    Found another great use for those Clover Wonder clips

    I had half a dozen jeans to hem. Half-way through this project the light came on.
    Why don't I try these clips instead of getting scratched and poked with pins.
    Worked great and made things go so much faster. Just thought I'd share.

    Smart idea! I have been making bags with linings and I keep sewing the lining completely closed so I don't have a way to turn the bag right side out. Now I put a clover clip where I need to stop on the seam and another one where I need to restart sewing. I haven't had to unsew a lining seam for a while now!

    It pays to think outside the box! Good suggestions - will keep them in mind.

    I use them to hold the bindings until I get it hand sewn on. Makes it so much easier and faster.
    I will remember this when I get around to hemming my summer capris as bermuda type shorts.

    Has anyone used the larger clips? Would I get as much use from them as I do the smaller clips.

    I buy spices in little bags and the Wonder Clips hold them tightly closed after I have opened one.
