Tutorial: Yo yo fabric weights

Tutorial: Yo yo fabric weights

If you don’t already use pattern weights to keep your sewing pattern in place while cutting it from fabric, you really should give them a try.  They are so much faster to use than pins!  Michaela from Covered in Modge Podge shares a tutorial at The Ribbon Retreat showing how to make a set of yo yo pattern weights.  The insides of the pattern weights are heavy washers from the hardware store.  They’re covered in pretty fabric gathered up into a yo yo and embellished with a covered button.  Go to The Ribbon Retreat to get her tutorial.

    These might just make me brave enough to give up pins! Thanks!
