Weights instead of pins!

I have some Beading projects at the experimental stage and it will take some more time to post about....
So, in the meantime.......for something completely different....
It´s been a long time that I posted one of my sewing projects.
That one is going to be a hooded coat, and I upgraded my sewing equipment a bit with some weights for the cut. I did not see this before and find it spectacular : Weights instead of pins!

I bought them from a sewing equipment store, but maybe some really big iron washers from the hardware store will do the same!


  1. the washers. can't wait to see your new beading projects!

  2. a lot less work if you don't have to put in the needles. Curious about the new beading project of course and this 'when it is finished' piece too !

  3. hello,
    I would like to give you the "Stylish Blogger Award" for your awesomely stylish blog! :)

    How this award works is that it's passed on from blogger to blogger, so I received the award from someone and I pass on the award to others. Part of this award is to write 7 things about yourself (on your blog post) and pass this award to 15 other recently discovered blogs you think deserves this award too.

    You can see my post and the link for the award here!
    happy new year

  4. Saves so much time not having to pin and makes it easier to cut out. I too, can't wait to see the finished coat - love the tartan - and your new beadwork. I am also very impressed that you have started creating - work begins tomorrow over here.

  5. Love your jewelry! They're gorgeous! :) My mom always uses weights instead of pins too.

  6. Thank you for sharing, I didn't know that weights could be used instead of pins, I'll have to try that :)
