Applique is the process of ironing or sewing one piece of material onto another. In order to make the object being applied, you must be very precise in cutting your fabric. The pieces used must be very carefully trimmed. Havel’s Sewing offers a variety of specialty scissors designed to make your applique projects cut close to perfection!
Our Multi-Angled Pelican Scissors (which come in right and left hand versions) provide better viewing and a more comfortable position when cutting. The Pelican “bill” lifts fabric as it trims it away.
The Curved Scissors for Iron-On Applique have a rounded blade on the bottom to keep fabric safe, while the longer handles makes cutting around corners simple.
Our Double Curved Applique Scissors feature short narrow blades with rounded tips reach into small areas without poking or tearing fabric. These are also available with pointed tips, and in both right and left hand versions.
In the applique process, you need to cut closely, with acute precision. And close cuts are what Havel’s Sewing scissors are all about. With designs for both right and left-handed sewers, and multiple angles for better control, you can’t help but stay sharp while you cut your pattern for your applique project.
