    Do you ever use a quilting tool for other than what it was intended for?

    For example

    I use my seam ripper as a stiletto when I'm sewing

    I also use my Kwik Klip tool to help open up seams before pressing. It has saved me many a burnt finger when that seam folds over while I'm trying press it open.

    I guess you won't want to count the dining room table as a sewing table / layout table since it's not really a "quilting tool" (although it's used more for quilting than for anything else :).

    I use my half circle quilting template to make more than circles and to draw patterns out with.

    For a finger pressing tool ... use the little brown scraper that comes with your Pampered Chef stoneware.

    I use a heavy darning needle to pick out stitches, and I also use it for the large eye to bury threads when I quilt. It saves time using it for both, because it's right there.

    LOL- I use that brown scraper that came with the PC Stoneware when I use the depilator creams that are supposed to remove hair- I "shave" my legs with it!

    Maybe we should have a separate thread .... all the things to do with your PC brown scraper!! .... Love my PC stoneware!!

    The back story ... I was at my OBW course, and the teacher said to finger press each seam before adding the next piece of the hex. I'd never knew there was such athing, but one of the girls brought out a tool she'd purchased to do the job.

    So when I got home, I gave the scraper and try ... and bingo! :)
