I have a little block of wood that I slip inside purses or other unusual items to press the seams open. I just hold the wood and the item midair, then press the iron against it.
It's also great for that final press of purse corners, from the right side of the fabric.
I mentioned this block of wood in my camera accessory case review, but I know that everyone can't read every review, so thought I'd post it as a tip.
The web link at the top of this page shows my block, and the other 5 photos in that album are of the camera accessory case.
