Making a Scissor Case

I got some great really sharp little scissors online. I have no way other than to original packaging or carrying them with me. They will poke through anything I put them in.

My friend Carlene suggested a triangular pouch with a side entrance so I thought I would give it a try.

The little curl at the bottom looked kind of sad and lonely so I cut it off. Then I got protests from the gallery and added some back.

I will add a grommet on the closed side and add a ribbon or string. I am not sure which will be better, thoughts? I think I will loop it the through the handle of the scissors so the whole thing is attached.   I plan to sew on a small magnetic closure for the open side.

Now you are probably thinking the scissors are going to go through the end of that, no problem.  know I thought of that too. LOL, I started out thinking about a piece of thick leather but I would need to make it into a cone and just couldn’t see how to make it work well. My solution is to get some needle ends. The ones you use to stop your knitting falling off. I will put one down in the point to stick the tip of the scissors in.

I am thinking of buying some more scissors and making up some to sell. The ones I made here aren’t very exciting to look at but I think I can make them a little more interesting without a lot more trouble.

    Great idea with the needle end! It will not only prevent the scissor points sticking through the felt, it will also protect the delicate blade ends. Lovely case.

    The needle tip is such a good idea. Love the locks at the point.

    Great idea, Ann. I think you could definitely sell these to the right crowd. You could have them with or without scissors so people have a choice. The tip end is a great idea too.

    Very nice scissors and cute case for them. I do have a bit of a scissor problem. 😄

  5. Terrific idea to use the needle case. I have one pair that came with a tip protector. I’ll bet they would be a hit to sell. Cute and practical!

    Great idea Ann both with the needle ends and to sell them. I’m sure you will have much interest.
    I have very fine pointed scissors too, but I personally wouldn’t want them actually attached to the case – the case would either get in my way requiring a third hand to keep it away, or I’d end up wrapped up in the ribbon!

    • Thanks Antje, I did wonder about that. I wonder if it would be better to just put a grommet in and let people add a ribbon or cord themselves. Not sure. I suppose I could add a ribbon and if they don’t like it they can change it.
