  • Yes you can use a glue gun on fabric. Make sure you have a nail file, letter opener, old credit card to smooth out the hot glue without burning your fingers.

    The glue gun leaves hardy "pieces" ... it's best to just tie the fabric around the pillow (a lot of How-to Steps on internet!!!) -- or go to walmart sewing section and buy that iron-on sticky tape... it works great for hemming and "sewing" without really seeing !! (Or dbl stick tape is even better than hot glue gun glue !!

    Walmart or any fabric stores sell a product that glues pieces together and all it requires is an iron. You put the pieces together with this between them, iron and you have two pieces attached together. It is called Stitch Witch and I have used it for a lot of things, make pillow cases, fixing hems on clothes and curtains. Cheap and easy.

    I would keep the glue to the edges only, that way if it is a little stiff, it won't create hard spots on the pillow itself. If it does start to come apart, it will be easy to fix with a little more hot glue.

    You can hot glue them as long as they are not going to be used very hard. If you want something that may take a bit of use, especially for the pillows, get iron on tape - some is called stitch witchery - it holds great

    Yes you can! They make specific hot glue sticks JUST FOR FABRIC! Make sure this is the glue you use since it is made specifically for delicate fabrics and is based on the temp of the glue. Go for it!
