FABRIC GLUE STICK
Make sure that your fabric has been pre washed and dried WITHOUT using dryer sheets or fabric softener. They interfere with either of the glues performing the way they should
This is a temporary glue that holds fabric together instead of pinning! The secret to this glue is that you MUST let it dry and it will not gum up your needle. Keep the slue stick in a sandwich bag.
GLUE IN YOUR ZIPPERS
Baste your seam together, press open, turn garment to wrong side, put glue on zipper tape, hand press tape in place and let it dry (about 10 minutes). Turn to the RIGHT side of the garment where you can see and just stitch a box on the outside. You will get perfect zippers every time! You can even glue separating zippers in place. Never have them uneven again.
GLUE TO HOLD BEFORE STITCHING
Press up your hem and “glue “in place…let it dry and stitch.
MATCH YOUR PLAIDS
Or anything that needs to be matched. Glue at the 5/8″ seam and line up other dies. Press to set the glue up instantly. Let dry and stitch.
STITCH ON TRIM OR POCKETS
This is a great way to “try” a trim or pocket placement without pins! Glue in place-let it dry -try it on. If you are happy-stitch. If you are not happy, wet the area and pull off trim or pocket. This is NOT a permanent glue …but it holds till you stitch.
Buy two—keep one in your purse. If your hem comes undone or pocket gets ripped-you can glue yourself back together till you can sew it for good!
