Something I have grown to love having in my sewing room is pattern weights. Truly a sewing essential! Up until a few years ago I pinned all of my patterns. While this is not only time consuming, it also limits the use of a rotary cutter, which I like to use and certainly speeds the cutting process.
I was in need of some extra small weights, and found this tutorial at the blog Piccoli Piselli, so I thought I'd give it a try. If you've never visited this blog, I highly recommend it! The name is Italian for "Little Peas" and her style is playful, creative and refreshingly "real life". Paired with her talent for photography, it's guaranteed to entertain and inspire!
As for the tutorial, it was super simple and the weights turned out lovely!
|Supplies needed: Large Washers, Hot Glue & Ribbon|
|Glue 2 of the Washers together for a more substantial weight.|
|Wrap Washer tightly in ribbon, hot gluing beginning and end.|
|Voila! New Pattern Weights!|
|Putting them to use!|
Pattern Weights. One of those simple things that makes sewing even more fun!
