NATIONAL SEWING MONTH - DAY 14...

...
SEWING TIP OF THE DAY
(Maybe you've heard this, but just in case you haven't) 

Tired of pinning patterns to fabric?  Make your own pretty pattern weights using low cost hardware store washers of all sizes, pretty ribbons or trims, and a glue gun.  Mine are made using just a single washer.  To make heavier weights, wrap two or three washers together.

  2. I have just such a collection! Mine have 2 weights, and I made a smaller size set for smaller pattern pieces like collars and facings. They're so fun and my kids love playing with them.

  4. Great tip...I wrap mine in squares of fabric and tie them with ponytail holders. Gives them little "handles".
