Clipboard replacement by Lumeha 3 months ago

I just thought I would share, because it's what I have been doing in the past few weeks since I have begun making bracelets :)

I am always seeing people recommending using clipboards to hold the bracelet down while you are tying, but for some reason, I couldn't find a clipboard where I live (France if you are curious). I ended up buying some binder clips for cheap (like... 1? ?) and took a thin, rigid picture book I had in my personal library (that could be replaced by anything that is rigid enough to be honest), and combining the two makes a pretty good makeshift clipboard

(sometimes I also use the binder clips to hold down the bracelet on something else, like my jeans - I tend to prefer them to safety pins for that :) )

yep, same issue here. clipboards are a thing of the past it seems. So i also bought binder clips. Out of a package of catfood (nice and strudy cardboard) i cut an A5 sized rectangle. I find the smaller size to be easier to work on than A4, like a clipboard. I work in the sofa with the thing on my lap.

The binder clips also have the advantage that they are flat and will hold your sorted thread in the sorted order. This way you can make your first row "against" the flat of the clip and it will be very neat.

Usually you can get clipboards at a dollar store or (In North America), Staples or Walmart. They can be tricky to find though. I find that using a safety pin on my jeans or a blanket/towel works best for me. :)
