Hi everyone! Today's Tool Time is a quick fix for the "lost scissor syndrome". You know what that is, right? The constant search for your scissors under piles of fabric or somewhere near your sewing machine or underneath books and junk on your work table.
Well, here's an easy solution...an automotive funnel and it was only 97 cents!! I bought mine at Walmart in the automotive section.
This particular funnel is a long skinny funnel. Perfect for scissors!!
Even comes with a built in hook.
It's the long and skinny kind to reach into parts of engines with automotive fluids.
I know it's orange, but I love it. Adds a pop of color!!
Here is a real pile of fabric I'm using for this month's Block of the Month Club. I finished the 3rd block on Sunday, so I'll share it this week.
This is seriously where the scissors were and I have a mug tree that holds all my scissors right at the back of my cutting table.
Here's the funnel fix!!
Add a 3M stick up hook where you use your scissors the most and where it will have easy access.
Then just hang the funnel!
Scissors always where you can find them, out from underneath the mess.
Any scissor will fit.
Perfect near your sewing machine too!!
This was an easy, cheap and great way to keep track of the one thing we keep losing!! Scissors.
I have also seen funnels used to hold balls of string and the end of the string comes out the funnel tip!
I also bought one of these years ago for another post...a Snowman Kit. You can use this orange funnel for the snowman's nose!! Click HERE if you want to see the kit.
Hope you have a great day,
