This upsets me because I thought E6000 was like a forever glue.
That tells me that anything I made using E6000 months ago is probably falling apart!
And that does not make me happy. I know I used a new tube of glue because I had just started making bows and that is all I used.
That is very disconcerting. Kind of like what I felt when I discovered Fabri-Tac didn't last either. I just started getting into the e6000 for my embellished flip flops. I don't want to worry that things will fall off after I sell them! I guess the best way to be certain something won't fall off is to sew it on. But even that is not feasible sometimes.
