    I decided that I could make my own inexpensive glue basting bottle today.I used a hair coloring bottle with the sharp pointed spout and my hubby inserted one of those basketball inflater needles inside the lid and pushed it as far as possible to the end and then snipped it off below that that little side hole that is on the tubing.You have to tap it with an hammer to get it to the end of the spout,but it works great!!!!!!

    I forgot to add that after you cut the end of the metal off below the little side hole,I then just used a finger nail file to smooth the little rough edges.

    Using glue to stick your fabrics before sewing. Most people use either Roxanne's or Elmer's School glue.
