How to make ripping stitches a pleasure

This amazing seam ripper was made by my CFF Darci's dad. The pain of taking out stitches is lessened when you reach for this beauty.

He turned the handle out of a composite material the guy who made it called Monet's waterlilies, and it's a deep green with bright flecks of other colours. The actual point pulls out and you can put it inside the handle, making it safe for tossing into a bag for a class. Or seam ripping on the go, for the crafter in a rush.

The handle is just the perfect size in my palm with a good weight. So next time I have to pluck out a lot of stitching - and crossing my fingers that doesn't happen any time soon - I'm sure it will be a lot easier on my hand and wrist.
