Hand Stitched Bamboo Scissor Fob Set


I was asked to make a sample of the Hand Stitched Bamboo Scissor Fob Set by Red Gate Stitchery. I did, but I lost it… for quite a while. Now they are in clearance. My bad! The good news is that they are still available and at 50% off!

The lightweight bamboo flower has precise holes for counted cross-stitch.

The kit includes everything you will need—except the scissors. There are instructions, a needle, the fob & claw hook, and a few choices of embroidery floss.

A scissor fob is handy if you are away from home and want to keep track of your tools. It does not get in the way of using the scissors. The claw hook was too small for my Gingher shears, but worked well on my favorite 4″ Karen Kay Buckley Perfect Scissors.


But, the real reason I am glad I made it is that it looks great as a zipper pull on this Aragon Bag in the Pen & Inked collection!


The Hand Stitched Bamboo Scissor Fob is a quick—and now even more inexpensive—project for yourself or a gift. If you like this clever idea for counted cross-stitch, also check out:

    This is so cute! I don’t do much cross stitch anymore, but it looks like this would be a quick and easy project, with several options for using it. Most likely one of these will be on my next order!
