do you guys know of a glue that works well with felt and that is nontoxic as well?

i usually use that tacky white glue that comes in the gold bottle, but that usually soaks right into the felt before it has a chance to start sticking, or it dries rock hard, isn't flexible, and ends up peeling apart anyway.

I think Aleenes Tacky glue people make a clear fabric glue that stays flexible after drying.
I sometimes use a glue stick to tack and then sew over fabric and felt.

I'm a big lover of Aleen's Tacky Glue, but I find Aleen's Fusion Fabric works better with felt (talking about wool felt, not the eco stuff -- haven't tried it with that).

If you apply pressure before it's dry or use an excessive amount, it will soak through, but I've only had that happen when I was rushing or not being careful.
