Sometimes you find yourself needing to turn a long, skinny fabric tunnel with a closed end: perhaps you are making a belt, or a bow-tie. And perhaps the fabric is too stiff or too fancy to poke the claw of your loop turner through. Here, we show you a quick and easy way to turn a closed tunnel without piercing the fabric.

    Or I used to use the eraser end of a pencil before I owned my loop turner!

    If you don’t own a loop turner yet you can use a knitting needle’s blunt end [a size 8 or so] Sometimes the loop turner hook can pierce the fabric used this way. Thank you
