I like the way these turned out, but hope I can find the clips at some point I am envisioning in my head so that I can make another set without the large oval loops.
I've had "make sweater clip" on my "to do" list for awhile now, but I haven't been able to find the type of clips I wanted to use. I finally settled withe these three materials: chain, cat buttons, and a "fashion fit clip" (those are the clips with the elastic attached that people would wear on the back of their vests in the 80s... that's all I could find at the craft and fabric store, so I cut the elastic off and used the two end clips.) They grip on to the garment without hurting the fabric, and are easy to get on and off. Sweater clips were worn often mid century. They are great for holding sweaters or shrugs on without having to have them buttoned, or even actually on.
