Shears



A good quality pair of scissors used specifically for cutting out fabric.  Shears are 8 to 10 inches in length with a bent handle designed so that you have the bottom blade of the shears resting on the cutting surface as you cut out fabric. This allows you to cut out the fabric perfectly.   Never use these for cutting out paper as it dulls the blade.
