Default Fabri-tac or Hot glue?

I use fabri tac on my bows but my daughter has been able to pull them apart... is hot glue better (stronger hold) and if so do you burn your fingers all the time with it?

I like to sit in the middle of the floor to make bows so I never thought of hot glue until I came here..LOL I may need to move closer to a wall or break down and sit at the table.

I use both--I like to use Fabri-Tac more often, but I think hot glue does hold better. My problem is that the hot glue set ups before I have a chance to get it the way that I want it.

I'm a hot glue fan, but I also agree that the hot glue sets up fast, so you may just need to experiment with both and see which one works best for you....or you may find that you might use both of them throughout the process of making a bow. And don't worry about burning your fingers with the hot glue gun. Mine are numb now.

I prefer to use fabri-tac, my dd pulls them apart if I use hot glue she can't when I use the fabri-tac. When I do use the hot glue I burn my fingers all the time-you will get used to it.

Definitely hot glue. My daughter has put bows in her mouth and the fabri-tac ones have fallen apart. The hot glue stays. I have burned my fingers and I am used to it now.

Hot glue. Yes, I burn my fingers, but most of the time, I don't even notice it anymore.
