Scissors fob with Vlieseline product - The Need a Needle Book Swap

Would you like a sneak peak at what I've made for my Need a Needle Book swap partner? It's a scissors fob! I love how it's turned out. I found out my partner likes turquoise and as I've been curious about trying out piecing small squares, I thought I'd give it a go (the squares are 1.5").


The piecing technique is by Oh! Fransson, using light weight interfacing. The first time around I made a mistake because I took the roll I use for appliquè and ironed the squares on that. Afterwards I realised my mistake and that the other side of the squares was now sticky too! So I started over again, this time taking the right roll off my shelf! I used a specific product made for this technique by Vlieseline: Quilter's Grid. I must say I'm impressed by how precise the squares match together without me having to fidget around with them. They came together like magic! Really, I'm not exaggerating. 


I hope my partner likes it! I think it would also make a handy mini pin cushion. I'm tempted to make one of these to hang from my car mirror, what do you think?

There is also a needle book coming, of course...

  2. We are not allowed to hang things off our car mirrors here because they might be distracting and, therefore, a safety hazard.
    I think it is very cute and will make a great pincushion as well.
    We have all made the mistake of picking up the wrong roll (or staring at it for hours trying to figure out what it is!).

  12. Oh this is so cute. I need one for my rotary cutter, I can always find my little embroidery scissors, but that rotary cutter is so naughty, he is always hiding from me.
