New to me



I have been sewing and ripping forever and this is something I never knew.  Just turning the ripper tool over makes so much difference.  I don’t have her particular ripper and I don’t mean to be advertising for her.  I am sure she sells a great ripper but the method  works the same with all of mine.

  1. I saw this on Sew Kind of Wonderful blog and couldn't believe I had never known this after sewing for almost 50 years!

  2. I've been doing this for a while but I loved the video! I learned how to finish piping, now I'm going to have to add that to a quilt! LOL
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. That is how my mom taught me to use a ripper. She lived thru WW 2 in Europe and she was very frugal.

  6. I didn't know that! Mind you I've always been intrigued why the smaller side has a ball on it. And just like yours, the method worked with my basic Clover seam ripper. Thanks so much for sharing this video, Nancy. Quilters are so helpful!

  7. Wow! I'm with everyone else - I didn't have a clue that I have been using the wrong side of my ripper all of these years! Makes me want to go sew something incorrectly just so I can practice doing it the right way ;o)) (just kidding!)
