Craft Essential: Masking Tape
Masking tape is just one of those multi-purpose gems that I have to have in my craft inventory. It's great for all sorts of stuff,I personally use it a great deal when embroidering or cross-stitching. I tape the edges of my fabric to stop fraying and because it doesn't have a mega-strong adhesive quality, it comes off easily. I also find it useful for keeping track of embroidery cotton. When you divide up your threads, the extra ones can be taped to a sewing box lid or even a piece of paper and you can write the colour code on the tape itself.
If you have other uses for masking tape - feel free to share.
