Sewing Heart

A Mon Ami Pierre freebie available on their site. They show it on a heart-shaped thread keeper but it works this way, too. I can imagine this stitching lady on a heart-shaped box, as an ornament, a tuffet – all sorts of ideas. I added a large shell circle (found in the beading section at the craft store) to use as a thread ring. The twisted cording was an after-thought and makes the scissor keeper look more finished. I can even hang it because of the loop.

I was originally going to fold the finished heart in half and snap it shut. The snap would do double duty - to close the scissor keeper and to hold the scissors in place. Instead I added the pocket and used a bead-shell flower-bead contraption to keep the scissors in place.
