A new design is always my best, favourite, most exciting thing I've done so often the earlier patterns are overlooked when I'm deciding what to take to the shows or doing a trunk show. They are so familiar to me I forget they are still new to many girls.
So my first reaction when the girls at the Christmas in July workshop asked for a Scissor Essentials class was surprise and then pleasure that there was still interest in it.
I couldn't tell you how many bags I've made. Here are the two I still use today. I did think the blue was the very first one I made but I have a vague recollection of an earlier blue model. No, not red, it wasn't my favourite colour back then. The bag was so quick and easy to make I made all my sewing friends one for Christmas that year.
The bags put an end to my 'good' scissors being used to cut paper. Placing them in a bag, put them out of bounds!
There are three bags and a thread cutter case in the pattern. The girls on Saturday all decided to make the large bag.
Sue decided to fussy cut a piece of French General fabric and was thrilled with the finished result and how quick it was to make. Sue was going home to make more for gifts, quite a few if these fussy cut pieces are any indication.
