Best leather glue?

Post Number:#1  Unread postby GBov » Sat Oct 15, 2016 9:42 am


I had an idea last night as I lay awake for hours :roll: that might be really nice and that I will try soon. Squares of felt with rabbit hide glued firmly to one side, stitched together as a quilt.

So what glue would be best for bonding leather to felt? And that wont dry stiff?

Is there such a thing?

In my head its really pretty, soft on both sides (alpaca or angora or really soft sheeps wool or a blend of all three to make the felt from) and with all different colors felt and hide, an eye catcher extreme.

I wonder what it will look like in the real world? :lol: :lol: :lol:

I've used this before for holsters and gun belts. https://www.tandyleather.com/en/product ... act-cement

How are you planning to sew it all together? Maybe whip stitch flannel sides together?

I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Yeh, me too! :lol:

The first step has been made as I just couldnt wait any more to see how tea + hand cream + no breaking = ?

Not sure how well it will bond with felt but it turned out just fine. 8-) But I MUST be patient now and get moved before I go any farther with it!
