You know those little tops on hairsprays and other styling products? I found one on the washer one day, put it on my finger, don't ask why, and thought, hey, this is just like a thimble!:) You just need to dress it up a bit before using. It works great and is way prettier than the thimbles I actually bought.

Total Time: Under 20 minutes


  • styling product top
  • plastic ribbon/fancy trim
  • flatback gem
  • glue gun
  • scissors


  1. Wrap your trim around your top and decide where to cut. The ends should just meet.
  2. Glue this to your top. If you are using a lacey or non-solid trim, do not put too much hot glue down, otherwise it will ooze through.
  3. Glue a flatback gem to the top of your top.:)
  4. All set. Now go sew something and try it out!
