Shout out to Dritz....

So I had some nice comments about my Berry Sweet bag...and I got to thinking, that I need to share with you one of my favorite sewing tools.  It is called the Quick Turn by Dritz.  I found mine at Joanns some time ago.  I use it occasionally for purse handles or apron straps.  Makes like fast and a snap.  In this case, I used it on the strawberry leaves.  Yup.  You take the blue tube, put it into the unturned leaf, take the dowel rod, and gently shove the fabric through the tube.  EASY PEASEY.  I think I had all 12 turned in less than 2 minutes.  So, do yourself a favor and pick up a set.  They are relatively inexpensive.  The next time you have something to turn, you will be glad you did.
