Small Magic Clip™
Taylor Seville Small Magic Clips™ are ideal for holding several layers of fabric together for hemming, quilting, patchwork, embroidery and many other craft projects. A great alternative to pins as they do not leave a mark on the materials used. These clips are 1¾ inch long and are made of quality stainless steel and plastic. Taylor Seville Small Magic Clips™ have markings at 1/4" and 1/2" on top of the clip which are clearly visible while machine stitching. The clips are flat and can easily go under the presser foot with a 1/8" clearance to the needle tip. Comes in a pack of 6,12, and 24 clips.
The etched fraction markings near the base of the clip (1/4", 1/2") refer to the the two lines that appear at the top of the clip. The first line from the top of the clip is 1/4" and the second marking is 1/2" from the top of the clip. You get your measurement starting from the top of the clip. The needle of the sewing machine must clear the clip by at least 1/8th of an inch. To achieve a 1/2" hem you must have a seam allowance of 5/8"(1/8" needle clearance + 1/2" of fabric fold under the clip). Please watch the video tutorial here
