I’m always searching for my scissors or throwing them all in a basket together. I’m sure that can’t be the best way to take care of them, so I made a handy dandy scissor case to keep them all together and safe. There’s even a printable pattern to make it easy for you!
- Pattern printed and assembled. Download it here:
- 2 coordinating woven fabrics
- sewing machine and thread
- Fusible interfacing
Cut out the Pieces:
- Print, assemble and cut out your pattern
- Cut 2 mirrored images of fabric – one of each fabric
- Cut 2 mirrored images of fusible interfacing
Putting it Together:
- Lay out both fabric pieces wrong sides up and iron your fusible interfacing onto the wrong sides of each piece per the instructions for your interfacing.
- Place your pattern pieces right sides together lining up all edges.
- Pin together leaving a 2″ opening for turning it right side out.
- Starting on one side of your opening, using a 1/4″ seam allowance, backstitch a couple of times then sew around the entire perimeter until you get back to 2″ away from your starting point and backstitch again.
- Clip around the curves and “v’s” and trim off corners making sure not to cut any stitching.
- Pull the fabric through the opening and turn right side out.
- Push out all corners and edges.
- Turn the edges of the opening in and press, then continue around the entire piece pressing all edges.
- Pin the opening closed, then topstitch along the opening with a scant 1/4″ seam allowance.
- Continue to topstitch all the way around the perimeter.
Fold it up:
- Set out your pattern piece with the taller side on the left and the shorter side on the right. (fig. a.)
- Pick up the right (shortest) side and fold it over to meet the left side. Press. (fig a. and b.)
- Still working with the shorter side, fold it back over to the right and line up the edges. Press. (fig c. and d.)
- Lift up the right side flaps and fold the left side (taller) flap under the right and line the edge up with the crease. Press. (fig e.- i.)
- Lay the right flap back over on top and press. (fig j. – k.)
- Pin along both sides from the top edge of the pockets down and along the bottom. (fig. l.)
- Sew around the 3 sides with a 1/4″ seam allowance trying to sew along the previous stitching. (fig. l.)
