I guess I could say I didn't know any better, but I didn't know the proper way to use a seam ripper until I started blogging. I certainly don't remember who or where I learned this from out there in blogland....I'm sorry I can't give credit where credit is due, but learning this has saved me considerable time in ripping out my seams.....Heaven knows I do a fair amount of this. In this 'episode' of ripping I sewed one fabric to the wrong side.....anyway....you take your ripper and pluck through about every 5 to 8 stitches like shown.
When I was growing up and learned to sew....this was our 'weapon' of choice for seam ripping!!!.....LOL....does anyone else remember this?
