My scissor fob was looking rather shabby so in the meantime I made a new one. It is just some of the motifs from Black Bird Design A Stitchers Journey. I am poised to do more from that. I picked up some of the supplies you need like wooden boxes from Hobby Lobby. The pin cushions in the book are all stuffed with the crushed walnut shells. I looked at the local Pet Supplies Plus last week for Lizard Litter but, couldn't find any. I went back today and did find some called Lizard Dessert Sand. I had already gotten some. Good to know I can get it local. My husband asked, "how much of that stuff do you need." I replied, "don't know but, good to know its there." Stimulating dinnertime conversation at our house.....what you talk about now that the kids are in college.
I used the crushed walnuts to stuff the fob. I don't think I would do that again but, it was worth the experimentation. I do like the weight of it.
The back side is just an "M" and a partial border. The buttons are from the many tins I rescued from the in-law house clean out extravaganza this summer. You can never have too many buttons.
