Fabri-Tak is the best – found at Walmart it’s billed as the “sewing machine in a bottle”. I have saved many outfits and/or updated hand-me downs into something nice with this glue – it’s washable and everything! I’ve repaired hems and salvaged ruined clothes, for example: My son wears the knees on his jeans to shreds.
I cut them down into shorts, glue on some ribbon trim and it’s good as new. This also helps with homemade baby gifts. Plain white onesies get a lift with little bows glued on front – no sewing machine or skills needed!
