Today you have a chance to win a cute 2-piece designer cutting set, but first I wanted to share a little info on The Fiskars Coporation which was founded in 1649 <-- uh for reals! They are the creators of the Original Orange-Handled Scissors™ that celebrates is 45th birthday this year and is used & recognized world wide.  Originating in Finland they now have offices & manufacturers worldwide for all the tools they create.

  1. Cute pattern! Who couldn't use some extra scissors? I'm about to recover an ottoman and could use those snips :)

  2. I could use these for my fabric scissors. Instead of "Don't touch my orange-handle scissors, no not that one, THAT pair!" I could just say, "Don't touch my flower scissors!" The snips would come in handy for keeping with my latest crocheting project.

  21. Hello!! Just stumbled upon your blog, and saw this giveaway! I am taking this summer to create a quilt for my mom. She is from India, and therefore owns tons of Sari's (traditional Indian fabric). I plan on cutting the different sari fabrics into little squares, and then sewing them together to create her a quilt.

  23. I just got a book about projects you can make using only one yard of fabric. I am going to be getting some Christmas gift mileage out of that one.....and I know I can use Fiskars to cut fabric! Actually, my husband swears by that brand of scissors....I was much less un-informed about how different scissors and shears can be in terms of quality, before I met him!
