This design is from Emblibrary and I thought it would be a fast and easy project. Not so. Following the instructions, Hand-sewing the FSL flap to the case was miserable. Also the largest of the design is not big enough for the average size scissors. Still I like the design

It is a lovely design but I see what you mean not fitting the scissors. Great job on making it.

It is Ok for the medium and smaller scissors. I think I will figure out how to get around it

Very nice design. Looks elegant.

It's very pretty, though. I hope you can find a way to enlarge the design to make it fit what you wanted it to.

Love it, did you remove the design or just not sew it? I bought this design when I saw the one you did.

Yes I removed the design. I have a lot of upholstery material which were samples. I thought they would be great for that. Now I wonder.

maybe not fast and easy but a lovely result :) for a small pair of scissors

Beautiful Scissor Case. I always find EL Instructions are too detailed. Hugs

It is very pretty, I would send them a message and ask them some of these questions. I know they have (in the past) made adjustments per customer request. It looks like it should be a "no hand sewing" project to me.

I think I might do that.

Beautiful case, may be you put a smaller scissor in.

Oh sure. It still can be used for a smaller scissor.

Looks fab!

They are so beautiful Angie, even though they aren't big enough for a standard pair of scissors. I'd love them for a pair of nail scissors too in a personal hand care pack. Love Chris

It is lovely...however I am puzzled as to why it wasn't digitized to have the lace flap added while ITH...and it would certainly be easy to enlarge it to hold larger scissors...

spendlove by spendlove 12d ago

Typical EL! Their ITH designs often miss out the obvious.

crafter2243 by crafter2243 12d ago

Maybe it would not fold as easy. As far as enlarging it. I would not hesitate doing that to the casing, but always worry about changing size with FSL designs.

crafter2243 by crafter2243 12d ago

Another reason might be the size hoop it would require.

dragonflyer by dragonflyer 12d ago

Hmmm...enlarging the length should not compromise the the FSL part of the design...

If it was done in one the lace would be inside out when folded over.

It is a very pretty scissors holder. Sad that it is unusable for any but small scissors. I wonder if it would be good for seam rippers. Yes, I use them a lot. hehe
