If you enjoy dress making but don't like to poke pins in your paper patterns, then these pretty pattern weights will hold the pattern still while you cut. 

Step 1:

To make the pattern weights you will need:

fabric scraps
metal washers ( approx 3/4 in or 20 mm in diameter)
batting scraps
Clover Yo-Yo Maker (Large) 
These are so cute and simple, with no sharp edges to tear the pattern, they won't leave any kind of mark, and so quick to make l can just whip up more whenever the cat steals them. Thanks for thinking to post such clear instructions for something l'm sure you take for granted, but will be such a help to sister sewers!
Excellent and appropriate links back to your blog.
I don't like using pins eithor. this is a nice solution. thanks for sharing.
Thanks Sunshine.<br>
Great! I usually just use the large washers on their own, but this seems like a much better way to go about it.
Thanks Scoochmaroo!
