I have pieces of fabric in my closet which I have kept from way back. I did it even without fully knowing where to use them. They’re excess fabric from making play costumes for the kids, from their school projects, and from when I was learning how to sew.

Put those left over fabric pieces to good use by making this one!

I opened my closet one time with the urge to do something about those. I searched  for DIY projects on the Internet. There were too many DIYs needing fabric, but this pouch for scissors was the perfect item because, coincidentally, teacher’s day is coming up.

Since this one’s a pretty easy work, I was able to finish all 5 in a day. I need not worry about what to give my kids’ teachers anymore. Also, I need not spend much on gifts just like last year. Such a lifesaver!
