What is Washi Tape & What do you do with it. Machine Embroidery blog  sweet-pea-machine-embroidery-designs

Washi tape is a cheap, easy-to-find, and super useful tape that has taken the craft and embroidery world by storm! But what is this washi tape, anyway?

Washi tape can be found anywhere from your local craft stores and big name superstores to convenience stores and boutiques — and almost everywhere in between. It comes in a whole array of colours and patterns, and can be used in a variety of ways to make your diy life easier.

It is a masking-like tape that is durable and flexible and is available in a variety of widths, textures, patterns and colours. It tears easily and can be safely applied to a variety of surfaces; it doesn’t leave a sticky residue behind, making it especially ideal for home décor, organising and craft projects alike.

Oh the fun you'll have...

Get Decorating - Because washi tape is durable and doesn’t leave residue behind, it is the perfect little crafty friend for the temporary artist in all of us. It can be used for walls, appliances and even furniture. Create custom desk top designs, accent your computer screen, or design custom wall art in your craft room all with the use of this fun ornamented tape!

Get Organising - Because washi tape is colourful, fun, and easy to write on, it can also be useful for organisation. You can almost use this everywhere. Use it to label boxes, highlight important calendar dates or diary entries, and personalise your office supplies and embroidery machine!

Get Embroidering - Because washi tape is sticky but easily removed, it can be great when holding fabrics like vinyl and laminate together without pins, marking frequently used measurements on rulers and keeping fabrics flat by taping corners for layering.

How we do, what we do, with washi tape

Washi tape has been a staple item in Sweet Pea Head Quarters for years. Being able to hold together our fabrics, zippers and batting with our tape allows us the freedom to quickly and easily test our designs, without the constant pinning and the struggle to keep our fabrics in place.

This means we can test those designs quickly and get them online for each and every one of you.
