If you have trouble pinning zippers into position when making bags and purses, or even clothing, Wonder Tape may be the solution for you. Wonder Tape is a double-sided, repositionable tape that can be used in place of pins. It can be used for all sorts of sewing applications, but it works particularly well for positioning zippers easily. The tape is 1/4″ wide and you can sew right over it without it gumming up your needle. It’s water soluble so you can wash it out, or just leave it in if you’re not planning on washing your project.
You can find Wonder Tape at your local sewing store, or here online at Amazon.com.
