Scissor Holder Pouch
Project by Stephanie Marsh
You will need
2 pieces of fabric, 10 ¼ by 8 ¾ inches 1 piece heavy weigh iron on interfacing 10 ¼ x 8 ¾ inches threads
1. Iron the interfacing onto the wrong side of one of the pieces of fabric.
2. With right sides together and raw edges aligned, sew together, using a ¼ inch seam allowance, leaving a 2 inch gap on the bottom edge for turning.
3. Trim corners to reduce bulk and turn right sides out.
4. Give it a good press, pressing in the raw edges where you turned it through.
5. With the inside fabric facing you bring the bottom right hand corner up to the left hand side, as in picture below.
6. Press well.
7. Unfold, then take the top left hand corner and lay the left aide on the crease line you have just made (see below). Press along the fold line.
8. Refold the first crease over the top of this one.
9. Then fold back on itself to along what was the bottom edge with the first crease line. Give a good press.
10. Using a larger stitch on your machine, I used a 3.5, stitch along the two long edges, just far enough to catch in the two edges of the fabric. This will also close the turning gap.
11. Pull the tread ends through to the back and cut, or tie off and cut if you don’t have a reverse or stay stitch on your sewing machine.
If you wish, you can add a hanging loop in the top right hand corner with a piece of ribbon, it would be best to add this when you sew the two pieces of fabric together.
