Once you use a glue stick, it could become your best friend. It is so easy to just tack something in place temporarily (like a zipper or seam). Another good thing is if you need to take out the zipper because of a mistake, it just comes right off. Some glue stays on the fabric, but make sure you get the washable kind & it will wash right out. I use it all the time & I love it! Give it a try, I think you'll like it.
