What type of glue should I use for gluing googley eyes to fabric.  I want them to stay put without making the fabric all gross. 

Thanks so much!

Fabri-tac sounds like it would be your best bet.

I just use a hot glue gun. Put a small amount on. If you have any coming out beyond the edges, you can carefully cut it off once it has cooled/dried. Good luck.

I thought about using hot glue.  The fabric is cotton... I don't think it will melt or react weird.  Fabri-tac huh?  I do plan to do more embellishment on my bags and stuff.  I'll have to see how much it costs.  Thanks so much!

You may want to look into googley eyes that you can sew on. I'm not at all sure of where to find them but I was given a bunch of them, so you must be able to find them in stores.

Those are great suggestions for gluing them on though Smiley

I hot glued!  You really have to try hard to pop them off.  Here's a link to the finished projects.
