Meet Sharp, my scissors bag:
It's loosely based on Simplicity 8331 view D.
The bag stands up on its own because the lining is canvas. The handles have heavy weight craft interfacing in them.
The pattern calls for putting plastic needlepoint canvas in the bottom of the bag, but the canvas lining seems to support itself.
It's also supposed to have a flap, but I only had a half yard of this fabric--so no flap. I had to sew two scraps together to make the interior pocket. I didn't tuck the sides and I didn't topstitch the edges to make a rectangle.
I added the piping because it's one of my very favorite details ever.
Finished size is 11x8x6.
It took me like 5 hours to make this bag. I don't know why. I thought this would be a lot faster.
The Scissors fabric was purchased at Stitch Lab in Austin.
Ok, have you seen this fabric, in blue? If yes, where can I buy it??
