Shop Announcement:

Since I am trying to live, and stitch, according to the Reduce Reuse Recycle mantra, there is now little to distinguish this shop from my other, Lynwoodcrafts, Folksy shop. As a consequence, all new items will be listed at Lynwoodcrafts and items listed at LynwoodcraftsRecycled will gradually be moved over to Lynwoodcrafats. As usual, accessories featuring original embroidery, in association with felting, hand dyeing and fabric painting may be found 'Lynwoodcrafts' at Folksy.

Scissor Keeper - Bright Patchwork

Scissor Keeper  - Bright Patchwork
£5.50 1 Available
Love this


A bright and traditional patchwork, hand-embroidered, multi-coloured scissor keeper, or small pincushion - stitched from vintage and reclaimed fabrics. The back of the scissor keeper is cut from a remnant of printed fabric. Simple embroidery has been worked in bright threads over the patchwork seems. The scissor keeper is filled with polyester wadding. A loop of bright red, satin ribbon allows the scissor keeper to be attached to a pair of scissors.

As a precaution, a sheet of recycled plastic, cut from a milk bottle, has been inserted into the base, prior to stuffing - this should act as a barrier to pin points!

Size: 5.5 cm square approx

Please note: items from lynwoodcrafts are intended for adults. This item is unsuitable for children under 3 years of age since it contains small parts which may represent a choking hazard.


I love patchwork and the simple embroidery was a pleasure to stitch. The pincushion is, I think , plump enough. As a precaution, a sheet of recycled plastic has been inserted in the base prior to stuffing - this should act as a barrier to pin points!
