    Does anyone know where I can find a free pattern of a quilted scissor holder. Thought it would be a small project that we could do at one of our quilt club meetings.

    Thank you for looking Ruth I did find that one while searching on google but just want a scissor holder on its own. If you find anything like that I would really appreciate it.

    I have used quilted pot holders rolled in a cone shape and fastened with a button for scissor sheaths too.

    Our guild recently made a great scissor holder, which was roughly a rectange shape with one corner rounded off, you then folded it over and back on itself across the diagonal, which made three pockets - small - medium and large, I sadly didnt join in, but I can get the pattern on tuesday for you if you like :D Or I might have a play this evening and draw it for you, just let me know :D

    Hi

    I love this idea as it can be done by hand and embellished as much as you want to. I will make one of these as a example.

    Thank you

    Hi Izzy

    Please I would love to see the pattern and how to make it as it seems quite a simple one. People have been very helpful and hopefully when I get your idea I will have 2 diffeent types to show my club members. It is ice to have a choice as we are all different in our likes.

    Thanks

    Margaret

    Hi Margaret,

    I have made a rough copy out of paper to give you the general idea, it is very simple and you can make the size to fit your scissors. I have taken a few pictures to show you hold to fold it. You make it out of three layers just like a mini quilt, it can be plain or pieced or crazy patch looks good, two coordinating fabrics are best as they show side by side in places!!



    Now we fold the left hand side over to the first fold

    This is basically a rectangle shape with the top left corner rounded off

    This shows the right hand side folded over diagonally to the point (bottom right)

    final stages below.

    This creates three pockets large, medium and small, you can finish the edges anyway you please, you can bind it, overlock it, satin stitch, fancy stitches whatever you choose before you fold it. After the final fold, you must stitch down closely each long side to secure, you can embellish the top or embroider your name on its up to you :D

    Hope this gives you an idea of what its like, sorry I haven't actually made one yet :roll: :lol:

    Now fold it back on itself to the left hand side fold.

    Hi Izy

    Thank you for all the time you have taken over this. you said it is made like a quilt in three layers. Are they layered up with wadding then one fabric right side up and then second fabric on top of that right side down then sew a 1/4" around leaving a small gap and turn inside out. then oversew opening. then do the folding and slipstitch the folds down.

    Is this correct.

    Margaret

    Margaret, I think anything goes, you can use a thin wadding, or timtex or any stiff stabilizer, you can bind the three layers as a quilt, or overlock the edges, all prior to folding into the zig zag.

    I was just thinking.......(dangerous lol!!) Where the curved edge is .....if you made that bigger and left it as a point you could fold it down and use a stud to secure, then your scissors won't fall out making it great for transporting them to and from classes etc.......I will have to play again now with a bigger piece of paper lol!!!!!!!

    You can use Pellon® Peltex®72 for Timtex™*

    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
