Not sure if this has been done before...

While I was making handles for tote bags yesterday I thought there must be an easier way to turn the handles inside out. I figured out a way and thought I should share it.

I made a little contraption. Its a piece of yarn (about 1m or 1yard long) tied to a safety pin.
Then all you do is pin the safety pin to one end of the tube and thread the yarn through the handle to the other end (a yarn needle helps hear). Now you just pull the yarn till the handle magically turns inside out. So easy!

This might not work well with very delicate fabrics, but it should be fine for most.

You can also use this technique when making scrunchies.

I used to do it that way until I got one of these:

Even faster!  Smiley  If you use a coupon it's only $5.00 or so.
