Tip of the Morning Tuesday~Applique Scissors

You don't have to applique to use applique scissors. Since I like to make bags, I use applique scissors to trim the batting or fusible fleece close the the stitching. The large flange of the scissors help to keep the fabric below it out of the way so you don't cut into your fabric. It makes cutting the fleece so much easier.

This is how the applique scissors look when closed.

  2. I don't have any of these scissors, but they've been on my "to buy" list for years. There just always seems to be something else that is needed and they get pushed to the bottom of the list. One day......

  3. A pair of those is what I told my daughter I wanted Santa to bring me. I'm hoping they will help trim fused applique .
