I was prompted to post this hint from the seam ripper holder project by baydreamer where many of you said you also had a problem keeping up with your seam ripper. She came up with a pretty and very useful solution. I used to have that problem, but I noticed that I never lost one side or the other. I always had put the cap back on before I misplaced my seam ripper, so..... I taped the cap on the front of my machine with painters tape and it's been there for nearly a decade now. I did have to replace the 10 year old tape for the picture :).

Two tips today on handling stray seam rippers. Both are great and how simple can it be to just tape. Thanks for sharing your idea.

Brilliant! I have one of those round magnetic pin holders. I keep the cap on the back end of the seam ripper and put it on the magnetic pin holder with the pins...

Be careful with magnets around your machine. I have heard it isn't wise.
