Step Type:

Slide the seam ripper forward. Bring the thread into the crux of the fork and onto the blade.

Gently push the seam ripper forward again, cutting the thread.

Rely on the blade to do the work. Do not apply a lot of force, as the seam ripper can slip and puncture the fabric.

Continue working, stitch by stitch, until the seam has been removed. Take your time, being careful not to damage the fabric.

Remove all of the loose threads from the ripped seam to prevent tangling when you resew the seam.
