Pressing the Corners

I wasn't quite satisfied with the All Day Tote that I recently made. The corners weren't square and because of the thick quilted lining, I wasn't able to iron them.

Before:
It Stands By Itself!! All Day Tote

So I clipped them for a few hours.
Clipping the Corners

After:
Sharper Corners

I think it helped! I have been using binder clips more and more with sewing as you can see from my new header. There are probably a thousand uses for clips!

What inventive ways do you use binder clips?

Don't forget! It's not to late for the apron giveaway!

In a pinch I've been known to use really big binder clips as a hair clip. (I just recommend removing them before going through a metal detector or you might waste a bunch of time trying to figure out what's setting it off!)
