Scissor Keeper

Using Papertrey Ink's Quick Stitch Kit: Sewing Staples, I put together this Scissor Keeper using Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream and Fine Linen felt. The decoration is a primitive heart and sheep. (The little sheep on the left are the result of stamping and stamping backwards).

All the thread is 2-ply handspun embroidery thread. The sheep is stitched with naturally colored brown corriedale wool, the heart is stitched with a grey wool and white corriedale plied together. The Scissor Keeper is stitched with two strands of silk (2 ply).
