I discovered Sharon Schamber’s method for binding quilts with glue and it has become my favorite method!
My one frustration was that when I used the regular Elmer’s bottle, the line of glue came out too heavy. I noticed in Sharon’s video, however, that she had a really nice and small metal tip on her glue bottle.
I’m not sure if I found the same one she uses but I was able to find one that works perfectly nonetheless!
I got it at Michaels.
Here’s what you get. There’s one bottle and top missing from this picture.
At first, I was filling up the plastic glue bottles that come with the kit with glue and attaching the metal tips. However, this was extremely messy and I kept having to fill up the bottle.
Then, after re-watching Sharon’s video, I realized that her tip was attached directly to the glue bottle. It couldn’t be that easy…right?
So, I unscrewed the orange tipped lid that comes with the Elmer’s glue bottle and used one of the lids and silver tips you see in the picture.
Voila! Perfect fit!
The only thing you have to pay attention to is the fact that this metal tip has a VERY small pin size hole. It plugs very easy if left to dry. The kit includes some metal wires which are the perfect size for cleaning out this hole.
I did find, however, that you still must rinse out the tip with warm water in between uses.
Here’s the fine print from the box…
Excellent product and one that makes glue binding SO easy!!!
