A Case for Shears

Here is the start of a new project. I am going to make a case for my 10″ sewing shears. I am embroidering the Elna’s decorative stitches down the white stripes of a piece of red ticking. There are a few more rows to sew before construction of the case begins. I starched the fabric instead of using any stabilizer. It was just less expensive that way. I plan to make a matching pin cushion and needle case.

  2. I really like the look of the black decorative stitches on the ticking. A great idea!

  3. Amazing! And a lot of work. Looking forward to seeing the final products.

  4. Yes, yes! I agree with the previous commentators….absolutely lovely. When I first saw the picture – I thought – what awesome fabric, I wonder where she purchased it. Very creative thinking.

    Now to wait for the finished picture(s)….
