I've been using the Elmer's Washable Glue Method for over 7yrs. I don't find it messy or inconvenient. It only takes a few little dots to hold it in place. JMO

For binding gluing I use tiny dots of Elmer's Washable School glue and hot iron. My DD used permanent Elmers glue to bind a play quilt and that binding is still stuck in place after many many washings.

Thanks for suggesting this. Holding the binding in my left hand is the worst part of binding for me, so I really appreciate the tip.

I just worry about adding all these chemicals to our works of art. Who knows what the long term implications are for putting glue on the fabrics?

I believe we have talked about Elmer's washable school glue being starch based - that sounds minimal chemicals I'm guessing. Plus it washes out. Of course if someone is sensitive to the ingredient they would avoid it to be safe.

This is the video I watched a few months ago and have done my bindings this way ever since. I LOVE this method!!

I am not as worried about the chemicals since they do wash out and kids and teachers have been using thee products for years. If there was some horrible hazard we would be aware of it by now. Elmer's glue has been around since 1947. Maybe if you are not going to wash something then there may be a concern since it is a petroleum product.
