Seamstick 3/8" Basting Tape for Canvas (50 yds.)
This is a double-sided acrylic adhesive that bonds well with coarse canvas fabrics like Sunbrella®, Top Notch® or Top Gun®. Basting prior to sewing prevents feeding problems and provides more accurate, even hems and water-resistant seams. Basting tapes are left permanently in place and are invisible. If any needle gumming occurs while sewing, intermittently clean the needle with an alcohol swab or an adhesive remover. The "Basting Tape Selection Tips" PDF document below details all the materials this basting tape can be used on.
3/8-inch width is ideal for 1/2-inch hems, the standard hem width, to minimize any exposed tape after hemming.
