Acorn Scissor Case - Lizzie*Kate
I love this little scissors case - it's so cheerful and warm looking! I forgive it for being a pain to stitch - stitching over one on a pre-finished item isn't fun, let me tell you! I don't really like stitching over one these days anyway, and having to manipulate the fabric around to get to where you wanted to put in the needle - erk!
Anyway, I think it turned out nicely in the end, and this will be on my scissors now until mid December!
