More About This Title Thimbles & Things


Japanese style–inspired projects that beginners and sewing enthusiasts can make

Thimbles & Things collects together a dozen projects that are inspired by Japanese style—colorful, delicate, and intricately designed. Projects include a variety of thimble designs, needle cases, a cute sewing cache, pin cushions, a sew-and-go kit, and more. Drawings and instructions help new sewers stitch-by-stitch along the way, and each project can be made quickly, easily, and with delightful results.
