I will never ever learn to sew with thimble. Over a years I have collected and tried out all sort of thimbles.
These old ones are coming from my husband’s mother – real vintage!
I have bought few new ones as well hoping they will fit me better,
and the one open – which I learned was used by man usually…
I have bought once this one from leather and a plastic reinforcement,
and few years ago I came across this silicon/jelly one
Still – no way I would learn to sew having thimble on my finger.
Any time I put it on – when my finger is really sore – I start to use the next finger.
Making hats and all couture sewing require a lot of hand sewing – this means my finger will need some special treatment. I am still looking for the best solution.
