Default Rolled flowers: Sew or Glue?

I had been sewing my flowers and just started using hot glue. And so far it seems to go a lot slower. So am just wondering what you ladies do that make these? Maybe I'm putting glue to often, I don't know. When sewing I can just make a whole bunch then go back and sew them all. I may have to go back if I don't get any faster at this gluing. Any tips?

Thanks,
Lynn

I have always used hot glue but now I am thinking I may have to try sewing! I would like to hear from someone who has used both methods to see what they find works best.

I use hot glue. Just a dab ever 2 rolls or so... much quicker than sewing.

Thanks, gals! Maybe I just need to get use to it and then the speed will come. I'll try putting the glue less often.

Thanks again,
Lynn

I glue also, every 2nd roll. It does not hold as well for me if I glue every third roll. I tried sewing them, and they did not want to hold as well.
