    Where has this wonderful tool been all my life

    I recently purchased a box of Clover Wonder Clips and they are just amazing. I have been using them instead of pins for all different things and they are so great. They are tiny so they don't get in the way. I love, love, love them. I got them on Amazon by the way.

    That's great to hear because I just bought a package, but haven't used them yet!

    Got mine at Hancock's a few weeks ago on sale. Had a small box & now bought the box of 50. Love them for binding and especially for holding straps when making purses.

    They are worth the cost. I use to think hair clips were the best until I tried these. No comparison. I had a 50% coupon for JoAnns. My two DDs and their friends get the flyer with coupons but never use them so I had them stop and each buy the large package for me. I have 250 of them. Enough to share because if anyone borrows a few they never get returned. LOL
    Got fabric?

    Watch your office supply places. I bought clips from Staples Offfice Supply - 30 for $1.00 on sale. They came in three different sizes. They are metal spring action in bright colors and work great. I love them. (Needless to say I bought several packs and am set for life.....) I'm sooooo cheap

    I love them too! I have used them more than I thought I would. They are worth the money.

    They work better than pins when matching up corners and keeping points pointy. They have a flat side so they don't buckle the fabric and cause problems. I have 10 and I count them every time I use them and put them back in the container. It works for me!

    these do NOT work the same as the clover clips...they work for they are meant for, but do not lie flat, nor have the teeth and they are bulky and have the handles that get in the way.....I use binder clips for my paper piecing patterns though!

    They are wonderful little things, I have problems with pins (stick myself to much) so I've really used mine .
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...

    I also use a few on my little herb packages I get to keep the package closed tightly after I open them. Also have grabbed a couple to close chip bags. And I do use them in my quilting studio also. Wonderful things.

    I had a 50% off coupon for JoAnn's, too, but all they had when I went in was a package of 10. I'll keep watching.

    I have been wanting to try them but at 54 cents each I would hate to try them only to find out I don't like them! LOL Has anyone found they don't care for them, and why?
