As you can see, I had a productive evening at Busybee Stitching sewing group on Tuesday evening and managed to get the applique and embroidery completed for the scissor keeper lining. The pocket has a layer of thin wadding between the front and the lining, and has been hand embroidered. The front and the lining were then layered up, again with some thin wadding between the layers, and was machine stitched around the outer edge through all layers...
...the zipper was held in place with Clover Wonder Clips, as they are much easier for keeping layers together. The zipper was clipped along the curves to allow the zipper to lay flat. A double fold binding was machine stitched to the front of the scissor keeper, then folded over to the inside and hand stitched to the inside. These Perfect Scissors by Karen Kay Buckley have now got a very posh home!
