What To Use As Pattern Weights


What do you use as pattern weights?

I’ve got some nice fancy examples in the image above; a lovely traditional old hot iron and a professional pattern weight, but so many things will work just as well.

Here are a few ideas:

* old hot irons
* purpose made professional pattern weights
* paper weights
* traditional weighing scale weights
* big washers from any hardware store
* cans of food
* even bean bags!

Basically anything with a flat surface to keep your pattern and fabric nice and flat…….ie. not pebbles.

What do you use?
