    Clover Wonder Clips

    Would I want the regular or jumbo sized wonder clips if I plan to use them to hold my binding in place while sewing?

    The regular are the perfect size for binding. But, if you move your quilt around a lot (I do because I hand bind and pick up and put down the quilt a lot), then I suggest the little clips that are like hair clips. Ummm, don't use them in your hair as they will pull out your hair. yeah, ask me how I know.

    When you clip them closed, they are firmly in place.

      I use the regular size and they are perfect for me when I hand bind my quilts!

        I love the regular size Wonder Clips. Mine hang on really tight, even on the corners when I hand sew.

          I have both and the big ones are too big for your binding. I use them for other things. Regular size are perfect.

            I have both sizes but I use the smaller one for binding. I do the bindings by hand and it is perfect for this.

              I like the small ones for binding, I've never had one fall off yet!

                I just finished my binding and said to myself, man I love those binding clips! They are amazing! I just use the regular ones.

                  Thanks so much! I'm so glad I asked before I ordered the jumbo clips that I had on my Amazon wish list!

                  Thanks for the suggestion! I might have to order these, too! One can never have too many sewing gadgets, right?

                    I totally agree-I tend to buy all sorts of sewing gadgets. Someone in the forum suggested the hair binding clips last year and I bought them on a whim. Glad I did. I like both the wonder clips and the hair ones. The biggest difference I have noticed so far is my husband tends to "borrow" my wonder clips for little household things (he leaves the hair ones alone). Oh well, better than borrowing my scissors.

                      Love these little clips for binding. I got the 10 pack free when I placed an order with M* a few months ago.

                        I bought hair clips at Dollarama for a fraction of the price and they work just as well.

                          I got the first pkg of 10 on a DD and I loved them. Got a box of 50 at Amazon for around $16, which was much cheaper than buying the little packs of 10 at regular price of $7. They're not only great for binding but other things too, such as holding my numbered fabrics for foundation piecing. I also use them a lot when I'm getting my blocks ready to sew together. I stack the whole row, label and put on a binder clip til I'm ready to sew everything together. It's amazing how organized that I can be when the mood strikes!

                            Santa bought the big box of regular (red) Wonder Clips on a Black Friday sale and tucked them in my stocking.

                            I really like them for bindings and holding seams together while hand-sewing openings of pillow covers & stuffed animals too. I haven't had them long enough for them to be the first thing I grab though.

                              I also use regular and I really love them. I use them when I am making purses and, actually, whenever I can substitute them for pinning.
