I have made simple fabric-covered pattern weights before, however this idea to use a rectangular shape is very helpful. Now that I use my pattern weights almost exclusively instead of pinning, I find I cant begin to lay out my patterns on fabric until I have gathered all the weights ahead of time. Pattern weights save time and finger pricks!

Pattern weights are an essential in any sewing room, and these are really fun! They'll make you look forward to sewing even more.
