Beaded Amulet Bags (free pattern)

Sometime back I received from an aunt and uncle 3 of my grandmother’s thimbles.  She quilted quite a lot as she had 11 children and needed warm blankets for the winter.  For a while I kept them in my jewelry box… thinking what  precious things they were… and then I saw a thimble bag crocheted for some lovely hussifs (CQ Mag Online…wonderful site!) and things just went from there.   I decided to crochet a beaded thimble bag for Grandmother’s thimbles then hang them inside a display.  The picture shows my thimble bag with the needle book I made at the same time.    And what does all this have to do with Beaded Amulets???   

My first thought when I came across this site at Knitting-and.com was that these fully beaded amulet bags would be lovely to hold a special thimble to display.  Then as I read on through the instructions and got to the bottom of the page, I was struck by the loveliness of the thoughts that were placed inside the bags and given as gifts to friends…       

Have a look….

    Such a lovely little bag for the thimble, as well as the needle book. I visited the site you referenced, and the contents of the beaded amulet bags is such a great idea.

    We knitters and crocheters are such warm and giving people.

    Warmest to you,

    I love your story. I’m disabled and my mother taught me when i was 16 to do all the crafts so that i would have something to do as the dr didn’t want me to do anything. My mother just died and she was my best friend and craft partner i’m sure she would have loved it too
    Thank you
