Finger Press

Tip of the day!

Sew, you have forgotten to press your seams open and you've already got your project under the presser foot in the machine.

No problem, all you need is a finger press!  Or should I say, a good fingernail and a hard surface?

Open the seam with your finger . . . .

Use your fingernail against the hard surface of your machine or table and press hard down the seam --all the way down the seam--it will give a sound like a zipper if you did it right! (This is not just holding open the seam.)

Then sew on . . . .

And there you have it!  A finger press! :)

LOL :) I tend to improvise from time to time too.
