Default Probably a dumb question but I just wanted to know...

When you make your sculptures like the ladybug and bumblebee etc, do you sew it or hot glue? I've been making them for over a year and I've always hot glues but now that I am going to do craft fairs, I want the quality to be top knotch so I was thinking about sewing. Thanks for your help!

I used to sew mines at first but have been using hot glue for over a year and the end result is the same (if you actually control the amount of glue) and I haven`t had any problem...but it is soo much faster thought

I use hot glue or fabric tac depending on the sculpture and some actually require a little sewing just depends. As far as quality, just making sure you don't have it gooped and no one will know the difference!

With mine it just depends on where I am at. When I take my daughter to the park, I sew mine, but when I am at home or where I can use my glue gun I use hot glue. I have not had the bad quality either way. She is six and can do anything with them in and they dont fall apart.

Thanks ladies! I've always used hot glue and never had any complaints I just wanted to make sure since I was starting to put my name out there.
