I remember some time ago, many months, there was a discussion about yarn glue for those pesky loose ends. I have a sweater which I'll be posting a picture of soon, made from bits & pieces or leftover yarn. I was able to use a Russian join for most of the changes, but I had a few in there that aren't twisted & couldn't be spliced like that. The sweater was made with double strands & large needles, so the ends will be peeking out. I bought some fabric glue called "Fray Check" which didn't work at all. Does anyone have a better suggestion & where it can be found? I appreciate your help.

Hi, I got some Aleene's "OK to wash it" fabric glue at JoAnne's. Maybe that would work for you. It's a permanent fabric bond. You don't need very much on the ends for them to stay put.

Fray check is used to keep ends of fabric from coming unraveled. I use it on the ends of the ribbon straps I sew for Dress a Girl. In knitting, when I have fringe, I use a drop on the tips of the yarn fringe. That way when I wash the item and the fringe stays together. Fray check will not adhere fabric or yarn together.

I have never glued yarn ends in place, however I have used Liquid Thread for quick mending projects such as for hems that come out when you are in a hurry. It dries clear, is flexible, and launders without washing out. I bought mine at Hancock Fabrics, but I would think that any fabric store would have it. Mine came in a 4 ounce bottle with a fine tip applicator.

I crocheted an American flag aghan for my dad, and would love to glue on the 50 stars, rather than sewing them on. Anybody know if Fabric-Tac will work on a project like that?
