In September I was in Target to get a flu shot. I had to wait for a few minutes, so I was wondering around the hair care section near the pharmacy. I found bobby pins and I thought may be they would be good for securing the binding to a quilt while hand stitching it on. Fast forward to yesterday, I was sewing the binding on to the 2012 Craftsy BOM and I used the bobby pins from Target. They worked perfectly! The bobby pins slipped right over the binding edge with no struggle, held the fabric securely, did not pinch the fabric and left no marks in the fabric, and I did not get struck with any pins. I have been thinking about buying the Wonder Clips that people are raving about, but the bobbie pins worked perfectly. I bought the brightly colored ones because they are easy for me to see, and they stick to my magnetic pin dish. They even securely held the mitered corners.
