    Wooden seam roller?

    Do you have one? Do you like it? Is it as good as an iron for small seams?

    Thanks!

    I use half of a wooden spring clothespin. Works great for small seams and is cheap as can be!

    I have used a mini-wooden pastry roller and it works.
    Also have use the plastic scraper thingy that you get with Pampered Chef stoneware.

    However, finger pressing to me is underrated ... I prefer to do REAL pressing!

    I use my mini roller for wallpaper seams. Works very well.

    Cold pressing doesn't work for me. But I found that if I want to open a seam a tracing wheel works pretty good to part the ways.
    Got fabric?

    That's what I use. Makes my hand hurt if I use it too much, but it WAS dirt cheap!

    I have a little wooden seam presser, I think I got it on Eleanore Burns web site. Its great for paper piecing.

    A WALLPAPER roller for seams does the same thing.

    I find it works well, I don't have room for an iron near my machine so it saves me walking back and forth as often
    The biggest risk is the one not taken
