Fabric tube turning

Fabrics are often sewn inside out, in a tube form, or in a manner to allow a filler (such as cording) to be added. The process of turning the fabric tube has several variations. [http://www.sewing.org/files/guidelines/1_150_tube_turners1.pdf] Fabric can be turned with a blunt item such as a bobbin or chopstick, or with purchased tools such as the Fasturn, Loop Turners, or Hemostats.
