Tuesday Tip - Seam Ripping


Ugh!! It seems everyone can relate to the agonizing and tedious work of seam ripping! Picking and ripping out those tiny little stitches a couple at a time! Nothing worse!! :(
Hey, wait a minute...what's that little red ball for??
Seriously!?!! Seam ripping just became a breeze and sort of fun!! If that's even possible! Watch this little video demonstration here and your life will be forever changed! :)

You're Welcome! :)

Happy Quilting!

Wow! Who knew? And I have been sewing (and ripping) for almost 50 years. Thanks! : )

I feel like Janet. I have been sewing and ripping for 50 years and I don't think I have ever been told how to use that seam ripper. I did notice the ball, but thought it was just there to keep from ripping the other side of the fabric! I am so glad you showed that video. I probably wouldn't have even believed it if I hadn't seen it in action. Thank you.

I saw that on FB last week and I had the opportunity to try it a couple of days ago and it really works!

What?!! I am speechless. I think my excuse for not ripping out things that did not end up the way I wanted them is gone now! I may need a new excuse...

Thank you so much! I'm dying to use this technique! Of course I'd rather not need my seam ripper, but I surely will. Lol.

How cool is that! Doesn't ripping the stitches out that way distort the bias edges of those curved patches, though?

I saw this on Facebook too. So embarrassing that I have been using it wrong all along. Now I am looking forward to ripping seams!
