Touchtape 1.5 inch
Many diaper makers like to use Touchtape as their diaper closure. Touchtape closures are quick to put on and take off, easy for many caregivers to use, and durable. The name Velcro is often used to refer to all hook and loop tape, among which Touchtape is an excellent brand. Touchtape has many benefits:
- Easy and fast to simply sew on
- Laundry tabs stay fastened in the wash
- Does not fray
- 100% nylon
- Machine wash and dry.
1.5 inch wide.
Sold by the yard. Quantity = number of yards.
Hook side and loop side sold separately. Loop is softer. Hook has bristles that grab and stick to the loop.
We cannot guarantee matching dye lots in the hook side and loop side of any color. The Touchtape arrives to us with slight color variations from the manufacturer.
How much do I need?
Width of the diaper front + Width of laundry tabs=amount of loop x number of diapers you are making
Width of closure tabs=amount of hook x number of diapers you are making
How do I sew Touchtape?
- Use a universal or ballpoint needle (size 80/12 or smaller) and polyester thread
- Sew inside the outer edge with a straight or zigzag stitch
- It may seem like the Touchtape is too bristley to sew, but the presser foot will smash it down as you go

I like this product much better than the Velcro brand kind that I bought from a brick and mortar store. This one was easier to sew and I found that my thread didn't break while sewing the hook side, which was a problem when I was using the Velcro.

מוצר ממש מעולה, רך ומצד שני חזק. ניסיתי סקווטשים אחרים ואין מה להשוות.
Touchtape is better than regular Velcro!

I bought this upon recommendation from another sewing friend and so far I'm really happy with it! It is a gift for my daughter-in-love/grace and very soon she will be using these diaper covers and be able to review better than I can! I expect the best!

This is the highest quality hook and loop around! I only wish it came in more colors.
Holds up well, edge may scratch

After 6 months of heavy use it still works well and looks new. It doesn't fray at all. I have one issue. The edge is sharp. The front of my wiggle worm's diaper cover folded in and the edge of the tape scratched his belly. I had sewn it on with a straight stitch 1/8th of an inch from the edge. Next time I will use a zigzag overhanging stitch.
Its works so much better
