How to Use A Seam Ripper – Oh So Cool

Hey Everyone, welcome back to Technique Tuesday. The other day Michael was watching something on his iPad and said come see this. So I did and it was all about what the little red ball on the end of the seam ripper was for. My mother who was a seamstress I don’t think used it in this fashion but maybe I just didn’t see her rip anything apart. If she knew what it was for she certainly didn’t pass it on to me. Maybe because I showed no interest in sewing at the time. We all know that the sharp pointed end is used to pick out stitches and rip out those stitches we accidentally put in the wrong place or like me with my Stitch Along Sunday piece make the sun look like a huge jelly fish in the sky – really it does. Go take a look.
