Leather Needlebook with Scissor Shield

from Sew Fearless
(9) Name: 'Sewing : Leather Needlebook with Scissor Shield
Leather Needlebook with Scissor Shield
Leather Needlebook with Scissor Shield
Leather Needlebook with Scissor Shield

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Sewing a straight line
  • Sewing around curved cornes

Pattern Description:

I love these little 3 1/2" Embroidery Scissors for hand sewing and detailed cutting. They are lovely and make me feel sophisticated when using them, and they are darn right handy for quick snips and hand sewing projects. The problem is I always seem to be misplacing the tiny thing, or little hands try to steal them away when I am not looking.

So, I designed this Needle Book with Scissor Shield. It holds embroidery scissors and hand sewing needles - perfect for those "Take-It-Around-The-House" sort of projects. I'll tie it on a ribbon or slip it on a necklace, and I won't lose track of my scissors and needles in my couch cushions (or in the grass this summer).

This pattern, laid out in a unique "comic book" format, is aimed towards the advancing beginner and includes tips for working with leather.

There is also "cottage industry licensing" available for the home seller.
