Default Gluing Korkers

I was looking around on the Hip Girl store and came across these korker instructions. http://www.hipgirlclips.com/store/in...oducts_id=8721

I was just wondering if anyone glues theirs. I had sewn them in the past. But just curious how gluing works.

Have a great day!

I haven't seen this before. I always sew mine. I actually sew all my bows...I think it makes them more secure. Maybe someone else can help you.

I sew all my bows for security as well. I tried gluing a korker bow once and got 4 pieces together and threw it away. It was to stiff in the middle and didn't look right.

I saw those instructions also. I assume it would work fine but I sew mine as well. I like things I can easily make wherever I am and sewing is way more portable (for me) than gluing! I would think the gluing could get bulky as well?

I glue mine. I started out sewing mine, but I was scared if the thread broke the whole thing would fall apart. So, I started individually glueing each layer. Works for me.

That is what I was thinking too, it would be stiff in the middle. I will keep sewing, I was just curious....lol

I glue all of my korkers and have had no problem with them falling apart! I like the overall shape more than sewing.

I sew mine ! Just think it holds up better for me , I use a fairly thick thread !! My daughter had received some that were glued from a friend and after a few months some of the pieces started to come unglued ~

Yep, I sew mine with upholstery thread. When I first started I tried gluing them, but my my daughter chewed on them and got some pieces off. Now I sew all my bows. My sewn ones have been put through the ringer and are still very secure.
