This product has changed the way I sew forever. I have always hated putting in zips, until I read a tip to use quilters double sided tape. I now stitch the zip opening with a long machine basting stitch in a contrasting colour, fix the zip to the wrong side with the tape, draw in my stitching line with heat vanishing gel pens, (also available from Amazon) and stitch, before removing basting. No pins, no tacking, & perfect results every time. One tip though, the tape is water soluble, so only use a dry iron until stitching is complete!
I have ordered this several times as I find it such good value. The adhesive is a little smelly when the pack is first opened but soon dissipates and does not bother me. I use this to aid stitching zips and trims as it is wash away and doesn't appear to gum up my needles. Much cheaper than a tiny little branded reel of the same stuff
I can't believe that I didn't know about this tape before. I've tried it on a few different fabrics and it's held very well on most of them- not so good on really thick stuff but you can't have everything. I took some to a sewing group I belong to and everyone wants some now. Haven't tried washing it yet but in most cases it would not be visible anyway and it's so thin that you don't know that it's there. It's going to make sewing a lot easier from now on. Arrived promptly with next day delivery.
This is so easy to use. It behaves itself and it is easy to get the backing strip off. It holds well, it sticks well and hasn’t affected my needle. The price was great snd I find it easier to use than the wondertape. However it is visible - it affects how the fabric hangs once inside a hem but it washes away so that is not a problem.
This is an absolute Godsend. I tested it in water and it dissolved so easily so was happy to give it a go when shirtmaking. I’ve used it to temporarily secure both button/buttonhole bands as well as the inner collar stand in place before topstitching from the right side. No more shifty fabric = excellent results, woohoo!
