I bought some velcro circles to use on the baby bibs I'm making for a friend and I'm having major issues. I didn't pay much attention to the first package of circles I bought, and didn't realize until I opened it up that the veclro had really
strong adhesive on the back. I put it in place, but decided to sew it as well. When I tried this, however, it coated my sewing machine needle in glue and unthreaded it with every pass through. Okey, not going to work.
I bought another package of velcro circles, this time looking for the "sew on" kind. I got home, opened it up, and guess what's on the back of my sew on velcro? Adhesive!
I can't use my sewing maching to stitch it on, and hand sewing it has proved impossible. What should I do? Is there a trick to sew on velcro that I don't know about? I'm afraid to pull the circles off of the fabric, because it's fleece and the glue is so sticky that I think it might ruin the fabric. Grrr! Of course, this is the last step in making these bibs, so I'm extra annoyed that I might wreck the whole project and all my work will be kaput.
Any suggestions? Please?!
