Earlier this week I placed an order for some supplies, mostly the basic stuff like muslin, thread, zippers, etc. but this time I splurged and ordered myself a new pair of scissors and some new fabric.
The fabric is Blue Paisley by Deena Designs for Freespirit. Beautiful, isn’t it? I always have customers looking for paisley prints and this will be a nice addition to my collection.
As nice as this fabric is, I have to tell you, I am more excited about the scissors. I have been using my trusty 8″ bent blade Fiskars for years. This time I made a last minute decision and decided on a pair of 9″ Fiskars Razor Edge Dressmaker Scissors. And can I tell you….I’m SO glad I did.
These are amazing. I sometimes struggle to get through double layers of thick batting and these make that task so easy!
Take a look at the size difference of my old Fiskars and these new ones….
Whoa! Bring on the layers!
On a side note, also within this delivery was the item I was waiting on to complete the project/tutorial I am working on for you. I can’t wait to get it finished and written up for you!
What? Another hint? Well, ok. Remember I told you think retro. The item rhymes with “ruffle”. My version will of course be modernized. Anyone want to guess???
