I've been a big fan of LEONIS Water Erasable Markers for several years now. Unlike many washable markers on the market, LEONIS pens have a shorter cartridge so as not to dry out in the packaging. I've been buying them in 10 packs, so I'm always guaranteed to have reliable washable markers on hand. I was thrilled when LEONIS contacted me to review more of their sewing products!
LEONIS provided me with two products to review- A 30 spool polyester thread kit and iron-on hem tape!
The first product LEONIS sent me was Iron-on Hem Tape. It comes in a variety of colors. I selected to test the white version because it will not show through on light-colored fabrics.
This hem tape has a glue side and a plain side. The adhesive side is placed face down and ironed onto the fabric. You can visually identify this side by looking for the white fabric loops, which are easier to spot on darker versions of this hem tape.
The tape comes with easy-to-understand instructions in both English and Japanese. It suggests soaking the tape in water before ironing it. I opted to wet it with a spray bottle, which worked just as well.
Here's how I applied the hem tape to my project:
Place the adhesive side down on your fabric
Wet the tape with a spray bottle filled with water
Place a press cloth over the tape
Iron each section for 10 seconds
