Amazingly, the case turns out to fit her cell phone perfectly and she is now using it for that purpose as you can see below. If I had been trying for that, I would never have made a case that fit that well.
Hetti's sister, Miek, likes to dye fabric and threads. Making the scissors case reminded me of the beautiful hand dyed fabrics I have in my stash that Miek sent me some time ago. I decided to make a couple of Halloween cards from one of the pieces. The first is a design from the The Flossbox. Zombies like to trick or treat too you know!
The second is an old freebie, "Des Fillles et Halloween", by Nathalie of Jardin Prive. Originally the design was available on this site, www.desfillesetuneaiguille.com.
I don't think it is there now. It makes me think of a stylish version of the Shakespeare Weird Sisters. Love those cinched in waists on the two end ladies.
And, while I was playing with the fabric, I grabbed this beauty and stitched a bookmark for WOCS from a design in "Bookmarks Galore" from Leisure Arts. It was tricky to find something that would work with all of those colors, but i think this blended in quite well.
