Desperate Times Call for Potatoes....and whatever else might be close by!

Have you ever just found yourself in a "tight" or maybe just too lazy to go get the proper tools for a job?  Well, it's late and I'm tired and I needed some paper weights to hold down paper on a pattern that I was tracing.  So since I was at kitchen counter, I used what was readily available - potatoes, a box of cheese straws and this cute hippo that I bought for a friend this weekend.
I've seen "pattern weights" somewhere along my sewing journey....but who needs to spend that money when other things will do just fine?

  1. Hahaha, I love this! I intend to get around to making some proper pattern weights but I'd rather spend the money on fabric and use whatever is close.
