I was in desperate need of something to hold my patterns down with while I was cutting I always used random objects that were around- scissors, my phone, children’s toys… Then I realized! There’s an easier way! So I made a few pattern weights from random material laying around.
Here’s how. Cut two triangles, as shown. Turnt hem inside out and sew together along the edges leaving a small opening.
Then you can fill them with various things: dried beans, rice, popcorn kernels. sand…. I think I used bulgur wheat. How weird does that sound? I have bulgur wheat pattern weights. Then just stitch up your hole by hand or machine. Then you end up with these pretty little ditties.
Let’s just stare at them because of their cuteness.
I hope you guys make some cute little patten weights. Even if you don’t use them they’re just fun to look at
