About this deal

I love using Wonder-Tape for installing zippers, especially on knits, such as fleece jackets and hoodies.

Topstitch the pocket, which will be so much easier using this basting/Wonder-Tape combo compared to relying on pins (which distorts the fabric).

I’ve personally never had any issues with residue, neither on the fabric nor having the glue getting stuck on the machine needle. I believe this wonder tape will help to keep cut edges of hand-woven fabric from raveling and stretching out, making it easier to piece. Then I remembered that I had bought a package of Wonder Tape after having read that it was nothing short of the seventh wonder of the world.

Those can all be big pain points, even for more experienced sewists, which is why I’m such a fan of using a water-soluble double-sided tape, also referred to as Wonder-Tape, to solve those issues. We are happy to exchange or refund your purchase within 14 days providing the goods are in a fully resaleable condition. After these two steps, the rest is surprisingly easy and my waistband game has improved substantially since I began using the double-sided tape.

As I said, always do a sample to ensure it actually performs as expected and also check reviews and stuff, if trying out a new brand.

before sewing, whereas Wonder tape will wash away, can be stitched through and will not gum your needle. This 6mm-wide, double-sided adhesive tape adheres seams, zip fasteners, curtains and anything that needs to be temporarily adhered or affixed for sewing. I’ve literally struggled for decades to get the inner waistband looking crisply folded and evenly stitched. Now sewing patch pocket on stretchy fabrics is a larger topic, so I do plan to make a separate tutorial, showing more tips and tricks for how to succeed with pockets on knits!The advantage of using over the tape over, say pins, is that it keeps the area flat without any distortion. For extra assurance, I usually do some hand basting too (better safe than sorry) to make sure the waistband really stays in place. Now I just place the tape on the folded seam allowance, press hard with my fingers to make sure the glue sticks to both sides. The tape is a narrow strip that you sandwich between fabric layers to temporarily fixate an area and prevent it from slipping.

Check out our complete guide to Wonder-Tape to learn more about using washable stabilisers when sewing knits.This method keeps the area super flat and also prevents both the zipper and fabric from stretching out and getting wobbly, which is super common when installing zippers on knits. This transparent wonder tape provides a simple and practical alternative to the classic method of affixing with pins. The tape is especially handy if you only have a sewing machine since it really helps to prevent the fabric from stretching out and it also fixes the issue of uneven feeding of the fabric layers.
