The Fasturn® is a hollow brass cylinder with a specially designed wire hook that makes turning fabric tubes fun! Magically fill fabric tubes with cord, batting or wire at the same time they are turned.

Set includes six cylinders ranging in size from 1/8" to 3/4" in diameter, with three different sized wire hooks.
Designed to make miniature projects much easier. Also helpful for button loops, frogs, and small jewelry projects. Set of 3, only 6" long, 1/8", 3/16" and 1/4" in diameter with two wire hooks. Great for making stained glass tubes.

This Seam Ripper can be used for taking out serger stitches by running the curve of the blade under the serger stitches. Use it for straight ripping by turning the blade over and using your machine presser foot as your third hand, use the tip or curve of the blade to "reverse stitch"

The Fasturn® tool can be used to make your own bias tubing for stained glass projects. By making your own bias tube you can make it any color you wish. Use batiste fabric, wash it first, make your tube and then apply 1/4" Steam-A-Seam 2® to the back side. You can position the tube exactly where you want it and steam it for a permanent bond. If you prefer to sew it down use either a twin needle or a single needle to sew the tube. The Steam-A-Seam 2® does not gum up your needle. You can make your own bias tubing for pennies instead of dollars!!
Why top designers choose Steam-A-Seam 2®:

Hope is a very simple stained glass wall hanging. It was made simple so that after making it, you can "Hope" to make something more difficult.
"Hope" is also depicted by the symbols on the wall hanging.
