What do you unsew with? It's a rule, if you sew, especially piecing and quilting, there will be unsewing involved. I have several tools that can be used for unsewing. They are all handy and I use the thread clippers often, I keep them by my machine, but not for unsewing seams. My preference for unsewing seams is the knife with blade. I find it to be quickest getting into the seams and cutting through the threads rather than clipping threads. For picking out quilting, which I am loath to do, probably one of the other instruments would be better suited. I cringe when someone talks about picking out quilting stitches.
You can hold your pieces of fabric like this and slice through the seam with the knife. Once you get your hold of the two pieces being separated down pat, the slicing goes super fast.
Make sure your blade is going down, not up towards your face and fingers. I would say, don't try this at home, but, you know, it's where we all are. I haven't yet sliced myself with this blade, but you can see a scar on my index from slicing with a rotary blade. I've done that now so many times, I have my first aid kit nearby and can bandage without a break in sewing. Ask me how I took these photos by myself....I held the knife in my mouth, (also don't do that at home), and had the camera balanced on top of my machine. I use both hands when actually unsewing.
I'm making pillow covers. I want to make a few, and I needed practice and found a good tutorial. I'll post the link when I get these completed. These will be sent to the family with the Sherbet Pips quilt. I had some leftover fabrics and thought this would be a good use of them.
I have quilted and bound this Tropical Paradise, but the sun won't come out for photos, it's been days.
