Many of you already know that I take plain crochet hooks and add snazzy polymer clay handles to them (and if you don’t know that, you can see what I mean here).
Every since I started doing this, I’ve been on the lookout for tools I could supply to the knitters out there. So far, no luck in that department, but yesterday I came across something that would make a lovely gift for those who sew: seam rippers!
I was just saying to myself a few days ago that I could use a nicer seam ripper than the cheap, dull one I am using, and then lo and behold, a catalog lands in my lap and it features seam ripper “blanks” that I can decorate to my heart’s content. (Above are some mock-ups of what that might look like.)
The rippers themselves look to be of excellent quality, but I will (of course) make one for myself and test it out before offering them for sale.
My question is: does this sound like something you would buy? Either for yourself or for a gift? I would probably price them roughly the same as the crochet hooks (possibly a dollar or two more, depending on how many I would need to buy at once [the more I need, the less each blank costs]).
If there is enough interest, I could have custom ordering up and ready within a week or two, and get a nice batch put together in time for Christmas gift-giving.
What do you think?
