    It's made from wood, is kind of flat, maybe 1/2" or so wide. I don't know how long or how thick, but it is used to push out corners when turning something right-side out. I've done notions searches on several sites and can't find it. Did I dream it up?

    I just use a chop stick or wood pencil (usually the eraser side).

    There is a tool to do it. I know someone will remember the name....

    Sounds like a stiletto to me.

    No, it isn't a stiletto. It's wider and flat. Imagine a tongue depresser that comes to a point rather than rounder but made from a much less flexible wood.

    You can use a shish kabob skewer to do that if you can't get to a LQS, Hancock's, Hobby Lobby or Joann's to pick one up. Hancock's and Joann's have 50% off all their quilting notions thru Monday.
    Are you talking about a wooden presser?

    I'm wondering if you are thinking of a point turner that Eleanor Burns uses....but I believe it's plastic. I use a bobkin.
