An Ode to my Seam Ripper

DragonCon Countdown: 28 days!

Seam Ripper, dear Seam Ripper, I would be lost without you. I would have no clothing without you.

I would also not learn to sew without you. You allow me to make all the mistakes I want and still be able to undo them. Sometimes I feel like I spend more time using you than my sewing machine, but I have been able to create amazing clothing with your help.

You have helped me deconstruct items of clothing that I have used as templates for other clothing, you have considerably cut down the amount of time I've spent on projects.

One day I hope to use you much less frequently when it comes to my own sewing, but for now I consider you a constant companion and am grateful for your help. Thank you, O Seam Ripper, I'll need you again in a couple minutes.
