Scissor Handle Wrap

Martha Stewart Living, June 1995

To get a better grip on scissors and garden shears, wrap their handles with soft linen-and-cotton twine. Roll 5 feet of twine into a bundle small enough to pass through the finger holes. Beginning at the base of one handle, secure the free end of the twine with your thumb, and loop it around the handle; pass the bundle back through the loop, and pull tight to create a half-hitch knot. Continue around the handle, aligning the knots to form a herringbone pattern around the handle's outer edge.
