Thank you for sharing your pattern!  He looks like a very sweet and innocent soul.

I was wondering if you have any suggestions about which glue to use when gluing felt to crochet?.  I was using Sobo and it soaked through the felt and into the yarn and was gone before it could do it's job!

I have 2 different glues here: the first one is "Crafter's Pick Fabric glue". it's washable, it dries clear but you have to use a good drop of it cause it does soak in.  The second one is in a silver tube, it has the number '3000' or '300' on it, i bought them both at walmart, and the tube one says 'industrial strength craft glue' on the label. I like this one the most cause you don't need that much at all, it dries really quick and clear, but it stinks super bad!!  When i use this one the smell stays for a good couple days, but it's the best one i have found so far.  it's also washable.
