But choose we must and Susie and I have chosen a very similar design. Susie made Vicki's Fabric Creations design in stunning turquoise and white. Lots of room there with three nice sized pocket.

I didn’t have fusible batting so I used lightweight interfacing instead. It works just fine and the scissor case has a firmness that ensures the scissor points wont stick through.
The flowers were easily made. For the larger scissor keep I fused and stitched a fabric flower onto a circle of fabric and then made a yo-yo from the circle.
This was stitched to a larger yo-yo and a button placed in the centre. For the little scissor keep it was just as easy – I fused and stitched fabric flowers onto circles of felt before cutting out around the flowers. These too were stitched in place with a button.
I am thinking a scissor case would make a lovely little gift to pop in with a mug-rug when sending to a swap recipient. It is lightweight and unique – a perfect combination for a little something extra (you can find more mug-rug-swap gift ideas here). And if you are wondering whether there are any mug rug swaps coming up then watch this space ..... the Quilting Gallery and the Patchsmith may have some news for you very shortly.
Sew until Sunday when I will posting the next two Patchiqué blocks .......
