I had never thought of making a more sturdy alternative to the rolled up towel technique for pressing curved hems. This is really great and very easy to make (especially if your daughter has rabbits as I could steal some of their sawdust). The tutorial is really easy to follow and make, you do need to make sure that you follow all the instructions and stuff your sausage completely otherwise you will just iron it flat when doing your seams. This has made it so much easier to iron my small toy shirts without making them flat and out of shape.

This is one sewing accessory that you will be using all the time. Sign up for our free newsletter to see this featured next week along with other projects you didn't know you needed!
