Welcome to the last day of The Fat Quarter Gypsy‘s Pop-Up Blog Pop.
I chose my Are You Shearious? pattern for my Pop-Up. If you know me, you know I have a “scissor problem”…. well, I don’t think it’s a problem! I just love scissors and I love collecting things.
I love making these handy containers and I’ve made several. This one is the large size. I can’t get enough of that that adorable scissor fabric!
To make this version, you need the Are You Shearious? pattern, the Stacking Pop-Up pattern and the Large 10.5″ Spring Refill:

New to Pop-Ups? Here are a few tips… Using my Creative Grids Circle Savvy Ruler is the most accurate way to cut the circles for the bottom – I love finding new uses for my favorite tool!
Also, rather than pins, I found it helpful to use Clover‘s Wonder Clips. Much friendlier on my fingers than pins! I think they also keep the fabric smoother with fewer tucks.
After I made the large size, I wanted to make the extra large size. I chose this wonderful nautical print from Michael Miller Fabrics’ Regatta line. This size is perfect for border prints.
I chose to add a traditional binding to the top of my nautical version and I liked it so much I added it to my Are You Shearious? Pop-Up also:
