Look at this cool sh*t!
I go the numerous antique flea markets / swapmeets a couple times a month. Sometimes I find really cheap vintage patterns, awesome notions, and on rare occasions I get fabric. Then there are those times you find really cool things. Like these brass duck pattern weights!
Well, the original purpose was place holders on a dinner table, but they are super heavy and a great size to fit in the corners of pattern pieces. I use these in combination with metal washers I bought at the hardware store.
The ducks are my new favorite...and if I ever have a big Duck Dynasty themed dinner party, I have the perfect addition to the table.
(The fabric was made into a blouse for myself. To be blogged about later when I get around to taking photos.)
