PROBLEM: I don’t know about you, but when I am sewing small projects that require turning, I always dreaded it. It always seemed that my fingers were too big to fit in the small openings I left in the fabric. I figured there had to be a better way.
I turned to our medical specialists and doll / teddy bear makers. It “Turns” out that a surgical hemostat or locking pliers, works fantastic for clamping and assisting turning for small fabric projects. They are not sharp, can reach into the smallest places, and lock on to the fabrics allowing you to easily pull the fabric right side out. Since the tips are typically rounded, they can also be used to help push out the corners.
I hope you enjoy this trick! I should be able to pull more tricks from my hat between now and November 3rd.
