Fabric glue can help you do your sewing tasks easier, and it can also save you a bunch time when you’re in a hurry. The best part is that since you don’t need any special skills to figure out how to use fabric glue, it’s just a matter of testing it and applying it.
Here are some tips that can help you a lot in your daily life.
1. REPLACING PINS
If you’re the type of sewer who constantly sews over your pins, you should consider replacing some of the pins with glue. This can be especially handy if you’re using a overlocking-machine, as sewing over pins with your overlocking-machine can cause serious damage to the machine.
2. ATTACHING SMALL PIECES
Have you ever made small projects like fabric jewelry and noticed that some pieces are just too small to sew together? Other pieces need glue to hold things in place temporarily. For some of those situations, hand stitching is a good solution, but for temporary holds you can use glue.
Whether you find a hole in your jeans or just need to attach a Girl Scout patch as soon as possible, fabric glue can temporarily hold things in place until you have time to give it the royal treatment. Just be sure to allow a few minutes of drying time.
4. QUICK, TEMPORARY HEMS
It never fails that when you’re in a hurry, you notice hems that need some attention. If you are running out the door and you don’t have time to press and sew a nice hem, fabric glue is a great temporary alternative. You can fix the hem on the spot with the glue, then sew it permanently later when you’re not late for that important appointment.
