Spring Back Scissors
I have a bunch of fancy scissors, but
this is my favorite line of scissors!
I only had one of the small trimming pairs for a long time and did not realize how wonderful they were until a quilting friend of my mom's showed me the larger ones.
These ones specifically are great for small, repetitive cuts. Like for rag quilts!
See how they open without your hands having to do any work? It really keeps them from tiring out and/or getting that carpal tunnel like feeling.
This is easier done with two hands, one to hold the fabric.
I took the video myself so I did it one handed. ;)
