In this video I feature two new things I use when garment sewing:

• Wonder Clips: I love these clips! I use them for all my quilt bindings, when I’m sewing bulky fabrics together and for sewing stretch knits. They work great. You can get some HERE. 

• Clapper: I love my clapper!  Ever since watching (the super talented) Angela Wolf demo her clapper and how she uses it in her garments I knew I had to buy one.  They are a little pricey but definitely worth it. If you’ve ever struggled to press under hems or seams on stretch knits this is a must! With steam and a few seconds you get super flat and crisp fold lines and seams. It really makes my job a lot easier and don’t have to be fighting with my fabric. Saves a ton of time and gives garments a very professional finish. Use discount code: CRAFTYGEMINI10 to get 10% off your order at Angela Wolf’s online shop.  She sells clappers made locally to her in Michigan from high quality hardwood.
