    Cut your eye pins down to the height of your thimble. You want just the head to peek out over the rim.

    Apply glue around the inside of the thimble, just a centimeter or so down from the rim. Place your needle felted ball in quickly so you'll have the most time to fix any mistakes as the glue will dry quickly. Then put pins in it!
