Default Please Help- Anyone who's made headbands!

Hello, I'm so happy to have found this forum! I have a few questions regarding the best type of adhesive to use on plastic headbands.

1. I want to adhere designer fabric to smoothly cover the headband. From what I can gather spray adhesive seems to be the most commonly used but I want something that I don't have to take outside and is not toxic to use in the presence of my 2 year old. I will not be putting anything else on the headbands so it is important that the glue is smooth and does not show through the fabric, etc.

2. For the woven ribbon headbands glue gun is used to tack the ribbon. In your experience does this hold long-term? I want to sell my products so it's very important that they last. Has anyone tried glue dots or anything else?

I would appreciate any advice you can give me as I am new to this and totally clueless. It would save me a ton of time and money.

Thank you!
