Scissor Storage for Your Best Shears

Scissor Storage

Candy Corn Scissor Case building in the hoop

Your best shears deserve the royal treatment! Make scissor cases to house your favorite sharp tools and keep them away from sticky fingers! For National Sewing Month, we want to treat our best tools with tender loving care, so here are three in-the-hoop scissor cases to create, with kits to make things easy.


The Candy Corn Clutch, from Sookie Sews for Sulky, is the perfect shape to hold a pair of large scissors. The largest size measures about 5 3/4″ x 9 1/4″, so easily holds a pair of scissors slightly smaller than that.

Grab a Candy Corn Clutch Kit to create yours out of Sulky Felty™ colors and have the Candy Corn look! (These make great gifts, too!) Check out our FREE webcast with Sue O’Very-Pruitt of Sookie Sews to watch this project come together. REGISTER NOW & WATCH ON-DEMAND>

Then, get more mileage out of the design files and make both small and large sizes, using coordinating fabrics and batting remnants in your stash.

Use variegated 40 wt. Rayon Thread for the quilting stitches and decorative topstitching for a fun, different look.


Our Scissor Stasher, designed and digitized by Lisa Archer of Pickle Pie Designs, is great for a small pair of scissors or snips. This one is worn around the neck, so your scissors are always within reach when moving around in your sewing room. This project is also available as a free webcast, so you can watch it come together and grab a fun freebie just for registering to the event. Watch it ON-DEMAND>

The Deanie Pouch, designed by Sallie Tomato, not only stores scissors or a rotary cutter, but has room for a few thread spools, small ruler and/or marking pencil. This pattern comes in two sizes with ample area on the front for fun machine embroidery.
