Pattern weights are unsung heroes in the sewing world, providing a hassle-free​ and time-saving alternative to traditional pins. The benefits are numerous – they eliminate the need for constant pinning, preventing fabric distortion and reducing the risk of pricked fingers.​ 

We are especially fond of the free JUSTweight sewing pattern by Irish-based pattern designer Sarah Jolley, also known as In Complete Stitches. These weights are as cute as they are practical and make for a great scrap-busting project.

Chances are, you won't stop at 'just weights' when exploring Sarah's range of versatile sewing patterns. See what we did there?!

Tailors ham's are used to press and shape curved areas of garments, such as darts, sleeves, and princess seams. The rounded form allows for better pressing of these curved sections, helping to achieve a professional and polished finish.
Sewing your own tailors pressing ham can be a game-changer for anyone passionate about garment construction or DIY sewing projects.
