Hand-Crafted Seam Ripper!
My friend Anna dropped by yesterday to pick up some zippers and hardware (to make her Bandolier Bag!) and gave me one of these beautiful seam rippers. Her uncle makes them and sells them in his Etsy store (SnowFlakeBowls) - along with some other items like bowls and pens. What a great gift! So I thought I'd share it with you.
I think these would be great to give to someone who is new to sewing. Why? A seam ripper?? I think those who are new to sewing often expect perfection. Or at least they think that those of us who've been sewing awhile are "perfect." They don't realize that even the experts mess up. It's all about experimenting and being comfortable making mistakes and seeing it as an opportunity to learn. I have several seam rippers scattered around my sewing room - and they all get used. But this one will remind me that ripping seams out is a beautiful thing!
