How do I hold the pattern in place?

Secure the Pattern

Layout all pattern pieces before you cut. Secure placement using pins or weights. Pins will anchor the pattern in place more securely for precise cutting. Weights are quicker but the pattern has a tendency to move. Only use magnets where precision is not as important.
