one of the best sewing things to have…. I wish I had found this sooner. The hassle of that fragile pattern tissue paper is over. This stuff is great. It sticks to most fabrics just enough to completely negate the use of pinning. I was able to cut out a pants pattern and the corresponding fabric so much more quickly. Such a great time saver for many patterns. Great for those patterns you use over and over. I used a couple of pattern weights and my also new loved Chaco chalk wheel gadget. Put the pattern you’ve cut from the Swedish paper on your fabric set the weights if needed, trace outline of pattern and cut. I don’t like cutting around the patterns at all…I find that tracing off is so much more accurate and you can usually see the chalk line for sewing allowances, depending on the chalk used of course.I’ve tried outlining my original patterns with crayons and then putting those on the swedish paper and ironing the pattern and melting the crayon onto the swedish paper and that works pretty…
Hate to Sew Without It I love this stuff! It is what I reach for first when starting a project. It’s sewable and washable! I trace my pattern pieces, make the alterations and then sew the muslin using this tracing paper. It works great for any project using woven fabric. I highly recommend.
