I keep these scissors with my crocheting. I use #10 cotton thread to make bedspreads and tablecloths. I snip the thread after each motif. The scissors work well and they are so cute. They are small so they are easy to carry around in my crochet bag. They must be hidden from grandchildren as they would be very attracted to them. The scissors would be just as dangerous as any other pointy scissors. But the youngest ones love to be allowed to hold them and snip grandma’s thread for her.
