Does anyone else really procrastinate when it comes to basting quilts? I get over the pain of basting my quilts by trying out lots of different techniques.
The hype is that the MicroStitch tagging gun or basting gun will let you say goodbye to safety pins, glue, metal staples, and large tacks.
Looking at the gun from the top, you’ll see a sort of T-shaped slot. This is where you’ll place the plastic tacks.
Insert the tags
Put the gun in slightly sideways so you can feel that you’ve gone through all the way.
Just like you normally would, lay out your three layers on a flat surface. Make sure to get your layers as smooth as you can.
Lay out your three layers
With just a quick pull using tweezers and then a snip with your thread snippers, you can snip off the tacks with no problem.
