Nuts & bolts as pattern weights

Nuts & bolts as pattern weights

I often browse the web looking to learn more and more about sewing , fabrics, upholstery, how-to’s and such. When I find valuable information I like to share it with others like you. Before I send you to the blog I want to share my take on a few items discussed in the article.

First, one of the items discussed is pattern weights. I had never seen a pattern weight so; I Googled  it.  Pattern weights look like fabric covered washers. So my tip is use metal bolt washers & nuts that are 1 inch or larger. Another item that you may have at home (if you’re a crafter anyway) is glass dots, these could work as well. Other items could work too as long as they are not very tall and are somewhat heavy.

Second, remember the importance of using the correct sewing machine needle, thread, and tension.

My last personal tip is always check your thread before you start to sew. It is so frustrating when I sew an entire seam only to find that the thread was not in the correct place (in relation to the presser foot of the machine) so no sewing actually took place.

OK, now for the link to the other tips I found:
