RIP Rippy The Seam Ripper

By June 21, 2012 , ,

Is it just me, or do us crafty types mourn the loss of our favorite tools?

After over a decade of on again off again service,  countless corrections, deconstructions, and refashions, Rippy my favorite seam ripper died. Attempts to resuscitate via glue and tape have failed. What’s a girl to do?


Anywho, I guess I’m in the market for a seam ripper similar to Rippy, who was purchased by my Mom at a sewing expo, she said it was a “surgical kind” anyone seen one of these recently? If not I want to know what’s YOUR favorite seam ripper?

Thanks & Happy Sewing

Here’s a sneak peek of what Rippy’s last service was for…


Perfect arm hole under stitch, if I do say so myself…

  1. I know this is an older post and I hope you get this comment. I purchased a seam ripper like this from It is listed as a seam ripper and buttonhole cutter. Before you order it, have them send you a catalog. There are usually coupons in the back for a discount on shipping. I hope this helps!
