I love to use pattern weights instead of pins when cutting out a pattern!  Instead of inserting a jillion pins into pattern and fabric, you can just lay a handful of weights down to keep the pattern in place while cutting around it.

Elizabeth from Oh, Fransson! shares a tutorial on her blog how she created her own pattern weights.  The small fabric pouches are filled with pennies, 50 in each one.  What a great idea!  The pennies are a weighty filling that literally costs just pennies.  Get the tutorial.
