Hi everyone!
I have been searching online this morning, but couldn't find information about gluing a rhinestone or flat back to elastic - in particular silk elastic.

I want to use a 15mm wide ribbon and don't want to use hot glue or felt pads.
Can I glue with e600? I think i would stretch it a bit first but will the flat back pop off?
What's your experience gluing with elastic?

just want to swim in a tub of beads...

I helped a friend do something similar sounding to what you are doing.  We sewed a square smaller than the item being glued on with regular sewing thread.  That way it would keep that section of the elastic from stretching.  We then used E6000 to glue the item down.
It worked for her, so it might work for you.

When in doubt, use more glue!

Look Ma, I'm on Ravelry!
