Designed to firmly weigh fabric in place for cutting, each weight is palm sized with small pins which pass cleanly through the fabric and into the cutting board beneath. In this way fabric can be held and straightened, and positioned more accurately with a ruler. Fabric weights take the pain out of placing, holding and cutting fine or slippery fabrics. Also ideal for materials that can not be penetrated with a pin such as suede, leather, etc. Being small and square shaped, they are easily stored away in the corner of a sewing basket or drawer.
