Neat Little Seam Ripper Trick

I've known how to sew for most of my life but I'll be honest - I never knew the purpose of that little ball on the end of the seam ripper. Well, I just learned about it. Check out this quick little video and see for yourself.


Who knew! Right? Or maybe it was just me that was in the dark. All I know is that I can't wait to make a mistake so I can try it out for myself to see if it really works.

  4. Argh! I had no idea what it was for either!! I have been sewing since I was knee-high!
    That is one shiny, beautiful stitch ripper. (I love sparkly things.)

  5. I watched this video and then jumped off the computer to sew. . . promptly sewed three rows of a large block completely wrong. . . What a great opportunity to give this a try! ;) It works amazingly well!!! I had those three rows ripped in minutes!! Thank you!!
