Let me just say this is the tip of the iceberg. I work at a place where we have many paper weights...and then people give us more for gifts. Since I am an avid sewer, I now use these to hold down pattern pieces while I am cutting fabric. Put small rubber grippers on the bottom of a weight or felt tabs. Enclose them by sewing them inside scraps of material, that makes them easy to lift and carry and they have great weight.

so clever---I may try sand or crushed walnut shells for fillers and line the fabric with muslin to prevent any escaping of thr filler

This is a good idea, but rather than the beans or rice use the little plastic pellets that you use for wieghting the bottom of a doll so she sits up.

These are absolutely what I was needing since I have a new grand baby girl and want to sew the premie clothes she needs; there's not that many out there...

love to try this but cannot open it... not the first on that i cannot open

made them this morning using old halloween and christmas scraps...filled with rice and have four done in a little over an hour and a half. :) LOVE em!

love this idea i will try to make this for me and my frends

The perfect gift idea for all my seamstress friends! You cannot ever have too many for yourself either. But I have to admit, for nostalgia,that I will probably still get out a can of mixed veggies!

Something so simple and necessary that can and will be quick and cute!! No more cans of corn and peas-hooray!! Thanks for the best idea of the quarter. These will make great personalized gifts for my sewing friends.

Love it! Thanks for sharing:)
