I am an appliquer and am always losing my small scissors. I decided to tie a cord thru one of the handle holes. The cord is about 20" long and tied at the end to make a circle. I wrap the cord around my wrist twice and the weight of the scissors draws the cord up around my wrist and hangs down and out of the way. But when I need them, all I do is lower my hand and the scissors are right there. No more searching for them.
Also, I needed to trace a shape onto template plastic. I used my seam ripper point to trace carefully and slowly around the shape. It was so accurate and when tilted under a light you can clearly see the line. I also use an emory board to smooth the edges of the shape.
