Fabric Weights are an alternative to using pins when cutting fabrics. There are times when you should consider using weights instead of pins.

  • Chiffon: due to the delicate weight of this material it often shifts and moves when cutting.
  • Stretch fabrics: when you pin stretch fabrics you accidentally stretch the fabric.
  • Leather or Suede: pinning these fabrics will cause pin marks to be left in the fabric.

Pattern weights are also a great option when you want to speed up cutting. It’s a lot easier to plop down some weights and trace around a pattern than it is to pin each corner of a pattern piece. What are some of your tips and tricks for cutting out fabric and patterns?
