Whether you have kids, grandkids, or even a husband, your sewing scissors may be in danger! If you have a nice pair of sewing scissors, you probably try to keep them hidden so that they aren't used on paper or glue-covered projects. Well here is a solution, it may be excessive, but not in my house. :)


Find or purchase a small padlock that will fit through both parts of the handle and lock them up when not in use. Now they can't be used. I found a lock that had a flexible cable that worked really well and even allowed me to lock up my little snipping scissors.

I am past the kids and hubby, but even I sometimes forget which are for which. I mark "hobby" on some, "office" on others and put a tied piece of yarn for the ones that are nice and small. That is a stellar idea so thumbs up!
