I use invisible thread.

Like this idea!

This is a good question. I'd like to know everyone's ideas too. What if it's something that can't be sewn well?

For things that are small, I use hot glue (assuming they glue well). On the underside, I use a sequin (the same color as the tutu) to catch the glue and keep it looking neat.

Ok so invisibe thread. Never heard of it but KOOL! Thanks ladies as usual yall save the day again. I was thinking hot glue would be messy and might even melt the tulle. I never thought about covering the back side with something. I guess I could do that with felt ont he back to keep it soft.

When you apply the dots or spots to them it looks like felt circles. Is that what people are using?

Try using fabric glue instead of hot glue - it works great! I use aleene's brand and it works fantastically. I usually like to sew everything on, but for felt pieces or pom-poms on a tutu I use the fabric glue.

I was wondering this also and thought to use a hot glue gun.

These are good ideas. Wouldn't have thought to do that. I would've made a mess and would've been highly upset.

Thanks for sharing ladies!!
