    Default fusible tape?

    Is there a double sided fusible tape somewhere? i have an opening in the panel quilt I"m working on and want to seal it shut, then slip stitch along the edge. i have batting tape but its only fusible on one side. I thought i had some other tape but evidently do not.

    How about some glue? I am sure there is a fusible out there, don't know the name.

    I thought about that. don't have any on hand. once tried tiny dots of glue on binding. went through the fabric too much. maybe it was just me!

    There is a light weight fusible tape. You can get in most fabric stores. I think it was originally sold for the non-sewers to tape up their hems instead of sewing. I have used it often when seams open up after washing. I slip a piece in and press. Then I do a fine stitch. Never comes undone.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    You can buy steam a seam tape in 1/4 or 1/2 inch width. Or if you had fusible web you could cut narrow stripa.
