Ripping Out Unwanted Stitches


Hey, It’s Vanessa from Crafty Gemini. Com.
Today, I’m going to show you the quickest and easiest way to rip out stitches,
courtesy of my friends at allfreesewing.com. So here’s my technique,
you have all these stitches done nice and neat, but you don’t want them or you messed
up and sewed two wrong pieces of fabric together, here it goes. Take your seam ripper, and pop
every four or five stitches. Just like this. It doesn’t have to be exact, just keep popping
them. Just like that. All the way down, the entire length of the way that you need to
rip out. Okay, then you flip it over, pull a thread on the backside, and that’s it!
Just clean out all these stitches that you see and everything is out. That’s not so
hard, huh? I’ll show you again. Pop every three of four stitches.
The smaller your stitch length is, the closer you want to pop them, so maybe like every
two or three. But if they’re wide, if your stitch length is like a three or four or something,
you can just pop every four or five stitches. So pop those on the front, turn it over. Pull
one of the back threads, and there it goes. All you have to do is clean it up, and it’s
done!
