Bright idea: Binder clips

  I've discovered that these little beauties can be very handy in the sewing room.

   I needed to hold a tape measure steady at one end while I measured a couple of long pieces of fabric.  Tried a spring clothespin, but that wasn't holding the tape as tightly as I needed ... so grabbed the binder clip in a pinch (ha, ha) and it worked!

   I suspect it also would be good for holding stacks of fabric (like quilt pieces).
