Double-sided transparent tape that disappears after washing. Easily stitch through it without gumming your needle. Plus, you can see through it when sewing so you don't have to guess. Makes sewing easy by holding seams and hems of fabrics together. It disappears when the fabric is washed for the first time leaving you with beautifully stitched symmetrical designs. A hassle-free alternative to thread basting and pinning.
Used in many different ways for crafting and home sewing. Position appliqués, pockets and zippers. Hold fabric pieces to paper when foundation piecing. Join pieces of water soluble foundation paper. Match plaids.
Must be stored in a cool place.
I have been using this product for years - Wawak's price is far below what we pay in our local stores, so I order at least a dozen packages at a time. I just introduced my sister to the joy of applying slippery satin binding to equally slippery Minky baby blankets using the tape - cut her usual 2 hour job to 30 minutes - most of it for applying the tape. She was thrilled! Now community sewing season approaches, and I always travel to sew-ins with several packages of the tape in hand. I know when I show my friends how easy it is to apply zippers and trim they will want some of their own.
I use this tape for everything from aligning knit collars to exact hems with a coverstitch. You can use it instead of basting for getting even cargo pants pockets on kids clothes - no pins to bunch or crooked seams. Zippers and fabric feed evenly under foot with no misalignment. It has never gummed my needles. I love it and keep it in pouch on ironing board.
I use this exclusively for putting in invisible zippers. Holds zipper in place with no pinning.
