Pattern Weights

Well I really have been busy . . . unfortunately crafting hasn't been at the top of my list of activities that have kept me busy recently.  I've been planning and dreaming and scheming up some crafts.  Finally this weekend I buckled down to start a new project.

As I got my rotary cutter and mat out to get started I realized I had finally come to a point in my sewing life where I "needed" some pattern weights.  I had seen these around the internet and knew right where to go for the easy tutorial: Craftiness Is Not Optional.  A quick stop at the home store for some washers and some raiding of my ribbon stash . . . and now I have some new pattern weights.

I glued three washers together instead of two - just to add a little more weight.  Besides what else was I going to do with a package of giant washers.  I ended up making 8 weights.  Love them already!

Can you guess what my next project is going to be?  Hint:  Look at the pattern I'm cutting out.  More to come . . . . soon I hope!
