Wow. These new Clover Jumbo Wonder clips #3157 have great holding capacity for many craft projects. The Clip opens wide to hold several layers of fabric or whatever you need to keep in place. They are a great alternative to pins, especially when working with vinyl's, piles, and heavy weight fabrics. The bottom plate of the clip features seam allowance markings and slides easily on the sewing machine deck. The rounded nose allows the foot of your machine to ride along the front for neat stitching. These are a wonderful time saver. They make sewing and crafting more enjoyable while contributing to a finer finished product. You will wonder what you did without these when you use them on your next project.

I sew a lot of microfiber blankets and pajama pants for people in my life and for charity. I generally use a serger for construction because it lends itself well to that kind of sewing. Running over an overlooked pin can ruin your serger blades, but with high pile fabrics, it's easy to do. These clips have completely solved that problem! They are flat on one side so lay flat on your sewing surface. The flat side features 1/4", 1/2", 3/4" and 1" seam allowance markings so you can easily clip them to the allowance you want.
These jumbo clips open wide but clamp down securely, even on thin or multiple, thick layers of fabric so they help prevent fabric slippage. If you are sewing leather, ultra-suede or delicate fabrics which are marred by pin holes, these clips are the answer.
I often teach children to sew and help my mentally disabled daughter to sew small things. These clips are so much safer than pins, which can easily be lost and end up in the bottom of someone's foot.
For quilting, machine or hand, these are the best things I've found for holding cut and pieced blocks together, as well as holding the final, sandwiched quilt together during the actual quilting process.
If you sew or quilt, I think you will love these clips, too.
Updated on 7-12-14: I found more uses for these!
hang clothes to dry outside
clip important paper together
clip important paper onto my file tray
fastened to clothing when a button fell off. worked great!
stabilize orchid plant on a bamboo stick. the green color blends nicely.
fasten air plants/tilandsia to tree branches.
drape quilt over stand and fasten with two of these clips to keep quilt in place.
Clip skirts/tops/pants on hangers. You would be amazed by how strong the grip is.
There is a hole on the base. Get a small nail with a head and attach these clips to the nails on the wall. Great organization.
Tie a string to the hole. Use for hanging: dry herbs, hang plants, dry small towels, etc.
Bottom line- Both are fine, Urbest came in more colors and was less money. If I had to give one set away, I would let go of the Urbest, but I am happy with both and will mix them together.
