Sewing tool made by a blacksmith

We had a weekend up north and attended a blacksmith event at Hartwick Pines State Park. Among the items for sale, to my surprise, I found this corner turner made by Owen Creteau from CJ Forge . The blacksmith's wife is sewer and she asked him to make one of these for her. He also made a awl, but it looked a bit too lethal for me.

My husband is an amateur artist blacksmith, his copy of the design is on the right. What a step up from the plastic corner turners that I am used to.

While up north I did make some progress on the diaper bag for Jessica. She will be having a baby girl on October 1st. The raw edges of the pockets will be covered by the handles.


  1. Now that's a cool corner turner and I think your hubby did a great job copying it. I wouldn't even know where to start.

    The diaper bag is beautiful! Thank you thank you. I spy some fabrics other than those we selected. It is wonderful.
    Thanks for posting it.
