There's nothing I hate more than pinning a pattern and cutting out the fabric when I'm doing a project. I absolutely love my rotary cutter and mat. It saves me so much precious time! If you have yet to take the rotary leap, I highly recommend you jump in as soon as you can! I promise, you'll never look back! It's also great for those with bad hands!
Half to 1.5 inch strips of fabric or ribbon
Hot glue gun and hot glue (high temp is best)
Washers- you need 2 per weight (I got the biggest ones at Home Depot I could find. They are zinc coated)
Start off with 2 washers. Place a dab of hot glue on
one of them and place the end of your fabric strip on it. Put hot glue around it in a circle and place the other washer on top, sandwiching the end of the fabric strip between the washers.
