My Scissor Keeper
Designer: Danielle Flanders

When I received the Cosmo Cricket fabric, I wanted to make something that had to do with sewing or crafting, so I looked on-line and found a cute owl that holds your scissors! I thought it was adorable, so I had to give one a try. 


Glue Glider Pro and Fabric Bond Adhesive
Felt pieces in orange, red, and yellow
May Arts Ribbon
Cosmo Cricket Fabrics
2 brown buttons
white thread
your scissors and an iron.
My Scissor’s Keeper instructions:

1. Cut the back piece out of the red and white material using the pattern provided. Place it onto a piece of orange felt. Trim around edges of felt with pinking shears. Adhere material to felt with Fabric Bond.
2. Cut background for eyes out of yellow felt using pattern provided. Arrange 2 brown buttons so they fit inside the scissor holes and stitch them down to the yellow felt with white embroidery floss. Adhere finished felt piece to body of owl with Fabric Bond.
3. Cut pocket from the scissor fabric using pattern provided. Use pinking shears. Back with felt to give it some bulk using Fabric Bond to adhere it to the felt piece. (Any color of felt that won’t show through the material is fine to use on this piece. I used yellow felt.)
4. Cut a border from orange felt that is the length of the pocket. Adhere to top edge of pocket.

5. Place scissors in and machine stitch on left and right sides of pocket.
6.  Cut a left and right wing from ruler material using pattern provided. Lay these onto red felt and trim around them with pinking shears leaving some red felt showing all the way around the wings.

7.  Adhere finished felt piece to body of owl.
8.  Wrap May Arts ribbon around scissors and tie in a bow. Leave a long end. I loose my scissors on my messy table a lot, so this is why I have a long ribbon tied to them!
9. Finish off by adding any pins or needles to the wings!
