I sew my bows, but I use hot glue to line clips, attach centers and flowers, etc. You can use E6000, but I personally think it is messy and has a very strong odor. I use it once in a blue moon, but prefer hot glue hands down.

I use hot glue for most of what I do, lining clips, tux bows etc. I sew all of my bigger bows though. I haven't really tried anything else since this has worked so well for me so far. Are you using a high temp glue gun? If not, that may help. The only other glue I use on occasion is for attaching jewel embellishments since I find the glue gun can be too messy to attach smaller gems and the jewel glue holds better in my experience.

hmmm im not shure the glue gun says high temp on the side of it but may be the blue its self is wrong or something cues it just doesent hold well. iv been using the E6000 stuff that someone recomended but it continues to run out of the tube no matter what i do so that makes a huge mess and waist quite a bit but the stuff holds great even for a tiny dot. Is that something else besise this stuff that hold good.

I use hot glue for almost everything making bows. You can't take my bows apart without ruining them. I use a serious glue gun not one of those little bitty 1.99 guns they don't heat the glue to a high enough temp. Most people do not realize all glue guns are not created equal. I recommend aleenes ultimate http://www.adhesivetech.com/consumer...&CID=56&TID=52
Also you need a gun that dispenses the glue quickly enough that the first of what you dispense does not cool before you cover the whole area you are attaching.

I sew my bows but use a glue gun for attaching to clips and lining the clips. So far, I haven't had any problem at all. I do agree with the other posters, it has to be high temp and a good glue gun. It's really worth the lil bit of extra you might pay.

I use fabri-tac for a most of what I make, but I am more into making headbands and hair flowers than the elaborate gorgeous bows some of the ladies here make.
