Mon étui in progress

Oh, lovely autumn, so inspiring and beautiful! And I am so in love with the Haori fabric! It was exactly what I was looking for my special "Mon étui" project. Muted, earthy colours, very course weave, that gives a characteristic texture to the fabric. Differently coloured fibres, interestingly weaved into the solid colour make the thread choices a challenge that results in a telling-a-story kind of projects - just the ones I love. ♥ Finally, I narrowed down my choices to these colours:

I made the pattern for my étui out of my daughter's draft paper - the tests she was practicing on for her Royal Conservatory Music theory exam. I have a whole bunch of sheets with notes here, lots of projects to accommodate on them :) And then, here came the challenge, I was up against, of making the little embroidery scissors' pattern... It wasn't only the drawing part, it was the size, and copying the pattern to the fabric... I still do not have the kind of paper that could save time and effort. I still have no idea what to use for copying, so, in case you have a clue what could help me through this journey, I would appreciate a hint or two on the topic. And my research will continue (when I find time for it), so if I find out first, I will definitely post here.
