I struggle to throw away scraps, these are from binding that I made for Siblings Together quilts and scraps from a bee block for the same cause:
So the plan was to turn these into a scissor cozy using this great tutorial. It came together really well, I topstitched the zip in place which wasn’t in the tutorial but it worked fine.
So of course I needed to make another slightly larger one, I printed the pattern off at 110% hoping that that would be big enough. I used most of the Sew Cherry scraps that I have left: I love how this has turned out:
It’s big enough for my large scissors and pinking shears but doesn’t look much bigger than the original cosy.
I then decided this would make a great Christmas present for my mum, so using left over Tule hexies (I really think this is the last of them!) I made one for her:
I used Tule on the inside too:
That’s the way it goes sometimes when you have a FQ bundle of fabric for a quilt; the ‘scraps’ can go on forever!
This was on my 4th quarter finish along list so I’ll be linking up when the time comes.
And it’s also Scraptastic Tuesday so I’m linking up with Nicky and Leanne:
