    I use a rubber mallet from my DH. Not sure he knows he "gave" it to me, though!

    Yes, I love my wacker. I even have to hide it from my son. He thinks that he can use it on anything. I told him it's only for fabric, like my scissors.

    Yes, I did think you were crazy, or kidding! Steam and whack, steam and whack -- I can do this!

    when sewing purses, the "whack" works just fine with a hammer with some batting on the head of it. makes for nice flat seams that are thick........jacie

    What a great idea. I use the flat end of a meat tenderizer.

    Yup, I use my DH's big rubber mallet, with clean plastic wrap over it of course. Matter of fact I do the same thing to pound chicken breasts or tenderloin for carpaccio. He thinks I'm nuts when I clean the rubber and the wood handle, even though it has not touched the product.
