Weight for it....

I love to sew, but I hate pinning when cutting out patterns. For years I've been weighing my pattern down with soup cans and other random household objects. But I had a light bulb moment and decided to start using washers as pattern weights. Ingenious I tell you and oh so cheap. Now I can cut out a pattern lickety split with my rotary cutter and not worry about the pattern piece shifting over the fabric, nor do I waste time pinning. These were super simple to make. I picked them up from my local Ace Hardware. They have all size washers to chose from. You can leave them plain or like me you can cover them with a bit of scrap fabric for a little more pizazz. I just attached the fabric using my glue gun, easy peasy. WooHoo...more time to sew.
