We have decided to start selling a range of pretty washi tapes as washi comes in so useful in so many ways when you are sewing. We’ve round up our favourite uses for it below, if you have any others please do comment and let us know.
To hold pattern pieces onto fabric when cutting out
If you have issues with you pattern pieces shifting whilst you are cutting out, or don’t have pins or pattern weights to hand simple use washi tape to hold them into place whilst you cut out.
To label fabric pieces
Help keep track of the front and back, left sleeve and right sleeve etc by writing the name of the piece onto washi tape and sticking it onto your fabric. Because washi tape doesn’t leave behind any residue and isn’t as sticky as Sellotape it’s easy to apply and to remove.
To use as a seam guide
You can stick a strip of washi tape to your needle plate along the seam allowance line you need for your project. It’s much more visible, and means you don’t have to keep checking you are lining your fabric up with the correct line.
