I made this bag to carry my scissors back and forth from work. I had the fabric (it was some old curtains) I soaked the fabric it in hot water with washing soda and fabric softener. (I did not use any measurements for the washing soda or softener, I just eyeballed it when I put it in the bucket with the hot water, I did use boiling water and let the fabric sit for 1/2 hr) I then let it dry and ironed the fabric to freezer wax paper and printed the design from my computer, on my inkjet printer. After I printed it I let it sit for a while then ironed it some more to set the ink, then pulled it off the paper and ironed some more, then soaked it in water to see if the ink came off. Most of it stayed as you can see, a few scissors washed a way but most of the dark ink stayed.
I used blue skid proof fabric to make it wider as I could only print on 8.5 x 11 and it was not wide enough for my scissors. I put batting inside to make it cushiony. I made a little pocket to hold my favorite hand needles and thimble. It closes with elastic. My daughter wants me to make a case for her hair cutting scissors.
