Instead of purchasing dedicated pattern weights, I found some 3/4″ (inside diameter) metal washers at Home Depot for 40 cents each.
These were perfect – weighty enough, smooth, and small to fit in fairly tight curves/angles.
In this video, I show you how I use pattern weights with your sewing pattern.
If you don’t feel like going out to the store – (of course) Amazon sells similar washers.
And if you want to go fancy…
