Hello again! Are you ready to learn how to glue baste? Yay! Let me start this post out by saying that I was s l o w to give glue basting a try. I have sew basted so long and was so used to it and I worried about removing the paper when glue basting, but I’m here to tell you that I’m a changed woman! And a total convert. Glue basting is majorly faster. No joke. And now I can’t imagine going back to sew basting.
Today there’s a video tutorial for exactly what this is all about. And don’t worry, tomorrow there’s a video for sew basting just in case you prefer that method.
