I'm sewing away and in a little bit will be piecing my tote bag together. Well, the material I am using is slippery, not fabric, a piece of what would normally be considered trash. Plus, I've added layers, so two 'wrong' sides together is making a thick sandwich and slippage. Straight pins are what I normally use, but they can distort the sandwich and get unruly...as I'm waiting for my toast (told ya I'd be having a piece) it came to me...BINDER CLIPS! It will hold the fabric together nice and firm for me.
I realize it may be a little awkward unclipping it, but if I don't get too close to it with the needle it should be fine. I'm going to try because I think it will work beautifully and when it does, I will consider myself pretty clever! LOL
You will, too, won'tcha, won'tcha, won'tcha?
...oh I can be such a child...
