Do you like my pattern weights? I was about to donate these old irons when I needed something to hold down my pattern paper, the heavy books were across the room, and the irons were close at hand. My only worry is that I'll drop one on my toes as I am most often barefoot.
I know it looks as if my grain line is at an angle, but when I measure from the center front/back, which is straight, all the grain lines are where they would be if this was one whole pattern piece cut on the straight grain. I measured these out before I made the lines to cut the whole pattern into sections so that there was less chance of error.
