Mini but Mighty

I've just purchased these little wonders... for holding my binding in place... & they are fantastic!
I've seen them around but never used them...but on Saturday I purchased a packet & used them last night on a hanger binding...& they are well worth the $$. I usually just use pins... & I'm forever getting pricked by them OR the thread manages to catch around the point/head...
but NOT with these little cuties.
Oh & by the way I'm NOT being paid to say this...BUT of course I could be if  Sew Easy wanted to send me $   I'm just sharing the joy!
