I make flower pins and embellish purses with flowers and feathers. I've been using hot glue to adhere everything, however, the hot glue comes apart sometimes. It especially doesn't stick to plastic.

Does anybody have a suggestion for a good glue? I like that hot glue doesn't seep into fabric and dries quickly. Any other glue out there that does something similar??

*I'm sure there are already threads about this, however, I searched and couldnt' really find an answer...*

fabric glue works really well, if you don't have that you can try tacky glue.
good luck

I would use those, however, my only issue would be if it dried fast like hot glue does.
