Pattern weights! They are a nice useful gift. I made mine out of linen, two types of cotton, satin dupion and plush velvet. I used this tutorial and as suggested did them as a batch sew, which sped things up a lot!
I also made a little basket for them all to live in, so they hopefully won't clutter Ruth's house!
I enjoyed stitching them, but they were quite fiddly so I don't think I'll be making anymore for a while!
