This is an old topic I started but I edited to add this question.  What kind of glue should I use to keep these buttons on a shoe??  I have used barges and e6000 but they both have peeled off.  The shoe is made of thick manmade material.  I wanted to glue them because sewing looked like a pain.  Maybe I need a certain needle???

I dunno how strong e6000 is compared to superglue... I don't know if that would work any better. A problem with glue for this project is that, obviously, the fabric of the shoe there bends and moves, which glue doesn't really accomadate for - whereas, if its stitched, the thread allows it a little leyway so it doesn't pop off, but it's still very firmly attatched. I'd suggest a leather needle, a thimble, and alot of patience  Cool

I've read about epoxy adhesives and that they could be cured to be flexible.  Has anyone had experiece with epoxy and leather/plastics?

hmm.. maybe get a strong thimble and sew them on?

The earth, stained with the blood of a thousand dying soldiers, weeps as she welcomes them home.
