Finish to Scissors Case
This is my finish for the Quaker " Mes Ciseaux" pattern for a scissors case. I thought it was lacking when I had completed it, even though I lined it with a patterned silk; so have made a little scissors fob echoing part of the design on each side. I have finished the fob with a 2mm cream satin ribbon, attached to the fob on either side with a single Mill Hill glass seed bead ( no02068). The linen which I stitched the piece on is a 36 count off white linen. I cannot say what make the linen is, as it was part of a professional soft furnishing persons stash, which she kindly gave me.
