I don't know why these pictures are so big, I resized them to the smallest size in Windows Gallery. I think I need to reinstall HP Photo which I'm used to dealing with.
Instead of sewing pattern weights I decided to make some fairly inexpensive, washable pattern weights out of heavy nuts.
I tried resting them in an egg carton which didn't work well, when they dried they had loose spots where it touched. So I'm going to dip them again and hang them over a box.
A can of the Plasti-Dip will double coat 10 large nuts. These are about 1.5" wide x1" deep and weigh about 4 oz.
Husband mentioned I could use rubberized spray paint, so I think I'll touch them up with that.
