So I like taking shortcuts, wherever possible. If I can get a couple of things cut out beforehand on another day, that helps big time if I can skimp on ironing, even better. And pins - who needs pins when there are clothes pegs?
I saw a review of some new clover brand plastic clips for sewing - probably for quilting I think. I liked the idea, and went on the hunt for a similar ( but cheaper!) alternative. I was hoping to find some small plastic pegs ( my Mum had some years ago she used for pegging notes & letters together). I haven't found any small pegs yet, but did find these colourful plastic pegs in a local bargain shop.
I had been using wooden pegs for holding fabric together before sewing on the overlocker ( mainly because I am so paranoid about running a pin through the overlocker causing all sorts of disaster and chaos!) But sometimes the timber is a bit rough and snags the fabric. These little beauties have a rubbery insert, so no rough edges any more! I will keep looking for small plastic pegs, but in the meantime I like these cute bright colours!
PS 3 new t shirts sewn up last week - inc. stripes above. Must remember to take some pics to post.
