The Wonder Of Clover Wonder Clips - Clip And Sew Where You Need It!

There are times when sewing that anyone will feel like they need more than two hands to maneuver and hold their fabric or sewing project as it is being sewn through the machine. I have certainly felt that way a number of times! I am happy that there are wonder clips when straight needles will not suffice!  Wonder Clips are curved on the top and flat on the bottom for easy feeding by the presser foot. That is one of the reasons they are called "Wonder Clips." Straight pins can offset the timing of your sewing machine if the sewing machine needle hits the straight pin holding the fabric in place. If you do not know how to set the timing on your sewing machine, then you would have to pay a visit to your local sewing machine dealer to reset the timing on your machine which does incur a cost for setting the timing on your sewing machine.

Wonder Clips are a great alternative to pins, especially when working with heavy weight fabrics, piles, and vinyls. The clips can hold layered sections of sewing projects such as handle connectors to handbags and piping without distortion. Wonder Clips can also hold quilt binding while sewing. These clips have a wide opening for holding multiple layers of fabric. They won't damage or distort the fabric.

The clip base is flat for easy feeding to presser foot with 1/4" and 1/2" seam allowance markings on the base. I like to use Wonder Clips for holding pleats on skirts, curtains, and the sleeves on men's shirts. Wonder Clips have a firm grip on the fabric and they are excellent when used on quilting projects. Wonder clips do not damage or distort the fabric. They should be a necessary tool of anyone's sewing room. I use Wonder Clips frequently when I sew formal dresses so that the formal stays perfect without any flaws on it from sewing the formal.

Wonder clips come in different sizes and  quantities in a package. It depends on your sewing project on what size of wonder clip you will need. A heavier fabric or multiple layers of fabric will need a larger wonder clip while a less thicker fabric will require a smaller wonder clip. The smaller wonder clips are handy in holding small bows in place while you are hand sewing them in place or gluing them into place. I use them for holding trim such as lace in place while I sew. They are good for holding craft projects in place after gluing until the glue is dried. You can find some Clover Wonder Clips here for your sewing needs. They are for everything from sewing to arts to crafts!
