  1. Well the answer to the riddle is a thimble. But the shape reminds me of a pocket -- the kind that womenfolk used to wear under their aprons.

  3. I was thinking it might be a little scissor pouch or thimble holder, but the riddle sounds more like a bee skep...
    How fun!
    Blessings, Patti

  7. The only thing I can think of that would be filled with flesh (and not a thimble) is a bracelet.

  14. A sewing huswife. It will be a gorgeous treasure. I love how you repurpose vintage and antique items. I inherited a lot of antique lace and linens and I am inspired by your work. Some day I will be brave enough to attempt using them. Ruth

  27. A ribbon based THIMBLE organizer/hanger?

    ReplyDelete
  28. A thimble is the answer to the riddle, but I think that your making a thimble keep!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I thought I posted earlier... came back to see the answer. :-) Well... whatever they are going to be - they are darling!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think it's a thimble pouch worn around the neck.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thimble, thimble keep, thimble pouch, thimble pocket, and still no correct answer! "All of these put together"... multiple thimble keeps on a pincushion?? LOL!!What's that called??

    ReplyDelete
  32. Well, it reminds me of those soft leather thimbles that fit over the finger. If you combine it with a button from the card on one side the button could be used as a hard center at which to push on the needle to pearce it through the item your sewing on. The flesh is the finger placed in the barrel opening and it is a live beause it is competing a task.
    Okay, I'm tired and it is only a guess.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Also looks like the little vase bag that your Permelia Doll was holding on your selling sight.

    ReplyDelete
  34. mmmmmm I think may be it is a thumb/ finger protector that is made into a chatelaine for around the neck so you don't lose it ... the tape is for the chatelaine bit and the thread is used to sew it on and the buttons too :)
    just a stab in the dark ...lol love mouse
    who is also intrigued as to what the proper answer may be :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. It's a needle punched pocket for your tiny little bears to wear.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I was thinking so hard, but darn I sure could not come up with the answer. Thimble!? Sheesh. Good job confounding me. Karmen
