I thought I would make yet another version of the three pocket scissor holder because it is indeed a handy little project to keep all of your sewing scissors together in one place. This is an easy project that uses only a fat quarter of fabric, some batting, a pattern and some standard sewing supplies. If you need any of these items feel free to head over to Fabric.com or Hobby Lobby to get everything you need for this project.
What you will Need:
- Pattern Piece you can get by clicking on this link
- 1/4 yd. Batting
- 5″ Ribbon
- Standard Sewing Supplies
Step 1: Three Pocket Scissor Holder
Print out the pattern pieces. Abut them together and tape. Lay the pattern onto the fat quarter and cut 2 pieces making sure that one is a mirror image of the other. Cut one of the batting. You will notice that there is a 1/4″ seam allowance included in the pattern.
Step 2: Three Pocket Scissor Holder
Place the fabric right sides together with the batting on the outside. Make sure to add your ribbon loop at the markings on the pattern. Instead of ribbon, I made a fabric loop to match my fabric. You could also use a piece of bias tape if you have some on hand.
Step 3: Three Pocket Scissor Holder
Sew all the way around and through all layers leaving a 2″ opening at the bottom for turning. Clip the corners.
Step 4: Three Pocket Scissor Holder
Turn Right sides out and fold under the fabric at the opening. Press well. Top stitch around the perimeter.
Step 5: Three Pocket Scissor Holder
Lay the piece facing right sides up and fold the short side to the long side and press.
Step 6: Three Pocket Scissor Holder
Fold half of the previous fold back on itself and press again.
Step 7: Three Pocket Scissor Holder
Open up the first fold so that both folds are facing down. Then fold the left side over. Fold up the bottom point to square it off and press.
Step 8: Three Pocket Scissor Holder
Fold the previous two folds back toward the left fold so that there are now three pouches for the scissors.
Step 9: Three Pocket Scissor Holder
Clip the sides together and sew up both sides of the piece enclosing all of the folds. You have now completed your three pocket scissor holder.
