Let's face it, no matter how hard I try to sew like a civilized person, I prick my fingers more than a phlebotomist will ever manage in my lifetime. Ideally a thimble would protect me, but because I'm just that bad at sewing, I have decided they're nothing more than nifty finger jewelry. So let's go all out and get one that costs real money.
This is a sterling silver nineteenth century thimble in excellent condition. Let's poke ourselves in style, shall we? (Or, there's only one of these, so let's see who will be left to use an awful plastic thimble from a stocking stuffer sewing kit.)
Buy through SeaGlassPrimitive's Etsy shop for $40.00.
