Product Review and Giveaway: Wonder Clips from Clover

Lazies, I worked with Clover Needlecraft’s hot, hot, hot new notion Wonder Clips on my recent paper keeper project for Nancy Zieman’s blog hop. Let me just say, I’m in love.

Smart, useful and cool to boot. What is not to love. I say Wonder Clips are as essential as pins.

The clips have a red piece and a clear piece. The clear is a flat piece of plastic with markings that relate to the width of your binding.

The red part is curved to accommodate the bulk of the binding. So, between the ingenious flat side and the curved red side, your project lays flat against the bed of your machine while you sew. Simply remove the clips as you approach the needle.

Wonder Clips come in packs of 10 or 50. The 50 count has this dandy holding case. It’s a solid, sturdy case.

 To use, simply attach your binding as usual. Fold binding to the back and clip.

Notice that the clips go just to the edge of the binding. That helps ensure the same amount of binding is turned under.

Simply stitch in the ditch by machine, removing clips as you go. Or stitch binding in place by hand.

Wonder Clips also work well for:
– Holding handles in place on a bag project
– Keeping layers together while stitching seams
– Working with laminates or leathers that should not be pinned

  22. Deb — January 23, 2012 @ 9:46 am

    Great idea! This will be a great replacement for the clothespins I usually use. Plus, RED is my favorite color!

  23. Nikki McDonald — January 23, 2012 @ 9:48 am

    Thanks Clover, you keep on improving my sewing ability. I made 3 Nook covers for Christmas presents and sure could have used those clips for the binding. 68 and still learning new tricks.

    There are probably more uses for these, so when I get my free clips, I will discover their additional usefulness.

    Way to go Clover!!! A Big “THANK YOU” to you! The Wonder Clips are definetly on my list of “Gotta Haves!” If I don’t win them I will without a doubt purchase them!!!! May even buy them anyway and hopefully I’ll have 2 boxes 🙂

  46. Dee Duckworth — January 23, 2012 @ 10:05 am

    Thank you to Clvoer for designing a truly useful product…I was just given a gift of the 10 package and I was so happy with them. they stayed put while I was hand sewing on my binding…and I have a really cushy lap (lol).
    I also tried these to hold pieces fused with heavy-duty stabilizer which was too thick for pins. Worked like a charm!
    I would LOVE to win more of these so I could hold longer sections of binding in place 🙂

  47. Susan K — January 23, 2012 @ 10:05 am

    Thank you Clover for all the great products for the sewing community and thank you Joan for introducing us to new things. Maybe now I’ll pull out that 15 yr old wall hanging that I can’t bear to bind. 50 is Nifty really applies in this case.

  48. lisa e. — January 23, 2012 @ 10:05 am

    what a great product. thanks Clover..I am hemiparetic since suffering a stroke in Sept. I can see lots of uses for these clips as I learn one handed sewing….

  49. Melissa — January 23, 2012 @ 10:06 am

    Thank you, Clover, for saving my finger tips from pin sticks and my sanity from an uneven binding!!!

  50. June Prenger — January 23, 2012 @ 10:08 am

    Thank you Clover for these great clips. They will be on my “to purchase” list, for sure.
