Basting Tape!

There are some projects that can use basting tape, making things much easier than using pins or using regular basting seams. Pins get in the way, ruin needles if you accidentally sew over them, and poke your fingers! Regular basting seams stay the position unless you take them out and start over. But basting tape has a bit more flexibility.
You can move the two items you are sewing together easier AND no pins to sew over.

There are lots of brands -- they all seem fine!

I used basting tape on my first epattern called 'Hide Your Stuff.....in your closet!' The basting tape helps hold the zipper in the zipper window until and as you sew it in place.
