    I had to lay my little buddy down to rest tonight :( Many of you hate your seam ripper but I loved the little guy. We spent nearly every night together. And tonight I snapped his head off :( He was always there for me. We worked diligently on every project together. Hand in hand. I sewed and then he ripped away. I am going to miss his little candy red body :( What a good helper he was. And what makes it even worse is that I cannot go any further on my bag I am working on tonight until I go shopping tomorrow to get a new friend. Hopefully I can find a new friend tomorrow! Maybe I wont have to use him as much as I used my old buddy!

    Sadness, you have lost a good friend, goodbye little buddy......
    Now, as we all know, life must go on, however I suggest you get at least two new "little buddies", this way they have each other to help with the unsewing :)

    I couldn't sew without my little tool. I do a lot of reverse sewing too

    Buy two! I use both of mine (but not simultaneously-yet).
    Bet you buy more than a new best friend!

    So sorry, R.I.P Red Ripper. I would suggest one of the better Clover brand ones. I love mine. Sharp and a smaller tip

    I also need a new helper. Mine is still in one piece,but has lost his sharpness.He's a Sr, so to be expected.Where do you find the diff brand buddies? We only have Joanns & Hobby Lobby.
