    Default Suggestions for permanent, sewable glue or adhesive

    I need ‘permanent’ glue that I can sew over.

    Am making a collage quilt (Laura Heine) and have some small and what will be intricately cut pieces of fabric that need to be adhered. Once all pieces are adhered you press the whole thing with steam (hence the requirement for permanent/ non-water soluble). Then you quilt the whole thing. Hence the
    need to sew over.

    Steam a seam and the like are too hard to work with, with small intricate pieces.

    (Why oh why do I take on projects that are beyond my capabilities!!?? :-) )

    Thanks in advance.

    Can you apply Steam a Seam before you do the intricate cutting?

    The fabric doesn’t remain adhered to the steam a seam with these pieces no matter how well I bind it or how careful /delicate I am with cutting it.

    Thanks!!
    She does the whole thing with glue then quilts. I started with steam a seam on many big pieces and therefore need to blast it wit steam before quilting. Was concerned that pieces glued with this glue would lose adherence sine it is not for washable projects?

    I think what you want is fabritac. https://www.amazon.com/Beacon-Adhesi...gateway&sr=8-1

    I don't know if it is sewable though. It is definitely permanent.

    I haved used that before. You just need some little dots of it. There is no way it will come off. You could fix a zipper with it. lol
