Dritz Quilting Washaway Wonder Tape is a double-sided transparent tape which can be stitched. Wonder Tape will not gum up on needle and completely disappears in first washing. An alternative to pinning or thread basting. Tape is water soluble so it should be stored in a cool, dry place when not in use. 1/4 Inch by 25 Yards

I mark straight lines on the fabric with a Frixion marker or pen, lay the tape sticky side down next to the line and then burnish the paper back of the tape rather hard with a smooth tool, like my scissors handle or a stainless burnisher.
It can be tricky to get the paper peeled off of the sticky part - it's the only bad thing about it. I usually just lift one end and use a pin and my fingernails to pry the sticky stuff away from the tape. Once you get it started, it's easy to pull the tape to the side and away from the starting point. Don't pull up, or the sticky part can come unstuck from your fabric.
Then I lay the trim onto the exposed sticky stuff, rearrange it until it's straight and then I can press it with a steam iron and let it cool. It holds well enough to get both sides of the trim sewn down.
It doesn't gum up my needle, either. Really wonderful tool for applying bias tape or any kind of lace or trim to long stretches of fabric.
The double-sided tape keeps the fabric from shifting, allowing me to concentrate on making even stitches. It is so thin, it doesn't seem to interfere with the needle and thread. It just does its job and holds the fabric pieces in place. It is especially helpful when you have several pieces of fabric all coming together, such as the corners of a pack, plus a pocket, plus webbing loops all overlapping together in a single seam.
The only downside here is that the tape doesn't always stick as well as I would like, but I won't deduct a star because I think it's about right (If it were stickier, it would hold the fabric more securely, perhaps, but it would likely also snag the needle or thread and create problems). When sewing fabric like nylon Cordura, the tape also sticks noticeably better to the "wrong" (PU coated) side than to the brighter/shinier "right" side of the fabric.
If you're a novice sewer, or you are sewing complex items made from multiple layers of fabric (such as a pack), I really recommend this tape. It lives up to its "Wonder Tape" name.
