I thought I would try using pattern weights versus pins and decided to make them myself. I bought larger washers and used two to three together. Fabric, ribbon and yarn were used but as you can see I only made one with yarn. Do you want to know why? It took way too much time to make that one weight basically, I made all the others in the time I did the one!! All you do is wrap the ribbon or fabric around the washers and then use the glue gun to finish.
After using these a few times, I love them and so much quicker than pinning!
