Cutting out sewing patterns is my least favorite part of sewing. That doesn’t bode well for me since I usually cut out and sew 10-15 of each pattern while I’m developing them. I have a few methods for cutting out patterns, depending on how large the pieces are, what type of fabric or what the pattern is made from (tissue paper, printer paper, etc.). This pattern cutting tip is good for most fabrics, sizes and fabrics. Use pattern weights. Note that those “weights” I used in the photo are pretty inadequate.

I didn’t start doing this until very recently but I know many of you have probably been doing it for years. What do you think? Good method? Best tip: go SLOW!
