Do any of you have a special technique for ripping seams?
I'm always frustrated by trying to hold open the fabric with my left hand while maneuvering the ripper with my right hand. I feel like I need a third hand to help me stabilize everything. I tend to rip the stitches between the two fabric pieces rather than just ripping them out on one side.
I've seen tabletop seam rippers in the store and the idea interests me. Does anyone have one of these or know if they work on ripping out quilt seams?
Also, I tend to be ripping a big seam, it's going nice and quick, and then booom! it goes right thru the fabric.
