried about|
a little overhang since I know that I would be trimming.
|I wound it around, trimmed, and stitched by hand. Not|
my prettiest job, but I can live with it.
|Ready to take on those knots now!!|
