I love them! Actually, I’ve had a pair around for a long time, bought and sometimes used as a needle puller, which is one of the intended purposes for this common surgeon’s tool. I only recently learned about their additional role as great point-turners, thanks to Pam Erny, from the Creative Machine mailing list. In addition to offering a firm grip and smooth, strong, and tiny tips, they’ve got a simple locking function, so you can squeeze them shut, hook the handles together, and let go without losing your grip.
I prefer to cut out the details as needed from the scraps, which also encourages me to refold and reexamine the scraps to get the most from them. This approach also lets me double-check each detail’s size and shape (for example, pocketwelt lengths) against the main pieces exactly when I need them, as I’m remarking them and thinking about nothing else. Here are the most likely options you’ll need to consider before you start cutting out: Pocket shaping The front garment piece is cut out and ready to be styled for pockets.
B. Fold outlet over pocket and secure the raw edge. Secure inner edges of pocket facing to pocketing with zigzag stitch. Fold pocketing to extend beyond side-seam allowance. Pants front Pants front Trim the pocketing edge to match the pant-front fold line at the pocket mouth, as shown in drawing A. Then reinforce the opening on the pocketing with either handbasted-in or fused-on stay tape to keep the pocket edge from stretching during wear. You could reinforce the pant front instead, but I think putting the tape on the pocketing makes the finished edge smoother.
