How do I finish this chair makeover?

I'm FINALLY about to finish up a project that's involved a lot of procrastination and I have a question. This is my first time doing something like this. The first photo shows one of the chairs before I started working on them. I've now covered the backs and seats and have stained the wood darkish blue. Now I have to attach the backs and seats to the wood. The second photo is a close-up of the back of one of the chairs. The black dots show where the hardware will attach it to the wood. In case the fabric might want to unravel, I'm thinking of putting some glue (maybe Elmer's?) on the fabric on those areas. I plan to cut a small "X" in the fabric with an Xacto knife unless some of you experienced people know a better way to make a hole for the hardware. Is glue a good idea? Or is it necessary? Suggestions?
