weighting

by Nova on March 3, 2013

while procrastinating over fabric choices for the some garment sewing (namely this, this & this) I whipped up a little set of pattern weights in anticipation of aforementioned garment sewing & (yet to be selected) fabric cutting.

I wasn’t sure how many I’d need but they are super quick  to make so if I need a few more I can have them done lickety split. If I have too many, well they are just cute to look at all piled up anyhoo.

I used this fab little tutorial & template.

& because they need a home to live in when not in use, I turned to my fav little project pouch pattern (the snack bag size is the perfect fit for 12 of these pattern weights with room for more if needs be) with appropriate tailor dummy fabric (cosmo cricket tailor made), all tied up with some  ribbon gifted from my mum that I’d been saving for just the right project :)

These weights are super cute! It took me a while until I got what they are for. I seldom look up words in the dictionary, when I read english written blogs – but when I read yours! (thanks for “lickety split” :-) !)

Those are the cutest weights I have ever seen and I love the little bag you made to put them in. Lovely idea. I may have to make me some just because.

I love this idea Nova! – your pattern weights are the cutest ever, and I love the little pouch you’ve sewn for them to live in. You’ll be cutting with a smile, every time. Cat

Oh Nova they are so beautiful! Thanks so much for the pdf link. I haven’t been doing much sewing just lately as the knitting projects have been taking over….must ravel them soon…but I’m getting the urge to break into the Liberty stash and whip some of these cuties up pronto. Think I may also add some dried lavender in with the rice to mine.

Really cute – I love when ordinary and often ugly things are made special. Zakka forever!
