I've been getting more obsessed with my scissor collection and within that collection i have a few pairs of small scissors.
I really need to have a few small pairs move around with me to other rooms when i'm doing crochet or small hand sewing projects.
I want each pair to be protected and look cute too.
I decided to make a cute scissor pouch to protect them and wanted you to have a copy of the pattern too!
To get a copy of the pattern pieces you can download them here
You'll need to cut:
2 exterior pouch pieces
1 exterior flap piece
2 lining pouch pieces
1 lining flap piece (cut this mirror image to the exterior piece)
2 fusible fleece pouch pieces
1 fusible fleece flap piece
2" of 1/4" elastic or you could use a hair tie.
and you'll need 1 adorable 1/2" button
The seam allowance for this project is 1/4"
I begun this project with realising i've lost all the hair ties i had for sewing projects, but 1/4" elastic works just as well.
Once you've cut out all your pieces, fuse the fusible fleece to the back of the exterior pieces of the pouch and flap.
put both flap pieces right sides together and stitch around the sides and bottom.
Clip the corners and turn right side out, top stitch.
Attach the elastic 2 inches from the top of on the left hand side one pouch piece.
Place the exterior pieces together and stitch around the sides and bottom, leaving the top open.
Turn right side out. Mark the middle of the pouch and the middle of the flap. match these marks and baste stitch at 1/8".
You want to ensure that the flap is right side down on the back side of your pouch, so that the straight edge of the flap will be on the elastic side when flipped over the top.
Mark on the wrong side of the lining a 2 inch turning whole on the side. do not stitch between these two marks.
stitch around the sides and bottom (except between the mark) and leaving the top open.
Place the exterior pouch pieces on the inside of the lining pieces right sides together, matching the side seams.
Sew around the top of the pouch.
Pull the exterior of the pouch through the hole in the lining.
Close up the hole in the lining with an edge stitch.
Push the lining into the pouch and press well. Top stitch
Attach a button on the front of the flap for the closure.
You have made a cute scissor pouch, it will fit a few small pairs of scissors.
