HELP PLEASE!!!

Post by Guest on Mon 8 Feb 2010 - 9:19

I want to stick some medium weight chipboard letters on to a canvas tote bag. What sort of glue would you choose for this to ensure the letters don't fall off? I have glossy accents, diamond glaze, PVA glue, Pritt super gel and UHU. Which would be best do you think?

hmmm it its a holey canvas the pva might do the job because it will dry clear and won't be seen.

Have you got any silicon glue,will that work maybe.

Difficult one as fabrics can be so annoying.

I use UHU for nearly everything. In fact, I think I keep them
in business. They do a stronger one which might be better for
the job you want. Or have you any Pinflair Gel ? Martin Parker
from Create and Craft said that he even mended his shower with it.

Thanks everyone. Steph, my own inclination was towards UHU so will try that first.

Yes I'd go for something with a bit of fexibility like UHU.
Sounds interesting, we want to see.

Well all my craftish friends in our craft club have the same coloured totes (how silly is that!! PINK of course!) and I wanted to stick some chipboard letters on the front of mine. I have alcohol inked them then glossy accented them and they are looking good - just got to stick em on now!!

I don't think I would use super glue as sometimes it can make fabric brittle. Learnt from experience,lol.
