Last night after work I got alittle bit of a start to finishing my scissor fob.

Dang, trying to attach ribbon and beading to this tiny square is some fiddly stuff.

It is my first time using this finishing technique and I'm a bit of a perfectionist so it is slow going. It has to look just so, know what I mean?

My first attempt, I thought I would do the ruching first and then sew it onto the the fob. Well, that didn't quite work out so I took it apart.

Currently, I am ruching and sewing as I go. So, I have two threads and two needles going at the same time. Imagine the ridiculousness of trying to bead and ruche while also keeping the sewing thread from getting tangled in the ruching thread.

I don't know if I like it or not. I got about one and a half sides done and asked my husband what he thought. He said oh, it looks nice. Figures. Lol. So I've decided to just go with it and see how it looks when its all done. If I don't like it, ill just cut it off and do twisted cord for the finishing.

I only got to work on it for about 45 minutes last night before we went to a friends house to hang out and have dinner with her family while her kids were trick or treating. It was a great night!
