Item details

A Tailor's clapper is a tool that helps you get amazingly crisp, flat pressed seams and creases.
To use it, you first press your seam with a hot iron and lots of steam.
Immediately after lifting the iron, you place the clapper over the seam and hold it down until the fabric cools. This traps the heat and steam in the fabric, making the seam as flat as possible.
If there is one pressing tool every sewer needs in their sewing room, it is the Tailor's clapper.
This simple tool is the secret to professional looking pressed garments and yes, quilts!
One try and you'll see the difference.
Also use the Tailor's clapper for pressing creases in trousers, pressing pleats, tucks, collars, cuffs, lapels, hems and more.
Quilter's will love the clapper for keeping tiny seams pressed in their correct direction.
Craft and Embroidered quilt enthusiasts will love how it flattens thick seams with fusible batting, they stay pressed open when you use the clapper.

The Maple Tailor's Clapper are sanded smooth and with no added Finish.
Measurements are 8" inches long 3 1/4" wide at one end, and 2 1/4" on the other. The Clapper is Aprox. 1.5" to 1.75" inches thick, with grooves on each side for easier handling.

These are great tools - I use them for my quilt blocks. They are unfinished and absorb steam but are very smooth. Very happy with the purchase:
