Favourite Things: Clover Magic Clips

I've long loved these little #sewing clips but I'm truly appreciating them now as I try my first shaped collar and in a stretchy knit! They hold tightly enough to be placed right on an edge, fold, or hem and (assuming the seam is wide enough, this particular one isn't) they have a clear 'bottom' so that they can slip along beside your sewing machine foot without needing to be removed. They seem a little expensive compared to pins but I'm glad I got them. I've seen some bulky ones for, naturally, bulkier fabric (like knitted or woven pieces) and I think I'll chase them down, too.
