I attended a presentation yesterday on pressing.
I was amazed at how a clapper helps a seam stay flat.
The presenter demonstrated it on jean fabric (as if heming jeans)
with the side seam being so bulky, she steamed one seam and the other she
steamed and clapped. Wow. it was so much flatter.
That got me thinking about all the seams in my blocks that won't stay flat.
I asked my DH if he could make one...he says 'I'll put it on the list'
so, he says how about a hardwood mason float?
After a search a local 'big hardware store' has them for $6.
It doesnt have a point presser on one side but for quilting
I'm not sure I would need one.
I'll send him out today for a float and see how it works.
