Today I’m talking you about my Point Presser/Clapper: a pretty cool pressing tool you certainly need if you love to sew and that will undoubtedly level-up your sewing creations!
It can make your life easier when pressing seams (because you press your seams while you sew, don’t you?), helping them to settle down and make a perfect (and lasting) crease, even if they are on a collar or other narrow/pointy/hard to reach places (using its upper portion).
You can obviously buy one of those clapper/pointy pressers*, if you prefer but, if you love to create your own pressing tools like I do, follow me and I’ll tell you how hubby made mine. I couldn’t believe my eyes, when I saw it the first time (I mean the clapper, not hubby ;)). I saved a huge lot of money since the wood board was a gift from a friend carpenter and the jigsaw* was Santa’s gift to hubby 😉

Back to business: you may be wondering what a clapper/point presser is.
It basically is two tools in one: the rectangular base is the clapper, while the weirdly-shaped upper portion is what we define a point presser.
Today I will share with you my templates I designed and used to give hubby instructions to create it, while later this week I will give you more detailed instructions about types of wood, which tools to use and maybe some suggestions to use it at its best.
