Recycled Shirt Cuffs

I've discovered two uses for the cuffs from shirts that I am recycling, scissor cases and cord minders. For both, carefully trim the fabric close to the stitching. That's it for the cord minder. Use it on irons and sewing machine cords.
For the scissor case, fold up the button side about 2/3 of the way. Fold down the button hole side to check for size. Adjust to your preference. Then, stitch both sides to form a pocket. I chose to leave both buttons on as it gives me greater flexibility as to which scissors travel in the pouch.
Til next time,
