Just thought I’d share a little thing that makes my sewing life easier…
I have attached my small scissors to a length of ribbon
which I have looped around the thread spool in the top of my sewing machine.
The scissors are always there when I need them
The ribbon loop is also useful when I want to hang them round my neck
as I sometimes do when I’m hand sewing on the couch in front of the TV.
What little tricks work for you?

Nifty! I like it.
My recent amazing trick has been to unpack my sewing machine. I've even been having fun with it, which for the last 7 years or so I must have assumed wouldn't happen on unpacking.
For my next trick … I'm making myself that empire-waisted apron I told you about.
Prepare to be amazed.
Good idea, I may just go do that I'm always searching for scissor when I'm at the machine, only to find them buried under scraps.
After I saw this post last week I was working on a project and. "YES" I have to go get the lanyard I have that will be perfect for this!! thanks
I adore the idea. I have always had to dig ( sometimes very deep) for my nippers.I end up using another apir and lossing them too.
Thanks a lot!
