Sustainable Sewing Resources

Autumn spontinaety

In my quest to sew sustainably, I’ve accumulated a list of resources that can help us all use a little less, and use what’s easier for the Earth to handle (links below).  As part #MIYMarch19, I posed the usual questions, this time about Swedish pattern tracing paper.  What it’s made of? Does it biodegrade?  Can I throw it in my unusable scrap pile without feeling perpetually guilty?  Why is it termed “Swedish?”  Turns out Patterntrace is a compostable Swedish tracing paper made of Apaca fibres offered by Creative Industry.  Who would have thought?  But, um, awesome!  Why it’s called “Swedish?”  I’m still researching!
