These Ceramic Pattern Weights are designed by Anja Muecke, the driving force behind the creative label Fernweh Fibres, which is located in Perth, Western Australia.
Each pattern weight has been crafted, painted and glazed by hand, with each piece being slightly different in size and weight. Some packs have 5 smaller pieces and others have 3 larger pieces. Our pictures represent the individual nature of each set and if you need more detailed measurements, please contact the team at Calico and Ivy for more info.
Why use pattern weights?
Did you know they are great tools for Sewists to use and an excellent alternative to using pins? Weights are fast to use and keep your pattern pieces in place while you cut. In addition, because the weights are slightly set back from the edge of the pattern, cutting your piece out is also easier and quicker.
Some Sewists use only pattern weights, some only use pins and others use a combination of both to get their project off the cutting table and onto the machine super quickly. Which one will you use?
