    What kind of scissors do you use to fussy cut?

    I've been trying to cut out some small flowers for a landscape quilt and have found it very difficult to do with my regular scissors. the last time I did fussy cutting, I had a pair of surgical scissors that a friend gave me out of a suture kit. they were the throw away kind and got to dull to use again. I was wondering what kind of scissors you use for your fussy cutting and where can I get them?

    Fiskars makes a small pair that I bought at Walmart that I use. They are very sharp and I liked them so much I bought a second pair so I can always have a pair handy.

    Once again, I cannot recommend Kai scissors enough. I have 2 small pair that are great for applique, one of them is curved. They are very sharp and are micro-serrated, so the blades grip the fabric as it's being cut.

    Hancock Fabrics has a small very sharp pair of embroidery scissors that I really like. The regular price is $1.99 and I bought a couple of spares this past weekend for only $1.49 each.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
