Using A Seam Ripper What is the little ball for?
Have you ever wondered what the 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 often wondered why it was there.
So, I thought I would share with you it’s purpose and the proper way to use a seam ripper.
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!
