Before I started quilting, cross stitch was my
addition craft of choice. And I loved doing miniature cross stitch. 20 count or higher.
When I found these scissor fob patterns I knew they would make great ornaments. I love doing little projects like this because I can throw all the supplies in my purse and sew in the waiting room, at kids gymnastics lessons, or other various times of the day when you find yourself waiting.
I don’t know all the patterns, but I do have some of them recorded:
- Top Left – Winter Scissor Keeper by Drawn Thread
- Top Right – Christmas Heart by Sekas & Co.
- Bottom Left & Center – Were out of a Cross Stitch Christmas ornament magazine
- Bottom Right – Snowman Scissor Keeper by Drawn Thread (bottom right)
After the patterns were stitched I cut them out with a 1/4″ seam allowance. I sewed them with some Christmas print fabric right sides together on a sewing machine. I left about a 1″ opening. Flipped them right side out and stuffed them with some fiber fill. I used the eraser end of a pencil to get the stuffing into the corners. Then I whip stitched the opening. And hand stitched on the cording.
