Fabric tape is made from cotton fabric with an adhesive backing and sold on a roll. Simply cut, peel and stick – strips of fabric tape can be used in so many craft projects. You can use fabric tape for gift wrapping, card making, home decorating, and other craft projects. You can use it in place of regular sticky tape or washi tape. It can be used to decorate glass, wood, or paper. It has a lovely texture and adds a sweet finishing touch to your next project. I love these sweet Tilda fabric tapes – they coordinate with the new Tilda fabric collections – Memory Lane Fabrics and Cabbage Roses Fabrics.
Once you start using fabric tape you will discover so many applications for it! Here are some of my favourite uses for Fabric Tape.
1. Decorate Vases and Glass Jars – Add a couple of contrasting strips of fabric tape to a glass jar to add a focal point.
2. Sealing Bags and Gifts – I love to give small gifts from my kitchen. Packaging home baked cookies in a clear cellophane bag with a strip of fabric tape is a sweet finishing touch.
3. Cupcake Flags – Dress up your cupcakes at your next high tea. Simple fold a strip of fabric tape around a toothpick, and cut a V from the end to create a little flag.
4. Decorated Pegs (Clothespins) – Add a strip of tape to a wooden peg (clothespin). These pegs are so handy for attaching cards to gifts, displaying small projects/fabric swatches around your sewing studio.
