Happy Sunday, all!
Last week I took us to the wonderful world of biscornu and it got me thinking about other tools of the trade that can also be fun or beautiful. The first necessary tool that comes to mind besides the needle/thread itself is scissors! I have a wide variety of scissors that all have different duties but for a biscornu, I’d more than likely be using my embroidery scissors. For years, I had the utilitarian plastic handled ones that my mother had previously used until I found my rainbow stork pair:
They were so pretty and shiny that I had to have them! The stork tends to be the most widely used and popular design but I have found quite a few more than I wouldn’t mind owning. These mermaid shaped ones were definitely the first fun ones to pop up in my search:
I was also intrigued by these butterfly shaped scissors:
Or maybe add some whimsy for the stitchy cat lover in your life (could be you?):
I think my absolute favorite and the one that will soon be making it’s way into my kit, though, has to be these unicorn scissors:
Since we’ve made our way through pin cushions and scissors, I thought next week we could take a look at some fun needle minders. What are those, you ask? Tune in next week to see!
