nifty tool/idea for turning a casing inside out

When you make a scrunchie or some such thing, after you stitch the long
narrow casing (where elastic goes in) on the wrong side, how to turn it
over to the right side? I tried to turn it over bit by bit but there's
got to be a better way to do it.

I hope I'm clear.

thanks.

That's one of the most useful gadgets I've ever bought.  Once you have one,
you'll find a number of things that they're useful for.  I've even used mine to
make an eye-splice in some very small diameter marine double braid line.

Mostly, I use it for pulling the loose end of a serged seam back into the seam
to finish it.

I  also love the Dritz tool, especially for small tubes, and spaghetti
straps.  But the long handle on the Dritz Loop Turner makes it a
little unwieldy for some jobs.  I also have a latch-hook tool which
came with my knitting machine, and I use it all the time for pulling
serge tails, etc. It's very much like:

Lay a string inside the casing before sewing the two sides together and
attach it to one of the ends....after sewing the casing sides, use the
string to help turn it inside-out.

I have the loop turner set near the bottom (blue plastic set).  It works
well for bigger items, but not spagetti straps.
