Do these Orange-handled Scissors take you back in time?
Whenever I see the orange handles of Fiskars Scissors, I think of being about five years old and watching my mom sew. She would sew clothes for my sisters and I, and I loved watching her create each piece.
There were a few things I knew growing up and one of them was to never touch mom’s sewing scissors.I always wondered how she would know if I used them to cut paper, but I never dare try to. That was one rule that I knew never to break.
Flash forward 30 some odd years and now those orange handled scissors are a part of my sewing, crafting, and creating life. I love that Fiskars has lasted this long and is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Orange-handled Scissors.
In order to help celebrate I created this fun, “Cut it Out” Handstitching Pattern. Just perfect for a fun craft project, or wall decor.
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own “Cut it Out” Handstitching:
- Fiskars Orange-handled Scissors
- embroidery needles
- fabric marker
- embroidery hoop, 8″ is what I used.
- embroidery floss, I used DMC E415 for the silver, 721 or orange, and 4200 for the variegated pink and orange.
- Plain cotton fabric
- Cut It Out Pattern
Print out the download of the “Cut it Out Pattern.” Transfer to the cotton material using a fabric marker.
I like to tap my pattern to a window and then tape the fabric over top to create a light box. It makes tracing lots easier.
Begin stitching using a straight stitch.
I of course wanted to see the orange first so I started with it.
Continue hand-stitching with other colors until you are finished.
I did use a french knot for the “i” dot. But all other stitched are a straight stitch.
I love the finished product.
My girls were big fans too, and they each made their own.
