fascination with washi tape...

I went a little wild at Target last weekend.
I found four rolls of 'paper' tape.
aka Washi tape
I have collected a few rolls of tape from Japan and etsy listings.....
but to find these at Target was awesome.
They are cute with dots and stripes,
and no, I don't really have a plan for them.
It seems that I just didn't stop buying because I found these tapes at JoAnn's.
In the same display there were these little hanger clips.
I keep thinking they would be sooo cute to put petite Blythe clothes
or even regular Blythe clothes on them...

So do you have any washi tape?
Where do you buy it?

So, what is Washi tape usually used for? I have never heard of it.

Oh cool! I'd really like some with strawberries or something like that. I use black or houndstooth duct tape, but if I see that washi tape at target I'll be getting some. Thanks for the tip!

I'm also very curious to see what it's used for!

I've heard of it but don't know how to use it or what to do with it. Clue me in.

Hi, I bought my daughter the Michael's version of the American doll and she loves it so much!!! I've never done much garment sewing, but I've already made it two outfits, which is so much fun!!! I have made two shirts and two skirts and see a whole wardrobe in this doll's future. Although I haven't made many clothes, I think my versions are much sturdier than the dress she came in and I guess I'll have to learn how to use my serger I bought a couple years ago secondhand. My Janome doesn't seem to sew knits well, although I might have the wrong plate on. I am really not sure. But I am so glad we got the doll. Thanks for the inspiration!

Oh my mother was wondering why I have this tape. I use it for cute things on envelopes or I use it for putting markings on my rules. I love that it's not too sticky.

I'll be sure to go to Target to get these! I only have bought them randomly on etsy from a few buyers. . nothing special or grand.
