Sewing clips are a great alternative to sewing pins. I think that you need to have both clips and pins in your sewing room. But, you maybe wondering with all the different brands of sewing clips out there, which one do you need to buy. So, it this I’m going to show you 5 different packs of clips that are all great.
You can also use the plastic clips for other craft projects, not just sewing projects. You can use them for hand sewing or also when using a sewing machine.
The little clips are great for sewing. They hold the layers of fabric together like pins. But, they don’t leave holes in your fabric, or poke your finger like pins can do. Both clips and pins have their place in sewing.
You maybe wondering which one is better pins or clips. To me it’s just a matter of personal preference. I personally like and use them both. They each have so many good points it’s hard to choose. And they’re really alike notions, because they’re both used to hold your fabric layers together before you stitch them.
Here is the post I did on sewing clips vs sewing pins, where I list their pros and cons.

The 5 Best Sewing Clips
When buying sewing clips there are a couple of things to think about. What the price is, how many clips there are in a pack, and the quality of the sewing clips.
The price of sewing clips vary, depending on the brand and how many clips there are. I don’t always get name brand sewing supplies, sometimes I will. But, then sometimes I’ll get an off brand that’s a little cheaper and they’re just as good as the more expensive ones.
You can get packs of clips that have anywhere from 10 to 200 clips. It just depends how many clips you’d like. It really doesn’t take that many sewing clamps for smaller projects. But, if it’s a larger project you’re working on, it will take a few more clips.
My favorite clips are the ones that come in a variety of colors. I love bright colors and I like for my sewing supplies to be colorful.

1. Clover Wonder Clips
Clover is one of the top brands of sewing clips. Clover also has so many other great things for sewing and quilting. Sewing clips have flat sides on the bottom of the clips. To make for easy feeding going toward the presser foot.
This pack has 50 fabric clips in a variety of colors. And the clips have seam allowance markings on the inside of the clip base.
2. Clover Jumbo Clips
Okay, here is another clover brand of clips. The difference is that this are jumbo clips. They’re bigger then the clips above, so that makes them great for thick layers of fabric or for thicker fabrics.
This Clover jumbo wonder clips pack only has green clips, and has 24 clips. I love that clips have different sizes. My favorite sizes for clips are probably the smaller clips.
3. Ottemax Sewing Clips
This pack has 120 sewing clips, and they come in different colors. The amount of quilting clips in this pack are great for larger projects.
4. Doukey Sewing Clips
These clips are the clips that I use. It has 49 small clips in the pack with different colors of clips. And this pack also comes in a plastic storage box.
5. Mr. Pen Sewing Clips
Here is the last set of clips I’m recommending in this post. This is a pack of 30 colorful clips.
And there are many other different multipurpose sewing clips you can buy. Some even have a storage tin that comes with the clips. I just picked 5 different packs of sewing clips for this post. But, you can find so many more. You can find the sewing clips at your favorite craft or fabric store, but you can find a greater selection on Amazon. And the free shipping you can get on Amazon doesn’t hurt either.
Any kind of sewing clips are a great addition to any sewing kit.
Also for sewing you may need a rotary cutter and mat. That’s what I use to cut all my quilting fabric. You can get the straightest pieces of fabric, and the squarest squares using a rotary cutter and mat.
You will need a thimble too. I have a ring thimble, that to me works better than a traditional thimble. A thimble is very important for hand sewing, so you don’t poke your finger trying to push the needle through the fabric.
And of course you’ll need a needle and thread. And unless you’re going to hand sew you’ll need a sewing machine. And you’ll also need to have a seam ripper around.
But, buying sewing supplies doesn’t have to break the bank. You can find all kinds of reasonably priced items on Amazon. None of it has to be name brand stuff and you don’t have to buy the most expensive .
