Default Which one is better??

Hey all! I'm still new to this bow making stuff and have made alot of the lined alligator clips for my daughter. I'm just wondering which glue is better to use for those..hot glue (which I've been using) or some kind of fabric glue or something along those lines. And if hot glue is better..what's the best way to keep the bows nice and clean, no overspill of glue on the edges, or those crazy little glue strings everywhere?? Thanks ya'll!

I use hot glue to line the clips. Not getting the strings of glue just takes a little practice (I kind of "rub" for lack of a better term the nozzle at the end of where I'm gluing to "wipe it" off) if that makes sense.
There was a post recently on it actually! LOL Also, a lot of us use e6000 for the ribbon or embellishments.
The glue is really just a preferance to each person!
