A growing trend among sewists is to avoid puncturing their projects' fabric by replacing pins with pattern weights to hold the edges in place. These Easy Breezy Pattern Weights are a great way to avoid unwanted holes, since store-bought pattern weights tend to be on the expensive side. Save money with this sewing 101 secret! Homemade pattern weights are incredibly easy to put together, and making your own allows you the flexibility to decide what shape and size you want. After working with these pattern weights, you'll never go back to poking holes in your projects again.

I often find myself looking around for something to put on the edge of pattern paper, or fabric, to keep it in place on my cutting mat. Very Nice https//www.emailhelpdesk.us/support-for-ATT.html

Pattern weights! Where have I been because I sure missed this great idea. I hate pinning when I cut out patterns and this is an easier way to cut pattern out by saving time. This is another great way to use up scrap fabric and the weights are so inexpensive alot of time you can pick up a pack with 2 in it at the dollar store. Simple and fast. Make a few extras for you friend sewers and introduce them to these pattern weights too.

I use pattern weights however, these are more stable and hold the fabric solidly...the smaller weights I made are good for corners and curves...these are perfect for long pieces i.e. pant legs, skirts and sleeves...The other benefit of being fabric covered is that they are easier to pick up from a flat position.

Another simple but great idea. I often find myself looking around for something to put on the edge of pattern paper, or fabric, to keep it in place on my cutting mat ( Ive discovered using my water glass is not such a good idea). And this is also a way of using up scrap fabric as well so Ill be adding the pattern to my to-do list for sure.
