I have a metal purse frame and I am making a bag for my niece's prom.

Panic..panic..as it is on Thursday.

But I have not got any fabric glue and the chances of me finding it round here are low.

But I do have E6000 - will that work?

Thank you for any advice.

E6000 will glue practically anything together.

But it has toxic fumes. So air out the finished purse very well before giving it to anyone.

I sell Gutermann glue. Please check out my post, as it may be of some help:


It's sold at my store and ships from NJ.

E6000 is primarily made for adhering metals in jewelry fabrication, such as cold connections, or connections that won't need heat or solder to adhere the two. I would not recommend adhering any sort of fiber such as fabric with E6000, for it will alter the fabric and make it very stiff or not hold for the duration of the purse use.

Seems like it would work. If it can glue metal to metal, then it should be able to glue fabric to metal. Let us know if it works.
