'It would be easier to cut the cloth with bigger scissors.'

 

is the correct form.

 

'Scissors' is a plural noun, so you can never say 'a scissors'. If you want to use a singular article you can say 'a pair of scissors'. It's the same as glasses, pants, jeans ... these are plural nouns, so you can't put 'a' directly before them.
