Use Sandpaper:

First warning is that sandpaper is not suitable for extremely sharp scissors but you still can make your scissors work again with the help of sandpaper. Remember to sharpen your scissors at the starting and ending of the work in order to make its blades always be ready to use.

Use Sandpaper

By doing this, you don’t have to go through any long delay problems. So you ought to keep 2-3 sandpapers in your sewing kit in case of emergency.

Use an Abrasive Stone:

The abrasive stone has the ability to sharpen the blades of scissors very quickly so that you can get back to work on your project again without any interruption. Just simply open the scissors and place the edge that need to be sharpened on the stone.

Next, pull the blade toward you from one end of the stone to the other while maintaining contact with the stone. After doing this a few times, repeat the process with the fine side of the stone until you get the best results.

Pro tip: When you go on a trip or vacation, besides using the best portable sewing machine for beginners you can bring an adhesive stone with you to sharpen the scissors anytime.

We guess many of us are all have a few glass mason jars in our kitchen. Thus, you can take advantage of your mason jars to make your scissors’ blades sharper. Follow the following steps to sharpen scissors using mason jars:

Firstly, open the jaws of the scissors widely. Secondly, keep the scissor like you are cutting a jar from the middle. Thirdly, squeeze the scissor blades around the jar for 5-10 minutes. Always keep the scissor blades opening and closing just like we do when cutting fabric.

Use Mason Jars

Then, repeat the whole process until you can see the sharp edges of the scissors.

Finally, test the scissors sharpness by cutting some scrap fabrics. Repeat the whole process for more sharpness.

Remember not to put too much strength on the blades or on the jar when you use this method since it can damage the blades instead of sharpening them.

Scissors are one of the sensitive and essential tools in sewing. So if you don’t take good care of your tools, you have to replace them often and that means it will cost you a lot. To move forward in your sewing career and to create brilliant projects, you must always keep your sewing machine and tools on point.
