Every sewer will want one of these polished and lacquered brass seam rippers.

The Great Seam Ripper Controversy! Seam Ripper: Why the Little Ball? The Final video in the this Great Seam Ripper series Pam Damour the Decorating Diva, has some pretty nice uses for this tool. First she uses it to rip out a seam on her piping when matching the ends. She also shows us what the little red ball on the end is for. She is one clever lady and knows how to use this tool to it’s full potential.
