In the same way, I use sticky dots which can be purchased from the stationery shop. They are available in bright colours. I also have seen sheets of sticky arrows, but my dots work well.

Two great tips in one day! This tip, along with the post-it markers for highlighting size line on multi sized patterns makes this day start off on the right foot. Thanks!

Ann, I use masking tape to mark the wrong side of the fabric so I don't inadvertantly sew things inside out on fabrics that are hard to see which side is the face. Often my masking tape tabs fall off or get stuck to other parts of the cut piece. How do you avoid this? (Perhaps I need a new roll of tape?)

Georgene, my masking tape is about 6 months old. Maybe it just has more "stick" to it, because I haven't ever had a problem getting it to stay. Quite the opposite, in fact. I'd say try a new roll or a different manufacturer. -Ann

I tried the little dots, but they don't stick. I'm anxious to try the masking tape now. Sounds great!

I was using Post-its, which just aren't tacky enough and always end up on the floor, or on me. This is much better - great idea Ann!

I like this idea. I wonder if it will work on slinky knits? I dislike cutting those darned notches, especially on some knits.
