Giveaway time – Swedish Tracing Paper and Makers Workbook

I am really excited to have teamed up with  to offer you this fabulous giveaway. They have kindly donated a roll of the amazing Swedish Tracing paper AND a Makers Workbook that one of you lucky sewists can win. I have also added in 2m of this fabulous Palette peached cotton poplin into the prize pot, lucky you!

If you haven’t heard about just how fabulous Swedish tracing paper is don’t just take my word for it, why not do a quick google search and you will find lots of rave reviews about this stuff. Softer than standard tracing paper, and harder to rip so it lasts longer. You can see through it easily enough to trace all details and marks without smudging! It can also be used to make a toile for your clothes before sewing. Sounds too good to be true huh? The makers workbook features pages of useful squared paper, forms for doodling and black charts to plan your next makes and organise your stash.

To enter this giveaway simply visit and browse our fabric and patterns and let me know in the comments below which fabric/ pattern comb you would add first to your Maker workbook.

Closing date is Thursday 21st April.

Good luck and Happy sewing xxx

    Ooh what a fabulous give away. I would definitely add the Closet Case Ginger Jeans to my makers workbook. In the gorgeous 2 Tone Stretch Denim – Blue & Grey! I have been dying to make jeans, but too nervous to take the leap, I think it's time!

    Hello Godmother!
    That workbook looks amazing – at the moment I use a cheapo notebook from Tesco and would love to upgrade! I've just had a great time perusing the website and think the Portia Stretch Sateen would be perfect for a Grainline Morris blazer.
    Best wishes xx

    The workbook is great for keeping all your ideas & notes together. The first thing I'd add is Colette Clover Pants in Jeanette Stretch Denim as I haven't tackled trousers yet so think these look a great shape to start with

  4. Unknown says:

    My first entry would be The avid seamstress day dress pattern and the fabric would be cotton and linen mix in loganberry. I think this would be a very useful day or occasion dress.

  5. Claire Cooper says:

    I've seen loads of people rave about Swedish tracing paper, but have never used it. I'd love my next make to be either slim jeans like the named Jamie Jeans or the Morris blazer, either in the tullippe cotton sateen. Or I could just make another Kielo wrap dress

  6. Ann Marshall says:

    I would love to try the Swedish tracing paper. The pattern I would choose would be Sew over it's Ultimate shift dress and I would like to make it up in the Tramonto viscose jersey in browns. Thank you for the giveaway.

  7. Unknown says:

    I've always been a fan of Named. I would probably try and tackle the Ailalli Jumpsuit, but with a fully flared trouser leg! Fabric wise, I always love the feel of Viscose. Might try the Metallic Denim Jersey in order to add some sparkle to my day to day!

  8. Carolle says:

    I'd love the laser cut yellow scuba, with something liked the named Imari tee. The sun may not be out but this would definitely brighten a dull day!

  9. Emma Welsh says:

    I'd use black or slate ponte to make a take on the by hand London Sophia dress especially for nursing. Sans collar and sleeves for spring. A workhorse garment.

    I am really excited about this giveaway as it is such a brilliant prize. I would choose the very lovely and fresh looking Tulippe Stretch Cotton Sateen – White which I really love, The extra stetch means it would have comfortable wearability and would look fab as the Sewaholic Oakridge Blouse which is so versatile and classic. Do hope I'm lucky!!!!!!

  11. Carol Milton says:

    I would really like to try a new look, and I think that look could be the Named Lexi A-line Dress in the Grange Cotton and Wool – it would be so exciting to embark on a total makeover, with your help! Thanks.

    Oh my – what a giveaway!

    I've already got my sights on your lush navy crepe to make a sew over it shift dress, but that poplin would make an excellent day dress.

    The workbook looks ace too. I'm aiming get to sew the perfect capsule wardrobe, so it would really help with the planning!

  13. Jo Rattrie says:

    I think I'd use the Charmaine Crepe – Charcoal to make an Inari dress by named patterns. I think the pattern would look great in a dress without too many lines to break it up

  14. Susan Beckley says:

    Such an amazing choice of fabrics and patterns 🙂 but in the end the thought of warm summer days in Cornwall on the beach (it will be warm and sunny or else!!!) has swung me towards the Sew Liberated Aida Top in the fabulous Betty Cotton Lawn in white as my first choice to add to my Makers Workbook. Love this fabric 🙂

  15. Jane says:

    I'd like to make something with the silver metallic linen. Possibly a pair of sew over it ultimate trousers or may be the ultimate pencil skirt.

  16. Cloche hats says:

    I would add the Closet Case Carolyn pyjamas pattern and make them up in the luxurious Fiori Rosa silk in pink and cream. I've always hankered after making a pair of dead gorgeous silk PJ's.

  17. Ahrabella Lewis says:

    Oh what a fabulous giveaway!My choice would be The Avid The Avid Seamstress The Day Dress with the Petra Linen and Cotton Mix – Grey as the fabric would compliment the clean lines of this versatile dress

    I love the Betty Cotton Lawn fabric, and would look amazing as a summer dress. I think I'd keep it simple with Tilly & The Buttons Bettine Dress.

    I have wanted to try swedish tracing paper for a while now! I would chose Megan Nielsen Brumby Skirt (Beginner) with Coco Boucle Suiting – Aqua, I think it would look Gorg!
