    What are these?

    I bought these, I even remember doing it. But, for the life of me I can't remember what they are for. Anybody?

    They look to me like bias bars for making bias applique strips.

    I agree. I have a set of these. If you don't find instructions for using, let me know and I will send them to you.

    Just a wild guess....they look like something we used to call "stays"....Could be used to hold sides of bags or totes or some such thing from being so floppy?

    They remind me of what I used when I made a chenille throw. I had to use strips of cutting mat and slide them in between the half inch seams. Then I used my rotary cutter on top of those and it made the chenille.

    I wonder where I put them? lol

    My first thought was 'stays' also. They used to slide into the points of the collars of mens dress shirts so they would lay down smoother.
