Twill tape typically has a functional use, as reinforcement on seams. But colorful bands of it can also be used on almost any fabric as ornamentation.

Working one section at a time, iron twill tape on top of self-adhesive fusible tape, folding twill at a 45-degree angle at corners, and cutting fusible tape to match.
