Regency Style Scissor Keeper

The first Scissor Keeper I made all the die cuts were made with Papertrey Ink felt. This one was made from felt I had in my stash. It pains me that Papertrey Ink is so much better for this sort of  sewing it's a heavier, denser, tighter felt (and 100% wool). The pain coming from the fact I have a lot of felt on hand that is wonderful for other projects, but looks like I'll be ordering felt from PTI for these. I'll have to make another one out of Papertrey Ink felt for my very pointy scissors as they caught on the inside of the looser felt. The Scissor Keeper was stitched with commercial embroidery thread from my stash.

The Regency Rose is stitched on Vintage Cream Papertrey Ink felt after having the holes cut out with the Regency Era mini kit and then fussy cut.  All the stitching of the Rose is with handspun silk embroidery thread and then painted with inks smooshed on the craft mat and spritzed with water. The inks used were Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and Sweet Blush and Simply Chartreuse Papertrey Ink inks.
