How to Make Pattern Weights - a Free Sewing Tutorial

These pattern weights are quick and easy to make using fabric scraps and a filling of rice or even sand. The weights are perfect for holding paper pattern pieces in place while you cut them out using a rotary cutter. Using a rotary cutter to cut pattern pieces is a quicker process than using scissors, and using pattern weights also saves time because you don’t have to pin all the pieces in place. To use, simply place the pattern pieces on top of the fabric, position them and place the pattern weights on top, then cut the fabric using a rotary cutter.
