Do you have a sewing tool you can’t live without? Sewists are notoriously picky about their set of tools. I love sharing these life-changing tools with friends.
This new feature is inspired by that same spirit of sharing. Every month one of our Colette staffers will share a favorite sewing tool or notion here on the blog. We will then give away this very item to one lucky commenter.
These post are unsponsored and only feature tools that we use regularly.
ETA: THis giveaway has ended and comments are now closed. Congrats to our winner!
Tool: Fiskars Easy-Action Scissors
What is the tool/product?
I do a ton of sewing. These shears help to take a lot of the hassle out of cutting. Here are my favorite things about these scissors…
- These shears spring open with every snip, taking half the work out of cutting.
These shears feature an offset handle (perfect for cutting fabric) and a special ergonomic design that make long hours of cutting way more comfortable.
The handle design also makes them interchangeable for right-handed and left-handed sewists.
How do you use it?
These are my go-to fabric shears. I cut everything from silk to knit with these workhorse shears.
Why do you love it?
When I was a production assistant right out of college at a small company, we didn’t have an automated hand-held rotary cutter. This meant cutting markers by hand with a pair of regular fabric shears. One of my coworkers discovered these scissors, and it drastically changed our production process. No more callouses or sore hands from cutting 8 hours a day!
(An added bonus, these scissors can be sharpened, just like most shears.)
