Scissor Cases

Last week we covered Eyeglass Cases as good gift ideas. Another great idea would be a scissor case! There are so many great designs, and there are some really unique shapes too, from flowers, to the standard "scissor" shape shown below, to sea shells and more. 

This Clown Fish Scissor Case by Amanda Lawford Artworks is a lot of fun. I love the bright colors, and I love that it is double sided. Both sides are really visually interesting, and would be fun to stitch. It is painted on 13m canvas, so you would need a thicker thread. Silk and Ivory is one of our go-to threads that we recommend very often. It comes in a wide range of colors and each color is really vibrant. If you haven't tried it, give it a try!

This Chinese Ming Vase Scissor case by The Studio Midewest is so pretty! It's a really classic design, and would be great for someone who is more conservative. Pepper Pot Silk would be a great choice to stitch with for this project. 

For your fashionable friend, this plaid case by Associate Talents is really chic. Vineyard Merino is a great choice to stitch this project with. It's strong and durable, so it will stand the test of time, and it comes in a great selection of colors.

This Pansies Scissor Case by Whimsy and Grace is really beautiful. It comes with a tassel to attach when it's being finished, and the colors are so bright and eye-catching. Try Splendor, Soie D'alger, or Impressions when stitching this canvas. Either of them will give a nice shine and will emphasize the saturated colors of the flowers.

Scissor cases are great little gifts. Some stitchers may not think to stitch a special case for themselves (although they're a great way to store your scissors in a personalized and pretty case!), so if you stitch and finish one for them, I'm sure they will really appreciate it. Check out our Scissor cases for some more ideas. There's lots to choose from!
