Well I always use fabric glue for anything going on to fabric of any sort. You can get it in most stationers, craft shops, sometimes even newsagents. Otherwise, they stick quite well with glossy accents although I don't think you can put them in a tumble dryer with that.

I agree with Patty - fabric glue for fabrics and I use good old UHU for nearly
everything else.

We obviously have found the things that suit us two Steph - I am another UHU for Everything person!!! You would be astounded at some of the things in my house stuck firm and lasting with UHU.

Take care Billie, because the meltable sticks that go in the hot glue gun can melt some of the fabrics as well. Try a bit first!
