I love collecting scissors. I have a good number now. Here is a photo of my collection back in 2005 when I had just started buying some vintage ones. I have these four very old pairs.
I also have some pairs now that are new but styled after some very old scissors. I love these which I ordered from Sajou but still have them in the box. They just seemed too pretty to take out and use.
I will share a few more with you in the coming week as I have made scissor fobs which I have not shown yet. I have a number of other scissors yet in my collection. My scissors never used to be well dressed but I have been bitten by the fob bug.
Here is a fob that I made for an online friend of mine, Angela. She had won my autumn pincushion give away and I was very late sending it so I made her this little pink butterfly and flower fob to send along and dress up her scissors. She talks about stitching in her garden and I thought this would be perfect for her. Angela emailed me that they arrived so I can now share a photo with you.
Do you have a pair of favorite scissors you use when you stitch or quilt? Do you like to use a fob? Do you collect scissors?
