Fabric Glue

Fabric glue is the sewer’s new best friend. Fabric glue is ideal for repairing any cloth, fabric, or clothing without dealing with a sewing machine, needle, and thread. It is a mending liquid or thin adhesive layer that allows you to fix loose hems or torn materials in seconds. This easy to use glue bonds fabrics instantly and dries clear. It is a quick, convenient, and efficient way to make permanent and invisible repairs. Fabric glue can also be used for bonding fabrics to a variety of other materials, from leather and suede, to beads, glass, plastic, metals, and rubber. Use fabric glue for arts and crafts projects, repairing clothing, or any project that involves fabric and other materials. Fabric glue creates a powerful bond, is long lasting, and can withstand most environments.


 Forms of fabric glue:

There are many different forms of fabric glues. It comes in a variety of styles and brands and varies in color, size, and method of application, such as spray glue or iron on adhesive. Depending on what kind of fabrics you are using, liquid fabric glue is available, or adhesive layers are also sold. There are also permanent and non-permanent forms of fabric glue. For a more durable and lasting project, or while repairing clothing, permanent fabric glue would be a better choice. For costumes, arts and crafts, or lightweight materials, non-permanent is the way to go. Non-permanent forms of fabric glues are non-washable, where as permanent forms are fine to wash.

Helpful hints:

Be sure to thoroughly clean and dry the fabric before using the adhesive, as fabric glue will not hold onto material covered in oils or dust. Also, while applying the fabric glue, do not stretch the material, but leave the material in the desired form to avoid bunching and wrinkles. In order to remove fabric glue, although you may be able to scratch some off, store bought stain remover is necessary, as well as washing in hot water after the remover has been applied.
