Knitted badges

Postby TonyH » Sun Jul 22, 2018 6:22 pm

I’m in the process of knitting poppies for charity. The pattern says I should ‘glue’ a badge pin to the back, but it doesn’t say what glue to use. I’ve tried sewing the pin on, but it looks a bit messy. I thought fabric glue might work but then again I wondered if it would be better to use a glue gun. Or should I use just pva glue? The pattern is quite an old one and the website where it came from no longer works so I can’t go back to them. Anyone have any ideas?

I don't think pva would last. I like Gorilla glue but that might be a bit of overkill in this case. This stuff might work well too: Copydex 1652 Adhesive Jar 125ml

Well after a little trial and error (and more than a few expletives) I’ve decided that the glue gun seems to work. Tried some super glue, but that just didn’t stick. Copydex worked but took ages to dry.

Glad you found something Tony - the only thing that I can get superglue to stick to is my fingers.
