Use kitchen knives as pattern weights.This is a great trick I learned from my mom. Grab a handful of knives from your drawer and use them to weigh down that paper. They work great!
Pin it to the floor.I mostly cut everything out on the floor because, most of the time, it's the only space big enough. I've found that I can stick pins easily into my carpet and they hold the pattern and fabric in place better than anything else. Seriously I was so excited when I figured this out!
Your turn! What do you do to make cutting out your patterns easier?
My kids start school tomorrow so I'm off to hide their clothes for our annual First Day of School scavenger hunt. Oh and don't forget to check back Thursday to see what I made for the Jersey Love blog tour. There will be a giveaway too.
Over and out!
