Default So frustrated!

So.......... hot glue peels off so I didn't want to use it on my hats so I tried fabri tac to hold large flowers in place. Pushed down for a minute or so and let dry for about 2 1/2 hours. If I tug gently, it comes right off. I am frustrated. Suggestions WELCOME. I really don't want to do E600 because it is a large flower and I feel like that would be a lot of it and I don't really have an easy way to clamp the large flowers.

Have you tried sewing them to the hat? Or sewing + gluing? I haven't ever tried attaching flowers to hats so I'm just throwing that out there.

Can you sew the bottom layer of petals onto the hat and then hot glue the rest of the flower back together? Or have you tried Liquid Stitch? I think it's better than fabric tac. I remember when the toggle headbands were the newest thing, the liquid stitch was the only thing that worked to layer double ruffle ribbon and grosgrain together. I'm not sure where you can get it from though...I'm in Canada and I got some at the fabric store.

I don't really know how to sew them on
And...... I feel like it would take a long time? And.... how do you sew something really large like that? And..... And.... And..... so what you are saying is.... I should stop complaining and learn how to sew them on?

i usually add them to an aligator clip so they can take them off to wash the hat if they need to, then its kinda like them getting 3 items in one cause they can wear just the hat or just the flower or the hat nd flower

So.... thank you to your advice. Next time I am definitely sewing!!
After all that, I let them dry over night. Farbi tac peeled off. I probably didn't do something right in the glueing last night. So I decided to just hot glue since there was a hard patch now and can't sew a loop or anything. I can't believe it, but the hot glue seems to be holding the BEST. Too funny.
Next round, sewing loop.
