Diagonal Seam Tape is placed on the sewing machine to make sewing diagonal seams easy with no marking lines on the fabric first! It is placed in front of the feed dogs of the sewing machine, with the red stitching line in line with the needle. The black lines represent a perfect 1/4" seam allowance, which helps guide fabric, make HST's without marking lines, and is a great help for beginners learning to sew and keeping long strips of fabric straight. Diagonal Seam Tape is washi tape, so it's strong, thin, and removes cleanly. Remove it after each project to prevent any residue on the machine. Each roll is 10 yards.

What is Diagonal Seam Tape?

Diagonal Seam Tape is simply washi tape that is placed on the front plate of your sewing machine to act as a guide while you are sewing diagonal seams.

The tape is strong, thin, sticks well to almost any surface, and comes off easily. Each roll has 10 yards of tape so it should last a really long time.

The red line in the center is aligned with the needle of your machine, and the black lines on either side are 1/4″ to each side from the center of the lines, to represent a 1/4″ seam allowance. The black lines won’t replace a piecing foot with a perfect 1/4″, but act as an extra guide.

The tape removes cleanly, but I recommend removing or replacing the tape often or after each project to avoid any residue on your machine. This tape is not meant to be a permanent fixture on the machine, and long term use without replacement may result in some residue to clean off.
