This wonderful ruler has markings to make your Less Than Traditional quilts faster and more accurate. Made of a fluorescent color, the edges of your ruler “light up” your cutting or marking line instead of casting a shadow like traditional rulers. Lines are laser etched on so they won’t wear off and help to grip your fabric as you mark or cut.

Double Pointed Duckbill
Applique Scissors 6in


Tired of applique scissors that don’t cut into tight angles? Now, use Elsa’s Double-Pointed Duckbill Scissors! The unique, patent-pending double point of this duckbill scissors allows cutting of sharp angles and tight corners without changing to a smaller scissors.

The wide outer edge of the duckbill still separates and lifts fabric that is cut away while protecting your base layer like traditional duckbill styles. Our lower blades are very thin allowing you to cut super-close to your stitching. And the double curve of the handles keeps your hand up and away from the surface while cutting. Extra large finger loops add comfort.

Crafted from top quality Japanese stainless steel, you’ll enjoy long-lasting edges.
