A Chorus of Near Sighted Cats - A CRAFTER'S TOOL - PART 4
Can you guess why a seamstress would use a surgical tool?
Then Barb Leegwater came into the shop and operated on one of her cat creations, demonstrating with a hemostat – a surgical clamp used to control bleeding.
“I use a hemostat to snag a fabric end when I need to turn a cat’s long, skinny tail right-side out,” she said.
I stood awe-struck. Now, I have sewn since middle school, and I’ve spent hours struggling to turn apron ties or narrow belts. Many times I’d poke and prod with a pair of scissors trying to reverse the fabric strip. Inevitably, I’d punch a hole in the end, ruining the garment. Barb’s hemostat was a brilliant idea!
Stop in and give these cuddly creatures a hug. They’re heartwarming and sure to make you smile.
