Sticky Tips-Glue Sticks

on January 27, 2015

Glue sticks have a number of different uses-You either love them or you hate them.  I love them!  I get clear and purple to use on a variety of color fabric.

If you find washable glue sticks on sale, buy a few dozen-They will stay fresh and pliable if you store them in the refrigerator.

Use glue sticks on applique pieces to hold them in place instead of pinning.

Glue sticks are great when working with synthetic suede and leather and the like -really anything you don’t want to pin-you can utilize clips but I find that sometimes they will leave a mark.

Glue sticks work perfectly for English Paper piecing also-I glue the fabric to my card stock Hexies (my personal favorite), Press them, Let them cool then I take out the card stock and press again-this makes them so much easier to whip stitch together!
