Try E6000. I personally use crazy glue for some things, but never around leather/fabric. Only when a stone needs a little extra security!

It really really depends on what you are gluing.  I use E6000 as well, but don't like the smell and how thick it gets sometimes, so I also use Beacon 527, which is thinner.  For some things, I will also use a 2 part epoxy resin - such as gluing swarovski crystals - that was what was advised by the company rep in a workshop I took, and I have used it for other things as well. 

When I use ribbon or leather, I have ued the Beacon 527 for the clamps, which were ribbon or cord clamps, which I then attached the clasps to, using jump rings.
