A scissor holder is a handy place to store your scissors, to protect the blades and to keep them away from young ones.
It is also a good way to carry scissors when you want to take them along with you.
This Hot Pad Scissor Holder has a loop that allows you to hang it to keep the scissors handy, or you can just tuck them away in the holder, with your crafting tools.
I found the hot pads in the Dollar Store in a package of 2 hot pads for $1.
Make one for yourself and one for a crafty friend.
Buttons, Ribbon, or Other Embellishments
Needle and Thread
Clothespins, Clamps or Straight Pins
How to Make a Hot Pad Scissor Holder.
1. Lay the hot pad with the corners at the top and bottom and pointing to the sides.
Have the side facing up that you want INSIDE the scissor holder.
Put the loop on the top left side of the diamond.
2. Fold the left side in as shown, to make a flat cone shape.
Use a pin to hold it in place, putting the pin where you will be able to remove it later.
3. Fold the right side overlapping the left side, leaving only a small part of the left side showing.
4. Decide where you want your buttons or other embellishments to go,
and attach these before stitching the edge.
5. Pin or clamp the edges to hold the right side in place over the left side while it is stitched.
6. Sew the edge of the right flap to the left flap, hiding the stitches underneath the edge.
Use the diagram to see where the stitching goes – along where the dashed line is.
When you’ve finished stitching the edge, the Hot Pad Scissor Holder is complete and ready for use.
