Yesterday I pulled out my Red Thread Snappers to start stitching on the second square. It looks small enough that I could have finished it this weekend but for some reason I kept finding a million in one things to do instead of stitching on it. One of those things were making scissor fobs. Two of my scissors that I'd like to start using didn't have any fobs on them. Of course before I knew how to make a fob it didn't matter but now that I do make them I just can't use one without one because I manage to lose it all the time. Here's what I made...
I found this cute frog charm at the small bead shop by my house. I know frogs are a no no but I figured if and when a frog decides to visit me while I'm stitching, it'll notice this cutie and leave me alone LOL. BTW, the fobs are much sparkly in person.
I made a stitched fob for these scissors but it was so cute once finished that I decided to hang it as a small ornament. Once I find the scissor sheaths that I have laying around here I can debut these lovelies and start using them. I couldn't find a bee charm anywhere so I had to use a drop bead. I like it, makes it look like the end of a tail.
These ladybugs have no scissor to attach themselves on, so we all know what that means right? New scissor time!!! LOL I have a pair of black scissors (the frog scissors) but would like another pair. My not so LNS owner went to Nashville and will hopefully bring back lovely scissors so I might find one soon, if not I've been eyeing the black Dovo's or maybe a nice shiny silver pair!
And here are some of my scissors in my scissor jar. I can't begin to write how much I love looking at this. I moved it by the TV (across my room) for the picture but it's usually right near my bed on the nightstand so I can look up an see my scissors whenever I'm in bed :-) I couldn't take a picture of it there because it's a mess. I have floss, fabric, patterns, and whatever else stitchy stuff you can think of piled up on it. Is there anyone else that has a hard time keeping their stash organized? Because I swear I cleaned that area up yesterday and it's back to the same mess!
