Electric Seam Ripper

 How lazy can one be, you ask. Well, I saw one of these and thought it was so cool, but I just couldn't justify spending $20 or more. It just looked like a trimmer to me, and you know what, it is.

I kept looking until I found this. It came with a brush, blade protector, oil, and if you feel the need a couple of covers so you can trim you dog's or cat's (I'd love to see that) face or paw hair. The cost? $8.08 plus tax.

I could justify $8. I've spent $5 on not very good seam rippers before. I got one, I have already used it, and it works! Get yours today online from Wally World. If you want to see how to use one, just search on youtube, there are plenty of videos.

If I had only had this when I unstitched all the quilting I did in this quilt.

Oh, and lest I forget, what to do about all those little bits of thread. I've used tape before, or tape rollers, but the trouble I find with them is that they pull off edge threads. I don't like this. I was in a fabric store a while back and saw one of these. They work really well at picking up the threads. I have to tell you, I found the seam ripper itself not very good. In fact, I've glued mine closed. I just use it for the soft end. It works really well.

I can honestly say I've never seen an electric seam ripper - who knew! I already have trimmers laying around, I'll have to go watch the video! Thanks!
