    I've never ripped serged edges before but I use a straight razor to cut my stitches instead of a seam ripper. That might work.

    you can pull the thread out - but i don't know if you pull from the end towards the beginning or the other way around....It's all about getting the right thread and easy peasy pull....

    Start from the end you finish on and it should ravel after you remove a few stitches.

    wow...it really unravels that easy? huh. I'll remember that for when I goof up next time.

    Usually.. I just reserge the piece and allow the cutters to cut off the 'mistake'. But then, I'm new to serging... so I don' t know much of anything!
