Sewing Stilettos

mcthea | Posted in Fiber Arts on

In the June 2020 edition, number 209, the article on Sewing Stilettos included a wooden handled ice pick as a stiletto substitute.  I have the exact ice pick in my sewing studio. I found mine in a hardware store.  I did not buy it to use as a stiletto, however.   I bought it because the round wooden ice pick cover makes an excellent seam pressing aid for small spaces.

    That's very cool! It's another reminder that you can find good tools in unusual places. Thank you for sharing!

    I use a sharpened wooden chopstick. I left the sharpened end slightly blunt and it makes a great point turner, as well. And my iron doesn't hurt it!
