Binding Tip!

How many of you pin your whole binding before sewing it down? I used to do that many, many years ago. I was stuck by a pin with almost every stitch! Then I started using binding clips and clipped the whole binding before I sewed it. These fell off or got messed up as I stitched. Now? I use ONE binding clip and move it a few inches in front of my stitches. When I stitch up to it, I move it on down the binding. SUPER SIMPLE and a Great Time Saver! Give it a try!

Thanks for stopping by and take care,




  1. I always pin and it is a pain, especially when I stick myself with them, lol.


  2. This is a great tip--I will have to give it a try

  3. I have always just used binding clips about 6 inches ahead of where I'm sewing. That way I never get stuck with a pin and I only need a few clips.

  4. I have these too, now I use the new Clover clips for quilting and they are absolutely great - I found mine on sale last year and stocked up on them. They are a little pricy, but they are great also for binding. I always google the item and find the best price.

  5. Super information Missie, will save us a lot of time.
