QofTD Jul31,2011 Seam ripper
An easy ~ silly question today :)
When is the last time you replaced your seam ripper and why?
Do you have so many it's not a big deal to locate one?
I replaced mine last Thursday. I picked a new one up for $1.99 a few weeks ago when I visited the Pfaff dealer a few weeks ago - forgot about it - it was still in my purse. My old one was cracked and really old. It is very, very old -years since I got a new one, says Japan & SKC on the metal part.
I needed to rip out some stitching on a block I sewed wrong, my quilt was layed out on a different floor & I remembered the new seam ripper in my purse. I did not realize seam rippers are sharp! Wow! Like why did I wait so long?????In dressmaking, when you rip out, you run that sharp little blade between the seams and slice/rip all those little stitches very fast - I could do that again! I can't believe how sharp this baby is~LOL
I don't collect seam rippers, I have one I use primarily, one that came with my machine that I do not like & I can think of one other seam ripper that is too large to be controlled easily somewhere in a drawer.
So, when is the last time you treated yourself to a new seam ripper?
