    Hi Izy

    Just been playing around with a piece of paper to make a patter for my large scissors and wondered if you do anything with the bottom to stop the point of the scissors poking through.

    Hi Margaret,

    Well when you have edged your fabrics then folded into the zigzag you stitch close to the edge down each side of the fold to the point, this will prevent the scissors from poking through me thinks!! :D

    You could use leather scraps where the points are going to be.

    Wow Izzy, I LIKE that pattern!!

    Our quilt guild gave everyone a fat quarter and told us to make a gift for someone out of it for Christmas. We could use all of the fat quarter, or part of it, or just a teeny piece -- well, I think this is what I'm making!!!!

    Hi Izy, this is just what I been looking for as well. A quilt-in I recently attended was giving some away as door prizes and they looked fabulous. Where your top is rounded though, their's was pointed and was folded over and secured with a button. -another way of finishing it off. Also one of the pockets held a mini needlecase with needles and safety pins, and another pocket held a folded tape measure -all done up as a lovely gift.
    :lol:
