I have used what is essentially a mustache trimmer. Actually purchased it at a meeting of area quilters that had a speaker. Only found out later that it was a mustache trimmer. It works great. You do need to be careful because you can accidentally cut your material, but then you can do that with almost anything you use to remove a seam.

I would probably cut the fabric along with the seam.

Here's a link for a small battery operated one. You just have to make sure that you have a good guard on the cutting blades. And yes it does work great! http://jmichellewatts.com/Quilting_Supplies.htm

Also, another partial discussion on 'ripping'. http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1...t179157-2.html

A mustache trimmer works very well. We actually saw this at a booth at the quilt show, she had the trimmer packaged in brown paper sacks so you couldn't see what it actually was. Of course one of us bought one opened it up and then the rest of us went down to Wal-mart to get one.
