After a few attempts at various gift ideas I've had brewing in my head, I decided these penny washer pattern weights were the winner. They were such good fun to make and I'm really excited to share this project with you. Apart from being must-have items on your cutting table, these pattern weights would make an excellent gift for your sewing buddies! I mean, just look at this lovely stack of them... and you don't even have to be a sewist yourself to make them - just cut and stick!
It's a simple drawstring bag, but I'm going to show you in detail the way I do it. I like to enclose each raw edge of a seam allowance for durability. No overlocker/serger needed, just a straight stitch on the sewing machine and an iron for pressing.
