Scissor holder

A very talented friend of mine, Francoise, shared her scissor holder with us on our stitching list. I have made the same scissor holder and thought I would show it to you. It was going to be the idea for the next project with my quilt group but as I wrote at the beginning of the month, I changed my mind at the last minute. Not everyone likes to stitch in the group so I thought this was not a good project to use. Instead, I am making a patchwork holder for a larger pair of scissors. I will share that with you during the first week of June along with placing a tutorial online showing how to make it. For now, here is the holder for a pair of embroidery scissors.

Oooh, Heidi,
Please add me to your list. I would love to know how to make this too. It's so beautiful just like everything else Francoise makes. Those little bow buttons are just gorgeous.
