This weekend I made more coin purses. I’m happier with the pattern I’m using (graciously shared with me by Bree), but the gluing part still sucks. I spent a fair amount of time on our back deck alternately freezing and cursing last night as I glued these into their frame and then spent another 20 minutes trying to clean the excess glue off my hands.
I didn’t order the glue that everyone seems to be using because I figured I could find it in town, but sadly could not. Instead I ended up with this glue from JoAnn’s and it is not fun to work with.
Most annoyingly, the glue keeps spilling out of the tube for 5-10 seconds after you quit squeezing, making a giant mess. It also smells so toxic that I can really only use it outside (which is challenging at this time of year). Does anyone have experience with UHU Glue? Is it better? Is it worth the price + shipping + waiting to buy it from etsy?
I have recipients chosen for all the coin purses except the Ruby Star Rising tea cups which I’m contemplating giving away with some fabric during the Sew Mama Sew giveaway day.
