This project was totally inspired by TheMistressT and her pattern weights found here...
 http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=346578.0
I cut most of my patterns from thick clear plastic from a large roll of plastic so the pieces have a tendency  to curl.  So when I saw TheMistressT's pattern weights I knew this is what I need to keep my patterns in place and to keep them straight. Of course I had to complicate things. I wanted a pyramid shaped weight. On to the pics:

I used an old cookie tin to hold them in (Thanks TMT) and since I don't have any nice paper or stickers I'll just use the nice tin.

Here they all are with the proto type I made.
 
And a fancy picture just cause I like the weights so much.


Again, thank you TMT. Now to start using them.
Hope you like.

Sweet! I love the fabric you used. They look so cute pretending to be food in the tin and display stand.

Thank you. I didn't think of them as looking like food. Thank you.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Wow!  These are great!  You really invested some time and ingenuity into making the project your own to suit your own needs!  YOU'RE the inspiration.

Thank you so much!!! It took me less than an hour from start to finish after I figured out that I wanted a pyramid shape. It's definitely a fun and very useful project. Thanks for the giving me the "light bulb" moment!
