The instructions for making these cute little thimble pouches are available online though a web site. I'd love to tell you the name of the website, but after clicking through all the site's web pages, even the home page, I still can't tell you the name of the site. Anyway, the instructions for these Irish waxed linen thimble pouches are on a page called Thimble Pouch. There are links to instructions to some adorable pincushions. The link to the Norwegian Chicken Pincushion is now obsolete, but I think I can figure it out.*
