I was feeling kinda blue yesterday. I really wanted to work on some of my pattern alterations but I'd been having problems with my back lately and it felt pretty bad yesterday. So, standing at my cutting table was not an option for a few days in the past couple weeks. Since I couldn't really sew since I didn't have anything cut out & ready to work on I decided to browsed my favorite blogs to see what was happening with my online sewing friends. When I came to Faye's blog it caught my eye. She made some very pretty pattern weights out of large washers and pretty color ribbons. I thought what a great cheery idea and I instantly wanted a set for myself. Later in the day my back felt a little better and since I live pretty close to a hardware store & craft store I decided to go out. I was able to quickly find the washers and then went to the craft store and found some pretty ribbon on clearance. I almost began to have a little bounce in my step (almost). I got back home and in no time I had my very own set of pattern weights. Here's a pictorial of how they were made. I used fabric glue instead of hot glue, I think they both work fine, also I used two washers wrapped together on a few just for a little extra weight. You'll need ribbon about 28-30" inches long -by- 5/8 to 1" inch wide & just wrap to cover.Fold over and glue end to the back,
So easy and what a way to add some cheer to your sewing space. THANKS FAYE! I had to email Faye and thank her for brightening my day and it kept my day from being a total loss craft wise.
