Pattern Weights For Jackie!!!


For the weights I have used 35mm washers which I got from Screwfix plus some thicker ones that Andy got for me so I have superglued one thick one and two thinner ones together. 
If you only have thinner ones I would probably glue five together.

The felt circles are cut at 58mm using a die and a BigShot machine.
I used quilting clips to stop the washers falling out while doing the blanket stitch around the edge....it made life much easier.

The flowers I have used to decorate are also cut out with a die by Sizzix called Fringed Flowers but you could sew a button on, add a fabric flower, sew a charm on or just leave them plain.

Four down....another fifteen to go.
Didn't quite have enough washers to make twenty.

Hope you like them Jackie.

    1. Yes......go raid his shed.
      If they are a bit greasy you could always wash them in white vinegar and a splash of washing up liquid to clean them.
