Am I the only one that does this?
Sometimes if I have just a few small pattern pieces to cut out, I will put my fabric down on my ironing board with my pattern pieces on top. Then I stick my pins straight through the pattern pieces, my fabric and the ironing board. Then I cut it out...being extra careful not to cut my ironing board cover, of course!!! I know this isn't the smartest thing to do...but sometimes I really like quick and easy!
