Clover Seam Ripper
Wow, Tisha was "sew" right when she said every sewist needs a good seam ripper. I purchased the Clover Seam Ripper basically to remove my bad stitching, but I found it was useful in removing buttons, ripping out sewn/serged seams and its all done "seemlessly". (oh, what an awful play on words). Overall I found this to definitely be a required item in my sewing tool supplies!!
The Clover Seam Ripper is tiny, making it easy to open the smallest stitches with precision. Bulky rippers cause the user to use force when ripping minute stitches and may cause unintentional tears in the fabric.
Works so great!
