A Wonderful Gift for Quilting and Sewing Friends!
A pretty pieced heart with a pocket on the back makes a lovely scissor fob. Attach a pair of small scissors using the ribbon loop, store the scissors in the pocket, and you’re good to go. There’s even room for a spool of thread and needles for hand sewing.
Select a combination of beautiful fabrics from your scrap bag and matching ribbon. The easy piecing means you’ll have this together before you know it. Layer up the heart and do some quick straight line quilting.
Add the pocket and finish it off with a bias binding, perfect for going around the heart’s curves. If you haven’t done one before, it’s a simple process that can be used for many projects with uneven edges. This is a good project to learn on.
The finished fob, designed by Kristine at Poorhouse Quilt Designs, is 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
