Make your own fabric weights with this 10 minutes tutorial! These sewing weights are perfect for skipping pins when tracing your patterns but are also cute enough to use as home decor!
Fabric weights are a great alternative to pins for holding pattern pieces onto fabric when you’re tracing them off or cutting them out, especially on slippery fabric. These sewing pattern weights are cute little triangle sachets that you can use as fabric weights for sewing or as air fresheners placed around the house. Simply add a few drops of your favorite oils!

I use these fabric weights for both purposes and also because they’re so darn cute! I like to have them laying around the house for no practical reason, really. They have a little ribbon loop so you can hook it onto something or grab it easy. You can use them in your drawers and maybe your fabric shelf too!
These pattern weights are also a great project for beginners where they get the chance to practice sewing a triangle (which might sound scary but it’s so crazy easy!). And it’s a great scrap buster! The size on these little sachets is quite small but you can easily adjust it to fit your needs and style.
