Sometimes, you realize midway through a project that you'd like to stabilize a seam, but you don't have any twill tape on hand. So whenever you're cutting out a garment, save the long, selvage edges of your fabric scraps. (The selvages are those thin edges that run along the length of your fabric. They keep the fabric from coming UN-woven, and they are strong.) Use sharp scissors or a rotary cutter to cut these off. Instant twill tape.
