I recently came around to the idea of using pattern weights to keep the delicate pattern paper in place while I trace it instead of tearing it to shreds with stickpins. When I was making bloomers for KDVS, I had a stroke of genius and discovered the perfect household item that would double as a pattern weight.
Unfortunately, I forgot what that was and now I'm using kitchen jars; though handy, they leave much to be desired.
Did I tell any of you about the pattern weight revelation in April? Please remind me!
