Everytime I sew something with a sharp point, I search for an instrument that will help me push the fabric into the point without endangering it. I am always afraid that whatever instrument I select, will poke through and cause damage. I found my solution, and it's a shrimp deveiner. It is made from sturdy plastic with a good handle for gripping. The pointed end is sturdy, small, and rounded. Perfection!

A slender knitting needle or crochet hook will also work well, in a pinch.

How clever. However I don't have this kitchen gadget. Oh no, more kitchen gadgets to compete with all my sewing gadgets! (My sewing friends kid me because I go the "the Wall" before fabrics every time).
