Default How do YOU attach your ostrich puffs?

So I have been making cotton beanies with the puffs/ostrich puffs for a long time and have never had a problem with the puff coming off. I use hot glue to attach them.
I had a customer email me yesterday and she said that the ostrich puff came off the hat. I asked her to mail the hat back to me and I will pay the postage. I will redo one for her but am just wondering does anyone do something else to attach it to the hat. I dont know if maybe it was played with and the feathery part was just pulled off or what happened. Its never happened before!!

Does anyone have any suggestions as to a different way? You cant really sew it on...or can you?

Thanks!!!

I NEVER permenatly fasten anything to the cap, i always put it on the clip first AND THEN ADD IT TO THE HAT

If you want it to be permanently on there...I definitely wouldn't use hot glue...I would try maybe glue & sewing it on...Or just sewing it on by looping the thread around and through where your poof ends come together.

I hot glue mine to hats and have never had one come off. I have also put them on clips and added a loop to the hat to clip it on.

i have sewn them on but recently i started putting them on pin backs that way they can take it off the hat and use it somewhere else and the hat doesnt have a loop on it like when you put it on a alligator clip.

If I'm attaching them to kufis, I hot glue them to a lined alligator clip. If I'm attaching them to cotton beanies, I sew them, kinda like sewing on a button.
