Must use a glue that is water soluble, meaning it will wash out when it dries.
When using the glue bottle's application tip it comes out in a large drop. After it is glue set, the fabric is not pliable. I was able to machine stitch through it, but not hand quilt. I only hand quilt so this was a huge problem for me.
After much research, the suggestion was to replace to application tip with ones specifically created for bottles of glue. I don't like purchase costly items that I might use one in a blue moon or will get lost forever.
I searched and searched for DIY options... some included sticking a pin in the applicator... not a good idea it globed out. Another suggestion was to make one out of tape. It seemed wasteful. Not only was it a waste of time, it was a waste of tape. I tried a couple of other DIY tips, none were satisfactory. I finally found one!!! Wilton's Disposable Decorating Bags.
I tried out two methods using decorating bags. Both were successful. For the first method I only used the decorating bag, for the second I added piping tips.
