The best thread snips
I use these scissors so much to snip threads that I now have at least three of them. I keep one near my sewing station, one in my portable sewing kit, and one near my main living room couch where I spend the most time finishing up any projects requiring hand sewing. Yes, the small, traditional embroidery scissors that require you to insert your fingers into two handle loops come in many beautiful shapes and colors, but it is this scissor I reach for the most. No fumbling to get my fingers in and out of small loops, and less chance of cutting into my fabric with the curved shape of the blades. When my seam ripper isn’t handy and my stitch length is 2.5mm or longer, I oftentimes use this scissor to rip the seams without damaging the fabric. I always buy one of these for friends who are looking to pick up sewing or embroidery as a hobby.
