Waste not want not............


After having made the i-Touch case I decided to make something else with the leftovers. Whilst thinking, because I had not actually planned to make anything, I looked at the bag which I take to my sewing group and in there were these.................
A scissors case!! Along with expensive items not having cases, sharp sewing items do not seem to either. Unlike some of my hubby's tools which do come with something, even if it is only a plastic sleeve.

I use to make little drawstring bags for my scissors during my degree, but that was years ago, time to revive the usage.
So I quilted the leftovers to give thickness and stitched up the sides. Again I lined it with the same fabric. I made the case to the size of the fabric so no actual measurements were ever thought out.

I still had the buttons out and so I simply had to use one to add a little bit of detail.

I can get two pairs of scissors inside with wriggle room. The black handled set is a mid sized set of fabric shears and the other pair used to be a gold colour which has rubbed off with use but they are between shears and embroidery scissors. I take these everywhere and now with a bit more style.

I can sense some more of these being made, my needle case has just fallen apart too but I have had it for over 15 years!
