I'm gluing felt to felt what is your favorite glue for this? Right now I'm using tacky glue but it's not my favorite. I could use suggestions> Should I pick up fabric glue is it any better?

I have not glued a ton of felt, but the last time I did I used fabric glue, and I found it did not soak into the felt as much as the tacky glue did in the past.

I have used super glue ,but it will turn white on felt .It's ok if your not going to see it,but you have to be quick.It's best to use the brush on type ,a real thin coat.

I have used several different kinds myself. Still trying to find the perfect glue though...

fabri-tac is what i've used... too much can soak through and make things crunchy, though.

do you think fabric tac is better than tacky glue?

I have used hot glue. It melted the fibers together so well I couldn't get it apart when I made a mistake. I was using the ecospun felt though, not wool, so that might make a difference.

Good link, Moddyboy! I have tried using dots of elmer's or tacky glue, but just decided to forgo the glue altogether, and stitch the felt. It takes more time, but doesnt make the felt all stiff.

You must try Gutterman Creativ HT2. For me it's the best for gluing felt to felt ;)
