A Weighty Issue…

It has been my experience that pinned patterns tend to slide about from time to time, and don’t always have the cleanest cutting results. Full disclosure, I am a beginner on this sewing journey and will get better at the pinning. BUT I have found pattern weights to be a much more successful tool to use.

I found myself a set of sentimental* weights in my mama’s sewing room. My sneaking-them-into-my-sewing-room activities didn’t go unnoticed and the mother has demanded they be returned, post haste. Since they were made by her father for her mother, I’ll (reluctantly) comply and give ‘em back. But only because I can now replace them with these heavy bits of cool!

*(They’re sentimental because the sewing bug was passed down from mother (my gran) to daughter (my mum), and again from mother (my mum) to daughter (me), along with a whole range of tools, notions, machines, and paraphernalia. I wasn’t able to sneak the grandpa-made cutting table out so I chose the weights.)

This pattern may be simple in design, construction, and use but it is supremely practical and the resultant weights are an essential in any sewistas tool box. If for nothing else than to weigh down the lid of the box where you keep your fabric scissors!

About Bronwyn Westmore

I am a massive word nerd and English is my first love; reading books and collecting dictionaries rank quite high on my To Do List (after sewing aaaaalllll the things, obviously). My favourite dinosaur is a Thesaurus, I'm a firm believer in the Oxford comma, and I think it's nice that Voldemort always waited until the end of the school year to launch an attack on Harry. Despite all his flaws, Voldemort obviously cared about education. I'm a work-from-home dog mom (Harry Potter and Dark Vega) and I basically live on social media, write a bunch of stuff, and drink copious amounts of tea. Sewing and social media in one beautiful package are my happy place!
