My First Scissor Fob



Well here is my first attempt at a scissor fob. I used Brittercup's free pattern called portrait of a cat for the front and just put my initials on the back. Since, I like to be ambitious I decided to try and put beads on. Thanks to Carol for answering a couple of questions for me. I guess it turned out okay for a first try. I need to work on evening out the beads more. I did have some difficulty turning those corners. I also had some difficulty with placing the ribbon in the fob and deciding how secure it with the beads. If any of you lovely sewing ladies have any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it. I should have paid more attention in home economics-LOL

Thanks for all your very kind comments on my Halloween piece and I also very much appreciate your concern for my wrist. It is a better now-thank goodness. I haven't had much time to stitch due to working more-but after the next month that should ease off. I also want to wish my dd Alexis a very happy birthday! She is 11 today. My little girl is growing up. Hope everyone has a good week and happy stitching.
