Saw this scissor holder that a friend had made. Liked the style of it so she told me the size fabric to use and then challenged me to figure it out! Think I managed it ok.
I used a piece of fabric I had space dyed in pinks, red and orange and a green piece of fabric for the inside. I printed a flower motif onto the pink piece using green acrylic paint mixed with a fabric medium. I then free machine stitched round the flowers.
Having done that I then stitched it right sides together (with some wadding behind the pink piece as I wanted to quilt it), turned it the right way out, top stitched all round the edge and then free machine quilted round the flowers.
Lastly the pockets were folded and stitched into place. Very simple but very effective.
