Question Fabric Fusion?

Hi, pretty new to the bowmaking thang... My glue gun drives me to tears as it leaks & leaves me & my bows tangled up in strings of glue...

Anyways, I bought this new stuff at Walmart called Fabric Fusion-anyone tried that? Will that hold very well? I've heard E-6000 is pretty noxious. I make my bows at night while my daughter is sleeping, I don't really want to have to go outside to make bows late at night or stay inside and perhaps be found dead in the morning! As But I also don't want to waste money on something that doesn't work (though it was pretty cheap-but I waste too much money on stuff I like & don't need already--no money to waste on stuff I don't & don't need)

Thanks

I have never heard of it but what kind of glue gun do you have? I have a surebonder and I love it. Sometimes if I leave it on for a long time (a few hours) it will drop a couple of blobs but it helps if you pull a little on the glue stick.

I also struggled with the glue gun,,strings everywhere! I started using E-6000 to do flipflops and have not gotten the glue gun out since. I love the stuff. I screw off the cap, then use a toothpick or popsicle stick to apply it with. I haven't gotten "stoned" on the stuff yet, but I would be cautious if your child(ren) are in the same room where you are working. I actually have my sewing/craft area in a vented laundry room,,,maybe you can find a vented area

I really like E6000 ~ but I do usually have the ceiling fan on when using it. Then again, I don't do very many at once.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to reply (Very busy weekend, so I haven't had a chance to see replies till now).

Thanks, Ronda; I will definately be returning the fabric fusion.

Lisa Marie, what is surebonder?

And Arin, I'd heard of Fabritac before; but where do you find it?

Thanks again to everyone for being so helpful!

I use E6000, my mini glue gun (but it doesn't leak) and Aleene's tacky glue found at Walmart!
