Tried my hand in making Fimo scissors. The results are shown in the photo. The real life pair has been passed down in our family for generations. I believe they are from the period between WW1 and WW2. They still work better then the new, modern ones.
I found the white "coal" iron in my stack of collected miniatures. Bought it some years ago. The two little irons I made from Fimo. I remember my mother telling me about using two small iron irons. That was before electricity time. Both were put on oil burners at the same time. You held one with a towel to work and when it was cooled you put it back on the burner and used the other one. Bless God for electricity
I am showing the inside of the sewing box to the request of one of my friends.
