Folded Fabric Scissor Holder-Rounded Top Version

Rounded Top Scissor Case

I have just made a refinement to the folded fabric scissor holder. The asymmetrical look at the top was a bit irritating so decided to take to my original pattern with the scissors and now have this rounded top version. I also made this one blunt across the bottom without the long point.

I have provided the pattern for you below. You will need to click on the pattern picture , when it opens up in the new window right click and save picture as. When you print the pattern out you need to make sure it is the size on the pattern, 8 3/8" wide or as close to that as you can get. Print it as large as your printer will allow and if you need to add extra around the outside to achieve the correct size you can do that.

I am not going to repeat the instructions as they are basically the same but I will proved new pictures of the steps, including how to do the blunt end.

Take the long edge on the left (with the turning hole in it) and tuck it in under the folded back  piece on the right

Trim the point off the folded folded up fabric to reduce bulk when top stitching

  5. This will be my second sewing project! Thanks for the idea!

  6. Hi Vicki, I've tried to save the pattern and have followed your instructions but do not get the + sign and I've hovered my mouse all over the pattern. What am I doing wrong? I'm using Google Chrome if that makes any difference.

    1. Hi Boo, I'm not Vicki, but I don't get the Blue Circle either. I use Firefox and I think it's close to Google Chrome. I just hover over the pattern above. Right Click. Select "Open in New Tab." That gives me the large version in the new tab. (I tried Right Click, then "view." I only got a small version to view.) Hope this helps!

  16. Thank you, I'm a beginner sewer and quilter and this was a nice pattern and project to make and to practice my skills. I made the blunt version but did find it helpful to refer back to the original pointy post, too.

  17. This is a great idea - never know what to put my scissors in when I want to take them on a sewing session away from home. Thank you for the tutorial.
