Do any of you know of the type of tape, like Scotch tape, that doesn't melt when you have repaired a pattern, used the tape to fix it, then ironed to straighten out the pattern? I know there is one, but I can't remember the certain style that doesn't melt, and am getting tired of mine doing that on a pattern piece I have just altered!
Thank You!

Masking tape. That's what I use on my pattern pieces!

Pati Palmer (Palmer-Pletsh) had us buy Magic Tape--that doesn't melt.

Nancy sells a tape, which is in fact Micropore medical tape (it actually has Micropore written on it.)

This tape is great for sticking patterns together and is easily ironable. it does however, clog up pins, so try not to pin through it.

I also use the 3M Micropore medical tape, that I get from Nancy's Notions. It is a paper surgical/medical tape. I agree, it works very well for sticking patterns together, or sticking tracing paper together. The iron does not melt it.

You can also purchase it from various online medical supply vendors, but they usually sell it by the box (24 rolls), which is more economical, but 24 rolls are too many for me. I only need one or two rolls at a time, so I'll add a roll to a NN order when I'm running low.

For example, Micropore tape @ Amazon.

You may find it sold by the roll in the "bandage" section of your local chain drugstore.

The Magic tape does melt, not not too bad, but P&P says to tape on the front and iron on the back. (but I always forget)

I use pink hair-setting tape for pattern alterations, because it stays soft and foldable. I can't remember with certainty whether I've ironed it or not, though. Since I always have a silicone "slipper" on my iron, I've probably ironed over it without a problem.

I tape on the front, iron on the back. I think that was a tip in FFRP, to make it a habit so you don't melt tape. I use some kind of scotch tape. i had no idea there were un-meltable tapes!

I never thought to use a different kind of tape. Boy do I feel silly! I've just been carefully avoiding the taped areas and making it work then tracing off a new uncut piece once it's final.
I love the heat n bond idea! I've been feeling like it will take me a lifetime to get through my 2 rolls of stitch witch, but I think I'll start using it for this!
