18th Century Scissor Shoe Fobs Cross-Stitch Free Tutorial By Romona King Of Northbrook Designs

I just LOVE cross-stitch and LOVE shoes so you can imagine how delighted I was to see that Romona King of Northbrook Designs had created 3 wonderful free cross-stitch designs on her Northbrook Stitches blog for creating 18th century scissor shoe fobs.  I am definitely going to be creating some of these.

Here's what Romona had to say about her cross-stitch designs and tutorial:  Shoe Fobs came about as a result of my friend Colleen asking if I would like to be a guest blogger on her site. Because I had just recently gone back in time a little to return to my needlework days, she wondered if I could come up with something to celebrate her Historical theme for March 2012. I decided these were simple and quick to do and in keeping with my Marie Antoinette obsession. I have tried to use as few colours as possible because I tend to get carried away with details, so I have restrained myself for these fobs.

These are very small, they fit onto a 1 1/4 th  metal button cover. I have written a tutorial below to show you how to put these little charmers together. They make wonderful decoration and identifiers for your scissors and we all know how special our scissors are to us. They are fast to do and you can make them to fit larger or smaller button covers by simply changing your fabric count therefore making them for your different sizes of scissors.
