I want to add some felt to my crochet, Does anyone know what glue is best? It needs to be permanent, and washable. Thanks in advance

I use this stuff you can get at any craft store called Liquid Stitch.  I use it on everything!  Im a short girl and my sewing skills are rather lacking and I cant afford to have every pair of work pants altered.  You can wash it, dry it, iron (only aft it is dry) it.  When it comes out of the tube it looks and smells like Elmer's glue.  It dries almost clear.  I hope this helps!

I've used all the regular fabric glues before, they work ok, but the one i mainly use is from walmart called 'Aleene's Super Fabric'.  It comes in a grey/silver tube with the words 'platinum bond' near the top.  It's permanant, it sets in 2-4 hours, and you can wash it after 72 hours.  It's a stinky glue, but the least smelly of the other ones i've bought before.  After like a couple hours or so you can't smell it anymore. 
For toys that i give to little kids, i use any kind of fabric glue that says 'non toxic' on it. 

make today a positive one!
