If regular Scotch tape is going to be too sticky, leave a sticky residue on the fabric or perhaps damage the fabric when removed, I will use the kind of tape one uses to secure gauze bandages onto skin. It's not nearly as sticky, just as easy to remove, and sometimes more visible than regular clear tape.
Tape is a mainstay item in my sewing tray. I use it primarily for altering patterns, but it seems to find its way as an easy fix to many other sewing dilemmas.
