Duckbill Appliqué Scissors

Duckbill scissors are a really great tool to have when you are going to appliqué!
They let you easily trim close to the seams of appliqué without cutting holes in the fabric or accidentally snipping your stitches!

For example: In the center of this candy cane there is some fabric that needs to be trimmed.
Laying the duckbill part of the scissors flat against the fabric and getting the extra threads right in between the  blades.  Then snip!
See how nicely that edge was cut, all stitches intact and no worries about damaging any layers of fabric! 
This is a tool you will want on your sewing items to get, especially if you appliqué!
