Have you heard of Wonder Clips? Made by Clover – they are the best kept secret around! I heard about them a few months ago and have fallen in LOVE!! When pins just won’t work, try a few of these little guys..
I love sewing with clear vinyl and often use double fold bias tape to cover the edges. While the finished product looks great, the bias tape can be a real pain in the butt to sew on. Wonder clips work like a dream and help with the vinyl and pesky bias tape. One note of caution with the clips and vinyl – only clip in the seam allowances. The clips leave a small indentation in the vinyl. As long as you clip within the seam allowances the vinyl is ok.
Do you have trouble sewing on your binding? When sewing on binding, I often find myself cursing under my breath and questioning why I chose to make the “stupid” project in the first place. Wonder Clips hold the binding in place while you stitch in the ditch.
A few weeks ago I was taking a cosmetic bag class at my local quilting and sewing store. It had multiple zippers and I needed each zipper to lay flat. Pins just wouldn’t work and a fellow classmate advised to try using “Wonder Clips”.. Wonder Clips.. What? The clips held each zipper and fabric in perfect alignment. Thank you – finding out about the clips was my lucky day!
In a short time frame, these are just few benefits I have found. I’m sure there are more to come.
Fun stuff, right? Well you still have time to add these to your wish list. They make a great stocking stuffer!
