Paper Tape

This tape is a wonderful crafting and sewing aid. It doesn’t leave any residue. It is easy to see through. It is slightly flexible. It is easy to write on too. A win, win, win, win, situation. I use it for marking pattern pieces for my students. I can tell a front piece from the back piece, but for new seamstresses once the pattern is removed that can be difficult. I use it on the machine to mark tricky seam allowances. Since it leaves no residue it can be used for top stitching. It will even hold together fabrics that can’t be pinned or basted prior to sewing, like leather and vinyl. I love to use it to repair torn patterns too. I like it better than masking or painter’s tape. It is my ‘go to’ temporary holding tape.
