The seam of my Wilton 14 in. pastry bag came loose. I like the flexibility of of the bag so I'd like to fix it if I can. What kind of glue can I use that is food safe and flexible? Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

I would just suggest throwing it away and purchasing another one. icon_smile.gif

I agree. It has lost it's tensil strength in the area of the hole, and will continue to open, no matter what you do to try and keep it closed.

Sorry grams, it's time to toss it and buy a new one. They don't last forever unfortunately. icon_sad.gif

I tried this and it did not work. As soon as you attempt a few washes they fall apart again. I agree with everybody else, time for a new one!

This is a quick fix - basically a one time use fix if it breaks in the middle of decorating and you don't have time or can't get another one right away. I use white surgical tape (the fabric kind) on the outside. I have only used it on the outside of the disposable bags when I get those annoying squirt leaks near the coupler and I don't want to start over with a new bag. I throw it away after that so i don't think it would hold up to washing. I hope the surgical tape is safe - I figured it was since it is sterile to start with.
