It pushes, pokes, pulls, p-fudges, p-turns, p-stuffs. It makes its own uses. One end has a quick 1/4" measuring tool AND can be used to push the fabric to make gathers! Works great to finger press seams as well! The curved end is a great stiletto for pushing! The open slot in the middle is great for 1/2" (or smaller) elastic or ribbon to feed through casings for skirts, bags etc!
