Does anyone have any good ways to attach a metal emblem to a bag? I am currently using Amazing Goop, which is glue, but I always get nervous about it envisioning them falling off for my buyers at some point. If I really pull, I can get them off, and I don't want to be able to.
Thanks

What are you gluing it to? Not all glues are created equal. If it's vinyl or faux leather, I've never found anything that will stick for long. If you have a metal drill you can drill holes in the metal piece and sew them on or attach to a ring or something and hang off a loop sewn to the bag.
