Pattern Weights

Project Description

What are you most proud of? It was fast, easy and cheap. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't work on this project with cats around! Seriously, as soon as they saw ribbon, they were all up in my face and wanting to play with me. Oh, who am I kidding, they wanted the ribbon. My kitties wanted to be part of this project so badly that they wouldn't even let me take pictures without their help! Above is Pontificus the First (or Ponti for short) modelling with the cool, hip, and functional pattern weights.

What you will need

  • I went to Canadian Tire and bought the largest steel washers I could find. I then wrapped and glued them in polyester ribbon.

Q&A with LaraGa

What a fabulous idea!!!! I will have to try this. I have a set of pattern weights (very expensive) but sometimes on larger pieces it would be nice to have a few extra weights for the outer areas. Now I know how to get them without paying the high price for the commercial ones. Thanks for the idea!!! And Ponti is adorable.
LaraGa answered:
Thank you! I agree, Ponti is quite the cutie :)
