Default Elastic Headbands

I bought some 3/8" elastic for headbands and I'm having a hard time getting the glue to hold. I used hot glue and after it had cooled, I put the headband on to make sure it fit and was comfy. After about an hour, it just popped apart. Should I use E6000 instead?

I have never made them myself yet but I have heard that Fabri-Tac works great.

I agree, I use Fabric-Tac for my elastic headbands. I havent had any problems yet. I clamp them with a binder clip and wait for them to dry. hth

I use hot temp glue sticks and have not had a problem. As the other ladies said, fabric tac also works.

Thanks for the quick replies. I don't have any Fabri Tac so I guess I will head to the store tomorrow. I should mention that the thinner, FOE I glued stayed fine.

Another question, when you are using the thicker elastic do you find you have to cut it longer to fit? The FOE and the 3/8" were cut the same length but the 3/8" felt tighter than the FOE.

i sew together my elastic. i have used the 5/8 and the thinner elastic. and they work perfectly. i have never had any of them fall apart.
im not a big fan of sewing but its fast and seems like its pretty secure.
