Sewing Helpers

For those of you who sew: I've found that tuna cans and small cat food cans work great as "weights" to hold patterns down when cutting them out. This way, no pins are needed! And when you're done, back in the cupboard they go!

I love "Sewing with Nancy" and watch it often. I've been sewing for many years, but she comes up with new ideas that are really worth trying.
