Chalk Scissors

Design Concept
This product is mainly to raise the interest of children in cutting during the needlework with their parents. It can also increase the family’s pleasant memories of making handicrafts together.
Existing Problem
1. The conventional marking powder-pen will dirty the user’s hands.
2. The body of the thread cutter is too short, and the fulcrum is too forward to control the cutter.
3. The user has to change the tools frequently.
Combine the thread cutter and the marking powder-pen. When user measures the fabric, he can draw lines with the pen side, and just turn to another side to cut.
