Live With Sara - Glue, Crochet Along and Yarn Give Away | Posh Pooch Designs

Live With Sara - 
With Sara Sach 

See The Video On my Youtube Crochet
Channel At This LINK



Today's Topics:
1. Can I use Glue on Crochet items?

There are times when we may want to use glue.
Maybe for an applique, or for a pompom.
Or.... Even on a knot.
In That case I recommend Fabric Glue.
There are several Brands that work.
A Brand I use is Aleene's
Can be purchased From Hobby Lobby, Walmart,
 Joann's and Michael's. 
 Any where Fabrics and Crafts are sold.


I do not recommend
 Hot Glue, but that is
 just my
 preference.
It can burn
 Acrylic yarn, 
and melt
 in the heat.


2. Fall Crochet

Hot Cup of Coffee or
Chocolate
