Hummingbird Scissors Pocket and Fob



Here is the first of the designs I've been working on. After many revisions, I think it is finally ready. I liked the first color scheme that I chose, but the colors didn't show up well on the fabric I wanted to use so I had to restitch several areas until I got the colors right. Feel free to change the colors to suit yourself and the fabric that you want to use! I used 28ct Natural Opalescent Cashel linen. I've included the alphabet and numbers for personalization and a couple of choices for matching scissor fobs. Knowing how slow I am about doing the actual finishing on a project, I decided to go ahead and post the chart now rather than wait until the scissors pocket is actually assembled.
Here is a preview of what the scissor case will look like when the flap is closed.
