    This was a bit more than I wanted to pay, but thought it might be worth it! You press the top of your point with a spurt of steam (like in a pinwheel where the points all come together) and then smack it with this hammer. It flattens that point,it really works, I am pleased. Guess you can use it on any seam that gives you a bump or issue.

    I don't know if it was smart, but it works and what is one more tools in my sewing room at this point? Anyone else have one?

    I guess I will have to go look through the toolbox.

    I have a rubber mallet that I bought for driving stakes for a tent. I suppose that would work just as well.

    I thought of the rubber mallet but thought it might leave a black mark on the material. This one is smaller which I liked.

    I bet there is a bit of satisfaction in getting to smack something that is bothering you....like bulky seams.

    Well I guess Nancy notion's is ok with it, and selling it. If I don't use it for that, I will use it for something else!

    I bought a small rubber mallet at Harbor Freight and it works really well. It was cheap, too.
