Did you know a seam ripper could be used this way?!? I had *no* idea until my boss showed me one day a couple years ago at the shop. I used to pick out every 3rd or 4th stitch – So SLOW!! This is so much better when I have to unsew a 90″ seam or something. Obviously, be careful because as with *most* sewing tools, there is some danger, but I haven’t poked myself or ripped any fabric yet. Happy Sewing!
