Brazilain Embroidery & Cross Stitch scissor fob

Scissor fobs are becoming very popular to stitch, they are small enough to be a quick stitching project.  They make a fun gift and are practical.   Recently I did a Scissor fob for At Home with Needlework, the magazine by Zweigart.

These pretty attachments are useful to keep from loosing your scissors.  Some stitchers like to keep a pair of scissors in every project bag – They can just pick it up, with everything needed enclosed.   Mesh bags  are prefect for your projects.  They are available in 4 sizes.  Set up your project in separate bags.   But back to Scissor fobs –  I didn’t realize how many Stitchers collected scissors.  I thought my having a 12-15 was alot.  Then I read a blog, that some ladies are VERY SERIOUS collectors – having well over 100, and they make a scissor fob for each.  They even have display cabinets for them.

This fob was fun to do, using my favorite Brazilian embroidery and incorporating Cross Stitch.

Zweigart banding is the base for the Scissor fob

It is available as a complete kit on my website:   http://www.ThreadsinBloom.com

It is getting late and I want to work on a new Brazilian embroidery design with Kalmia flowers.  I will show you some pictures of it progress in the next Blog.    Also, I am trying to keep ahead on doing the Huck embroidery bookmarks that I donate to the local Library to sell in their Little Gift Shop.   Not enough hours in the day to do all the stitching I would like to do;  but isn’t that the case for all Stitchers

I look forward to your comments ~
