New Tutorial In My Etsy Shop ..

Hello my dear friends,

I am so excited!! I have just added a new tutorial I have completed yesterday to my etsy shop!

If you recall my post 'Where There Are Scissor..' ~ I had made scissor pouches for my vintage scissors and now I have made a tutorial for those of you that would like to made their own.

I spent the last few days working on the tutorial and it comes with photographs and all the instructions you will need to create your own scissor pouches. I have included the three sizes I made which are small, medium and large. This creation would be such a neat gift you could make for a friend or family member ~ Christmas is on it's way ~ or gift yourself with it! It is quite easy and you can make one in about an hour if you have all the bits and pieces at hand!
Otherwise here at Todolwen ... I am busy as ever with all sorts of things in and outside of the house. In about 3 to 4 weeks the work will start in our basement! I am hoping to be able to work on a few more creations before that because our desk top computer will have to be taken down and I am not sure if I am going to set it up until the work is finished so I won't be able to scan anything for a while but I will see. But ...
... please keep stopping by from time to time and check out what I have been up too!
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day,
Karen B.
