Snippets from my Sewing Room


~ Introducing ~

SNIPPETS: Simple projects from my Sewing Room;
Gift ideas and Tutorials for hand-made doo-dads
using a few scraps and notions.

Today's "Snippet" is sooooo simple ~ and makes a great little addition
to your sewing room or a gift for sewing friends! 

It's a simple Scissor Pocket and served as the perfect "Baby Shower" gift when I welcomed my new Babylock Melody sewing machine last year!  Guests chose 5" squares and could test out one of the fancy stitches on the new machine as they made their scissor holder.  They each received a pair of cute little nippers to go in their new scissor holder.   Luckily, I remembered to snap a couple of pictures of the last group:

(My friend Debbie, her two daughters, and two of my girls)
 

Would you like to make one?  
See the full tutorial and printable pattern of this cute little Snippet for Riley Blake Designs' Cutting Corners!

Come to think of it, I've already posted a couple of sweet Snippets (Needlenook, Rosebud Wristlet Pincushion) recently.  It looks like I need to organize a page and reference them all together, make a blog button,  maybe try a linky party.  I bet I know where I could gather some prizes...  Meanwhile, hope you'll join me here Mondays from now until Christmas for the next little "Snippet" from my sewing room!

  9. I needed something to hold my scissors when I was on a trip last month. I kept having to put the scissors away (so they wouldn't get lost in the car, etc) then having to dig them out when I needed to use them. What a pain. Your scissor holder would be wonderful.

  20. That scissor holder is a great idea and truly a special gift for friends who enjoy sewing. This week I am working on a Christmas table topper and am wondering if I should try hand quilting rather than machine for a change...

  25. my sons girlfriend is a horse and green fanatic. Her sewing machine has no cover. So I am making a green cover with a paper pieced horse to go on the front.

  26. I am really enjoying your little tutorials on these small projects. I am finishing up two quilt tops for me. I only have one quilt for my bed and I decided to make another for Halloween and then thought I should have one for winter too so I started a second one. I hope to finish both tops this week. Then I am going to make your little wrist pin cushion and some of these sissor holders for my sewing group.

  27. What have I been doing in my sewing room - trying to clean up the disaster! But I have been working on applique in the evenings, in front of my fav tv shows of course! I love your tutorials, keep them coming please!

  28. That's a super cute little scissors holder Deonn. Great tutorial as usual as well. Thank you.

    Lately in my sewing room I've been trying to find it. I hit an awesome estate sale and at about $1/yd for quality quilting fabrics, we'll just say I showed no restraint. Oh wait, my husband said that to the women at the sale as he was so buried in his huge arms holding it that I had to start a pile on the table next to their checkout table. ha Hubby was awesome and washed/dried every bit of it and folded it up then brought it to my sewing room where it was stacked about 2 1/2 feet high in each of the THREE piles. Then my table was full and there was an entire trash bag of all white fabrics and a 32 gallon Rubbermaid bin full of even more. And there is more still on the floor too. Now I've been wading through it all to iron and fold it to put it away. I also have two boxes of magazines and very old patterns including old paper pieced patterns which include all of her quilting templates she's already cut out. No sewing going on here since I cannot see my cutting table and the entire floorspace in front of my sewing table is full of all this other stuff in the bins/boxes. I can't get to within about three feet of either table.

    Anyone want to sew my holiday gifts for me? LOL
