I have some 72" long red tulle fabric that had to have 1" pockets at each end of the 36" width. For the pockets, I was originally going to try just sewing them on a machine but I have to confess that I know nothing about sewing and have never done it, so I decided to try Liquid Stitch. The type I used is the "original" type that Walmart carries. No iron, just apply and let dry. I ran into some difficulties though and had to use fairly large amounts in spots to keep the fabric together. It says 24 hours before being able to be exposed to water on the Liquid Stitch tube, but it has been about 15 hours and the liquid stitched spots still stick together if I try to fold the fabric together. I guess my question is, how long will it take before the Liquid Stitch dries completely? Another question: If I had tried to sew these pockets, would I have been able to do it on one of those small, hand-held sewing machines? Walmart has those, but I don't know if they're any good. If I can't get this Liquid Stitch to dry faster, I may have to redo the fabric and sew it next time. I was thinking of placing the fabric out in the sun. It's hot here, about 85 degrees F and moderately humid.
Thanks in advance,
