S101 Pattern Tracing Fabric
30 inches (76cm) wide x 10 yards (9.15m) long
$15.00/roll.

This Swedish material is perfect for tracing off a single size from a multi-size pattern, leaving the original pattern pieces intact. It's translucent so you can see right through it and has a smooth finish for easy marking with pen, pencil, or other marking tool. Mark grainlines, notches, dots, and other important matchpoints, and quickly baste together a test garment to try on. You can then evaluate the fit and appearance, and confidently make any alterations to the test garment before cutting into your fashion fabric.

Design your own original patterns, too! Our tracing material is much stronger than paper, yet drapably soft like fabric, so you can use it to experiment, adjust, alter, and test your own creative ideas. Stitch the test pieces together, try on the results, and make changes until you're satisfied. You will then have your own durable master pattern, ready to cut out of any fabric.

S102 Removable Tape
1/2 inch (12mm) by 10 yards (9.15m)
$2.50

This removable tape is used in hospital operating rooms because it is gentle on the material it's taped to. So whether you are doing surgery on a torn sewing pattern or a skinned knee, this comes in very handy. We recommend using a few pieces to hold the S101 Pattern Tracing Fabric in place while tracing off pattern pieces. Comes packaged in a dispenser with serrated edge.

Custom Bias Tape Makers
These wonderful tools infinitely speed up the process of making your own bias seam binding in 1/4", 1/2", and 3/4" widths. Many Folkwear patterns call for bias binding to finish or embellish seams, so we love these little marvels. Simply pre-cut bias strips of any fabric, use the built-in handle to pull them through the tool, and press the finished binding as it comes out the other end.
