    I used mine in quilts and as animal applique for babies (patterns came from Fat Cat Patterns, coloring books).

    Would love to get my hands on some ... I use the old sad irons for weights!
    My favorite weights are "3rd Hands". You just sew some about 4" squares or rounds of about 4" - right sides together - sew them twice. Leave a little hole on one side about an inch across.
    Turn - poke out the corners.
    and FILL THEM WITH PENNIES! Takes a few dollars worth,
    and they are heavy enough
