I love using pattern weights when cutting out pattern pieces from fabric, but to purchase them as a set is ridiculously expensive. Junie Moon shows how to make your own weights from heavy washers. They’re perfectly serviceable straight from the hardware store, but a bit of paint and some monogramming make them awesome. Go to the tutorial.
