    I love my Purple Thang! Great for using like a stiletto, running ribbon in a casing, and I even use it to hold up my hair when I have a power surge!

    I have one of those. I know you can use it to remove those little white bits of leftover paper when peicing. The slit is to run a ribbon through so you can hang it around your neck and keep it close at hand. It works great as a stilletto. I'm not sure what else but I just had to have one to because it was purple.

    I never thought I'd use mine but boy it's handy. I use it to push out corners, hold down the 1/4 inch seam allowances at intersections, help turn tiny objects inside out, the 1/4 inch gauge is handy....I did thread a piece of ribbon through the hole to hang it up and so it doesn't get lost.

    It was invented by Lynn Graves of Chama, NM for just the uses you describe. She likes purple.

    I use it for pushing out corners and ends. I thing you can use it also to thread laces and elastic in things

    I love my Purple Thang! It sits beside my sewing machine, right next to my little sharp scissors. I reach for it all the time, even use it to pick fuzz of my foot. The foot the sewing machine that is ... I keep finding uses for it!

    I picked up one, and have already used mine for pushing out corners. I can see many uses for it. I also like purple.

    I bought one a couple of years ago - and now I need to find it and sounds like it will be a great tool.
