I think most use heat n bond or heat n bond lite, works the same way as sequins. Though I wonder if fabric glue or hot glue would also work.
I am not sure that fabric or hot glue would work. I would think that you wouldn't get that smooth finish like you do with the heat n bond. I sometimes wonder about spray adhesive. However, as messy as I think it would be I don't think I will be trying it anytime soon.

I guess I'll stick with the tried and true method. LOL
