Scissors

Use the right scissors for the job. Longer cuts (trimming log cabin strips, cutting out applique shapes) should be made with a longer blade from 5" to 6". Again, stick to one or two layers of fabric.

Cutting multiple layers requires a sturdier, thicker, and blade, at least 7" long.

Lots of layers (up to 8) then the Fiskars below is the only choice.

These are the scissors I use!
