More Scissor Keepers/Fobs

Continuing along the lines of the previous post - here are some more scissor keepers/fobs! One of my followers has pointed out they call them "fobs" in the States - we do here also! This is stitched with Appletons crewel wool and is the keeper/fob for my Clover thread cutter which you can see hanging sideways over the grevillea plant! This comes travelling with me always because I don't want to lose my tiny scissors to the security check at the airports!

I love the colours in this fob! I have used some variegated DMC threads for this fob and added beads and a tassel and this hangs on yet another pair of pretty embroidery scissors!

This was a recently made brightly coloured fob which I made as a humbug and attached to a very bright pink pair of scissors - I'll never lose either of these - they are so bright!

And this is my good pair of scallop scissors and as I don't want to ever lose these (they were quite expensive) I have attached a large scissor clown which I made years ago! This scissor clown has some lavender inside also so the scent is lovely too!
