Scissor Case Finish

Hello again, stitchy friends! I’ve been MIA for a little while because I’ve been working hard on the latest round of Sock Madness. The finished socks are fabulous, and I will be sharing them tomorrow.

Today, though, I’m sharing the scissor case that I stitched for an exchange through Virtual Threads, the online guild associated with the Embroiderers’ Association of Canada.

The pattern is Quaker Accessories, designed by Esther F. of Brodeuse Bressane. It is available through her etsy shop here. I stitched it using some blue silk from my silk odds and ends drawer (it is probably from Dinky Dyes) and some gold Petite Treasure Braid, on a new colour of hand-dyed linen from Enchanting Lair called Dijon. It is a darkish parchment yellow with darker blueish areas.

I lined the interior with some light blue cotton, and stitched on a snap closure.

    That’s so pretty – love that that shade of blue in particular! It’s so nicely put together too.

  3. I have decided, after stabbing my finger for the last time – reaching for them, I must have a scissor case. Yours created and received are both the best.
