In my ongoing quest to come up with hearts that aren't just pretty, but also have a function, I had a lightbulb-over-the-head moment last night: scissors fobs!
A scissors fob serves two purposes: it helps you locate/identify your scissors (which is useful in a group setting, like a quilt retreat, where everyone has scissors on the table--but I'm sure I will like having a little help spying my scissors in the confusion on top of my sewing table!); and it is a tiny pincushion. This one is 1 1/2 inches wide.
This fob is made of wool felt and cotton embroidery thread; the string is baker's twine.
There will be PLENTY more of these here in the coming weeks! This one was so fun and quick to make, that I want to make more, more more!
