I’m a pretty easy going person but, I promise, you do not want to be the person who uses my fabric scissors to cut anything other than fabric! I made this Fabric Scissors Holder with some help from Cricut to help my husband and kids remember that I love them with all my heart but they better know, that when it comes to my fabric scissors, they “Can’t touch this!”
Cricut Supplies & Set Up
Before we get started on actually making the holder, you’re going to have to decide on the fabric and vinyl color. Cricut has a ton of great fabric options that match perfectly with their Iron-On Vinyl (their Foil Iron On is my favorite!) If you’re in Canada and are in the market for a Cricut, you can find them at Michael’s right now and coming soon to Costco and Wal-mart.
Since your fabric scissors are probably a different size than mine, we’re going to start by making a template. Just lay your scissors on a blank piece of paper and mark the basic shape with a ruler and pen.
Not Sew Complicated
Use that template to cut out two pieces of outside fabric, two lining fabrics, and two interfacing pieces. Here’s a hint: don’t go too thick with the interfacing or else the entire piece will be too difficult to turn. Iron the interfacing onto the back of the outside fabric and sew the pieces together. Repeat with the lining fabric.
Apply the vinyl onto the outside fabric with a Cricut EasyPress. I absolutely love the EasyPress now and won’t ever go back to an iron! Sew the two 4″ pieces of elastic to the top of the fabric and interfacing.
Place that pouch inside of the lining pouch and sew around the top edge. Use a seam ripper to open one of the lining sides to flip the entire piece right side out. Sew up opening and press.
Finish the Fabric Scissors Holder by hand sewing a small button at the top. The elastic loops can be threaded through the scissor handles to secure with the button.
Fabric Scissors Holder
Now, everyone knows that they “can’t touch this!” Plus, if you need to take the scissors away from the safety of your craft room, they’re sure to be protected in this Fabric Scissors Holder.
