Wrapped Scissors Tutorial
I recently had them sharpened just in case, since they would be especially nice to use for garment sewing. The other day it hit me, wrap them up in fabric to make them easier to hold AND prettier! I thought I'd write up a quick tutorial in case anyone else wanted pretty, comfortable scissors too!
- 1 pair metal scissors
- 2 torn strips of fabric 1"x44" (I'm using Art Gallery Nature Elements in Hot Pink)
1. To tear your strips, cut a small (.5") slit in the selvedge of your fabric. Holding the fabric on both sides of the slit, pull hands apart, ripping the fabric strip. This ensures that your scissor handles won't fray like crazy! Pull off any stray threads. Trim off selvedges.
*You could also finish your handles by simply cutting off the extra fabric and gluing the end down, just like how you started.
Voila! You're done!
