- Hi there, I am Mary Nell and I live in the Ozarks. I live on a farm which is my own little piece of Heaven. I love to craft, quilt and create. There is always something new going through my head that I see that I want to try to make or design. While quilting is a long standing tradition here it is something that I am fairly new at. I hope that on this blog you will find something that will spark your interest.and you too will want to sit down and make something for your loved ones. But once you do I can tell you that it can lead to a serious condition. There is no cure. Once you start it is something that you just can't stop...Enjoy!

3 compartment scissors holder wall pocket
Cut 2 10" pieces of backing fabric and batting.
1 10" piece of your desired fabric for the back side of the holder and at least 3 different fabrics for your front. These can be made with scraps really easily.
Now for the next piece. With you batting a backing fabric that you chose lay them together in a sandwich and Quilt them by making a large X on the back just to secure them together. Lay the Front piece on the back piece and trim to the same size. Then Bind the tops of both by cutting a 11/2 to 2 " strip for both and sewing it to the front. Turning to the back side and folding under stitch down around the top.
You will also need to cut the fan shape at the bottom to cover those odd looking seams there. I just zig zag this on and then add my lace around it. After you get your lace sewn on put the back and the front together right sides facing and sew down both sides making sure that all the material is being caught with you stitching. Turn it right side out and to make your pockets for your scissors you sew down two lines from top to bottom on your whole piece.
