Scissor Pocket- Monthly Finishing Challenge
July's Monthly Finishing Challenge was to produce some kind of scissor keeper. I wasn't really sure how to go about the pinkeep with pocket ones (can anyone recommend a tutorial?) so I went for the pouch option.
The stitched piece has been hanging around for ages - it's from a DMC/RSN hardanger kit, and I didn't really know what to do with it - I didn't want to frame it, and there's only so many cushions one can have, even if it went with my decor, which is doesn't!
I lined the square with white felt and then folded it together and stitched it with mattress stitch so the seam looks invisible. I then drew threads out of the trimmings to make the tassel, and the fastening is a press stud.
