    Cloth will fray after being cut and pinking shears will limit the length of the fray. Check it out at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pinking_shears Good Luck

    What are scissors for other then making a straight cut? The only other thing I can think of for normal scissors is bludgeoning someone.

    So sometimes you feel like a Zigzag and sometimes you feel straight.

    But the zigzag cut comes in handy for sewing on a bias and for scrapbooking.

    So the fabric doesn't fray as easily.
