Easy Way to Turn a Tube of Fabric Right Side Out
"I was working on a bag design and wanted to create a particular type of handle. Not the usual bag handle where you simply fold the fabric into 4 and top stitch. I wanted a ‘nicer' handle, one with two different fabrics so it would be reversible and feature both of the fabrics from my bag. What was stopping me? Turning the darned thing the right side out again once I had stitched the tube! It's bad enough on a tube of regular fabric, but both of these pieces were interfaced making them thick and stiff too. It just all bunches up and gets too thick to turn. I don't mind telling you I flung it across the room and cursed loudly. My cat hid under the bed! Until I tried the straw and chopstick trick. Or rather, in this case, the plastic hose and wooden dowel trick. At last! Success. Here's how it works."
