    1. I also learned to sew from my mom–and she would hold the pattern down with one hand and cut with the other. So that is a habit I carry with my even today. Actually, I’ve learned through the years, the best technique is the one that works for you! When I’m cutting out smaller pieces, I might just put a finger or two on the pattern, and something I learned at a workshop last year was to use a long, acrylic ruler to hold down the edge of a garment pattern piece if the edge is very long.
      Presenters on TV will often place their hands so that the pattern is still visible to the viewer. This may not be the process they use in their studios, but show off the materials they are using.
      I hope this helps! And thanks to all moms who taught us to sew! – Rose
