Tiny Scissors Needlework Accessories
COUNTED CROSS STITCH CHART BY MARIE-ANNE RETHORET-MELIN
The focus of this cross stitch design by Marie-Anne Rethoret is on a tiny pair of scissors right in the centre of the pattern.
The chart includes a smaller and a larger pattern from which you can create a whole series of needlework accessories including:
- a scissor case
- a scissor fob (so you never lose you scissors again)
- a pincushion
- a needlebook (to keep embroidery needle neat and tidy)
If you're feeling creative you could even adapt these patterns to other projects like a sewing box. All you would need to do is to extend the borders to adjust them to the size of the box.
The pattern includes instructions for making the accessories as well as a step-by-step tutorial for mounting the scissor case which is lined.
The stitching combines cross stitch, backstitch and half stitch using a pretty floss color in pretty hues of red and purple so you never need to change you thread. The piece shown was stitched on Linen Aida which is very easy to stitch.
