Using A Seam Ripper What is the little ball for on March 2, 2015 Have you ever wondered what that little ball is for on your seam ripper? I’ve been sewing all my life and just found out a few years ago! I had been doing it wrong all this time. I’ve even taken sewing lessons and no one ever explained it. I just thought it had no purpose…..but it does! So I thought you might want to know, too! Put the ball under the seam you want to rip out. The ball lets you glide the seam ripper through the seam as the edge cuts the seam. This makes ripping out a seam very easy and very quick!
