    That's pretty! I would use the E600 glue. squir a small amount on a piece of wax paper or aluminum foil and use a stick to dab the glue on the fabric to apply the rhinestone. It holds very well.

    Fabric glue or Gorilla glue will work great, but you still ought to wash the garment by hand. The friction in a washing machine might break or damage rhinestones. The photo you posted shows real style. 😇

    Hello! It is a good thing you asked because there are some glues you definitely do not want to use to apply rhinestones to fabric. I am providing a link below that you can click on to view the glues that are best and those you should avoid for this particular project. My personal suggestion and the glue I have found most successful is E-6000.

    E6000 would not be right for this project. What about Gutermann glue? https://clutch-me.com/2010/04/27/tips-gutermann-glue-for-your-clutches/

    Joann's has a "hot glue" system to apply crystals and gems to fabric items... it involves a special applicator which heats the special glue that comes on the back of the "jewels"... I found it in the area with the Sawarski (sp) crystals.. I used it on a blouse that has lace applique accents... and it has been washed numerous times and has not lost a jewel...

    I go with Anna Bacallao and Janet Panos. E6000 is my go to. Use a toothpick to dab on the glue.

    The dance studio my granddaughter goes to uses E6000 to attach rhinestones to their costumes. There’s a special attachment they use on the tip that allows them to put a very small amount directly to the fabri. Works great.

    I use a glue called Gem tack. I purchased on Amazon. I think it works great.

    Clear E 6000...stands up even in the dryer. As stated above,use a toothpick. The glue tends to have long string hairs ,kinda like the cheese on a pizza when you lift a slice. Walmart carries multiple types of e6000,craft section,cheapest I've found

    Hi there, I love using a web site called "This to That" - https://www.thistothat.com/ to figure out what the best glue is for projects. You just need to enter the two things you want to glue together and they'll tell what to use.
