    I thought this would be faster but worried I would cut through my fabric. Guess what? I cit through my fabric. I’ll keep going with the labor intensive seam ripping to protect my curtains!

    Yikes! I wouldn’t dare use the seam ripper like this for fear of cutting the fabric, which is really easy to do with a sharp seam ripper. It looks great, and it might work great for some, but I don’t like to take the chance. I’ve cut the fabric before, and it’s VERY frustrating.
