I have had the best luck with Sobo. It discolors the fabric the least. It will come through the fibers if you use too much.

I use a spray adhesive. Leaves a light film on the fabric that gets sticky and adheres evenly. Many brands out there.

Depending on the ultimate use, you could also coat the wood and fabric with a clear gel medium. The medium will act as a glue and a finish at the same time. You can keep the fabric flat, or create texture by bunching up the fabric.

Here's a description of some of the products, but they can be purchased at Michael's if that's easier.

Sobo is a fabric glue sold at Hobby Lobby and other places.

Sobo would be good. I would also try Alieens Tacky glue. It's available at most crafting stores or stores with a crafting department.

I like ArtisticallySpeakings suggestion. (For what that's worth)

Spray adhesive might work for you---Eli

ArtisticallySpeaking, would mod podge work? would it have the same effect as the gel medium?
