Your Fabric Scissors! PROTECT THEM with a ribbon that says No Paper! Fabric Only! For your sewing scissors and shears!

If you have ever cut fabric or ribbon, you know to follow that old famous advice:  “Measure twice, cut once!”  But only with with a really GOOD pair of fabric scissors! The most expensive ingredient in most home décor projects is your fabric, and you’ll end up wasting it if you don’t have good quality cutting tools. Don’t skimp on these important members of your sewing basket. It really is worth it to buy the very best you can afford. And to protect them, is such a simple lifetime investment!
Here in our office, we marked our “ribbon” fabric scissors with what:  A brightly colored piece of ribbon tied on the handle to indicate “Ribbon and Fabric Only” scissors.   Check this out for a wee bit of domestic humor and serious comments that helped me remember that I’m not the only one who needs to indicate “THE” pair of scissors to “Never use on paper – or Die” well, you know what I mean – in my scissor drawer!

Here are some quips or comments I enjoyed that confirmed my thoughts of this being a useful item for any crafter or sewer of fabrics….And NEEDING TO PROTECT THEIR FABRIC SCISSORS!

 I had to have a talk with the family about how important my shears are to me and why i bought kitchen scissors for all their other stuff.

Since then … I can guarantee their safety :)

the sewing tools are very important not to use for everyday stuff like paper and chicken.  Hey, these are not poultry shears…. :)

Hi, my kids NEVER touched sewing things, My son, when he grew up, bought me the greatest set of sissors from Snap ON Tools. I lOVE them If you want the best, get them from Snap ON tools. you won’t regret it. they come in a beautiful case, and have three sizes . Good Luck To Everyone. Thank you, guyie

I always put my shears and scissors back where they belong, so of course, everyone knew where to go for them when they needed to cut something. So, I machine embroidered a lovely sampler I framed and hung above where I keep my best cutting tools. It reads: Touch these scissors and die! I still remember my young son’s face as he came out of my sewing studio the day after I hung that sampler. He had a concerned look and said, “You’re just kidding, Mom, right?” I gave him my best stern look and said, “No!” As far as I know, that was the last time he went in there to use the ‘good’ scissors! 

I used to put a combination lock through the handles of my “good” scissors so that no one else could use them!

A combination lock? Oh Shana, how funny! My mom was like Carol, and used a stern look and dire warnings to keep us away from what we called her “fabric scissors”. I inherited those from her, and they are still sharp and useful–making me thankful that we paid attention.

i agree with regina! labelling the scissors is a very good idea! i just thought of it yesterday, after months of owning scissors and sewing machines! well, it’s never too late to start! 

I mark all my shears and scissors “FABRIC ONLY”! Everyone knows how crazy I get about people using my scissors and shears…

My children would probably tell you that they grew up with the threat of a long, painful death if they ever used my good shears to cut anything. Even my husband would look at me and say things like, it’s just this little tag or piece of paper or whatever. I can still hear the words, “Don’t you dare”, coming out of my mouth. Needless to say, nobody died and I still have my good pair of shears after all these years!

I did see my hubby reaching for them one time when I was at the computer.. and I yelled out “OH NO YOU DON’T” and he looked at me like I was out of my mind… I then quietly said to get one of the other pairs….Never my fabric scissors!
