Scissor Sheath

While stitching with a friend I lent my scissors; they commented on them so I thought, somebody needs scissors. Then I saw some cute scissors for a low price and ordered them.  They did not come with a sheath.  I like to keep my scissors in a sheath to protect the tips and my threads in my project bag so I needed to create one.  

I had a few bits of  leather, traced a pattern, cut and lightly glued the two pieces along the edge.  Then I used a tracing wheel to create the distance between stitches. I used an awl to make holes. I used two needles and a saddle stitch to stitch around the edge, backstitching at the start and stop. 

The next time I see my stitching friend I will gift these scissors and sheath.   

I added a bit of tatting to the scissors and included one of my needle minders to the gift. 

They were well received, happy stitching. 


  1. That’s a lot of work, but the sheath will do a good job in protecting the scissors, lucky recipient.

  2. What a wonderful gift! I'm sure your friend will treasure them.

  3. Thats a lot of work for your scissors but worth it to protect them
