I have a 2 months female sugar glider, and I followed all binding procedures, I put a piece of my clothes inside the cage and leave her for 3 days.
After 3 days she started coming for me and eating apple and moving around my shoulders and back for 2 days
In the 3rd day after playing with her, I wanted to return her to the cage, suddenly she jumped and I chased her and returned her back to 6.
After that, she don't want to play with me or taking the apple I catch it in my hand and she started running away from her cage every day and I was closing all escape way.
Unfortunately, the cage is not for suger glider because of that I bought a new cage for suger glider and I am waiting to be delivered
Now it has been more than a week and she still escaping her cage and come back to the cage for food or sleep and some time she sleeps outside the cage
She sleeps in my clothes I put inside the cage
Will bonding will be returned and she will trust me again?
Is letting her moving free inside the house will effect bonding process?
Any advice can be provided?

free around the house is dangerous. chew on power cords....bad
check out power outlets....bad. find a hole that could lead to outside the
house....very bad.
I have a room for my gliders, but I cover power outlets, cover power cord to tv. cover windows with netting.

I would get dried or live mealworms, dried last a long time, live go bad after
awhile, must be kept in refrigerator. for dried mealworms most of my gliders come out of hiding pretty fast. for live mealworms they come out very fast. they know
the difference the container makes when I shake it. plastic container, live
mealworms, a few shakes, gliders come RUNNING FAST. apple is NOT the flavor
treat to get gliders attention.

bonding takes time, bonding isn't always increasing progress, things can seem to go up and down or slow. Use bonding pouch. I pull out sleeping pouch and put
my hand in it during day while they sleep, so my hand is sleeping with them, but this is better if no biting.

Will bonding will be returned and she will trust me again?
gliders are adventurers, love to explore, during nighttime they will want to
run and explore NOT spend time with you unless its nap time. you need to do
bonding stuff so she will get to know your scent, this takes some time LONG times,
many weeks or months sometimes. 3 days in nothing, no time to bond.
 Look what I found on Ebay
