That's about 10 times more than you need. The object of gluing the fabric to the sew foam is only to hold the pieces together long enough to sew around the pattern line at the perimeter, and that takes a minimal amount of glue. After you have sewn the piece around the perimeter, the glue has no function anymore. That's why I recommend using foam to foam glue that is not high heat resistant and will release when sitting in a hot car.

The reason you glue the fabric to the sew foam is to provide a smooth, flat, stable surface so the fabric doesn't shift against the foam while you're sewing it and create wrinkles or puckers.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
