    Try putting ice on it to harden the glue enough to peel off or the opposite place a piece of fabric on top and use a iron to heat the glue to be able to peel off.

    Not sure you can? Could you Use Fabric Pens and Make a design around it? or Patch over it........

      Funny. I did that around an ink stain in college 40 years ago! May go with that flow.
  • Put in freezer and peel off when frozen.

      I was wearing them. The way I was sitting allowed a little fold of fabric, and of course that was where it dripped! I brushed it with my hand while it was still warm, but cool enough not to leave a mark. *l* I also thought of my decorated jeans as my hippie jeans.

    Just a thought: Try putting an ice cube over the glue and see if you can get it to harden and scrape off with a flat edge razor blade. If not try a blow dryer or heat gun and use a plastic putty knife and scrape it off.

      Thanks...it is actually in the fabric. I don't have a heat gun but can attempt with hair dryer. Maybe blot what gets hot enough to melt.

    I'm going to try to blot it with paper towels as I press it with a hot iron to get as much as I can out, and then if I think it is too noticeable, do a little embroidery or fabric paint to make the flaw into a feature. Wish I had gotten to it sooner, but it is what it is. Thank you all for the suggestions, and for the quick trip down memory lane!
