Thumbs up first time w Elmer's glue

I have been reading about all the uses with Elmer's Glue on this site, soooo I thought I would give it a try putting a patch on the knee of my hubby's jeans.

Well, thank you, thank you girls, that was the easiest patch I ever sewed on his jeans and it looked darn good.

Turned a 1/4 " under the patch and glued then glued it onto the knee and zigzagged all it.

I'm also loving the washable glue stick for smaller projects.

I have four more scrappy hot pads to bind. I'm using Elmer's on them and it goes sooo much smoother!

Now is the time to stock up!!! All the stores have great prices on the school glue for the beginning of the school year.

I haven't used it to make the quilt sandwich yet, but will most likely never, ever do a binding again without it. It allows me to so perfectly place the binding that I am amazed!
