Handy Scissors are small pairs of scissors that are specifically used for trimming off any excess thread in your material.
These scissors have a zigzag edge which prevents the fabric edges from fraying and unraveling. This is a great and easy way to finish fabric edges.
I should have mentioned this as the first most essential cutting tool. I depend on this small little tool for my sewing life – so many wrong seams all cut open with this handy thingie to be set right again. Whoever invented this thing has my gratitude for all his /her hundred lives.
Seam ripper cuts open threads without damaging the fabric. Keep the thing in its plastic case and away from kids when not in use.
These are cutting tools which look like pizza cutters and they usually come with self-healing mats on which you place the fabric and cut. This is perfect to have if you frequently have to cut many layers of fabric at once. Very useful for cutting thick fabric like faux fur, felt and vinyl. You will not believe the clean smooth cut this one gives.
Just like scissors, you should not be cutting paper with this if you do not want to dull the blades. Most rotary cutters come with spare blades.
