What a piece of work is man!

For the OTT Doctor Who swap, I was inspired by our awesome organizer jennieingram to create a sonic seam ripper for my wonderful partner, spidermom. Spidermom loves #10 so I looked up his screwdriver design and attempted to copy it. It didn't come out perfectly--it took a lot of tweaking and brainstorming and walking away frustratedly--but she likes it so I'm happy!


Shown with a picture of the actual version. The metal tubing is actually copper plumbing pipe I got at Lowes, then spray painted and glued together.


The blue light part is from a keychain I found in my stash--it HAD TO BE BLUE!! The original plan was to put it inside the tubing and have it shine out through the end of the tube, but that didn't happen. Mainly because the pipe was too thick to drill through and there wouldn't have been any way to press the button!! I ended up replacing the cover of the keychain with a clear piece of plastic so that the batteries can be changed...I think it looks more gizmo-like, too. I capped the end with a watch crystal and a blue half-marble.


The seam ripper! I was perplexed as to how to get this in too so it would be usable and replacable if necessary, so it's just jammed up in there with some thick foam on either side. Cheesy


Push-a de button...


Yay!

Anyhoo, it was a fun project and I'm glad spidermom likes it. Hope she can use it in her sewing adventures! ALLONS-Y!

"Who looks at a seam ripper and says this needs to be a little more sonic?"
"What, you've never had to tear apart an entire project in one night?"

It's adorable, and as someone who's had to tear apart an entire project, a sonic seam ripper would have been great. Cheesy

Adding my voice to the chorus - I WANT!  That is such a brilliant idea.
