Zig zag Shear

I bought this shear yesterday.. Quite pricey I must say.. (there goes my RM50 last piece..)
But it trims away all the bits & pieces of your fragile fabric from tearing off.

What inspires me to buy?
I bought a book on children dressmaking techniques written by Rosita Jaafar.
She uses this technique for neat trimmings.

Good idea indeed, since my very-cheap-china-made overlock machine cannot trim curves .. It can only go for straight line..

At least with this shear, safe time from struggling to trim the arm hole... & most important thing is.. more tidy work.

I find this book quite useful, cos it shows visually in pictures, easy to understand for beginners like me.. Price RM 39.90 (WM)

I'm going to like this blog.

Question - is having the pinking shear better than the normal shear. I'm planning to stock up my sewing supplies so I want to purchase the best.

Thnx Zarina .. I learn a new word today pinking shears.. I didn't know the exact name actually.. :D

If I were you.. I must have both.. Pinking shears is just an extra gadget..
