Sombrero needle- and thimble case

I wasn’t supposed to make another post today, but creativity took over on this Easter Sunday and I thought you wouldn’t mind getting an extra “Easter Egg/present

I absolutely adore this little dainty needle and thimble case. The funny thing is, that I didn’t know anything like this existed, until a few hours ago, when someone on Facebook wanted to know if there was a pattern.

  1. My Mum had one that was variegated thread, no picots and the rim rolled up a tiny bit. There was a joined flat round for the back and the felt went between the two crocheted pieces, thimble in the crown of the sombrero. Thanks for posting now I can have one too.

    1. I’m glad you like it Rebecca. At some point I’m gonna make one that looks like a woman’s summer hat with flowers and maybe a thin silk ribbon…..or you could make a cowboy hat. Have fun with the pattern xx
