Hi guys.what type of glue is best for sticking stones etc to t shirts or jeans so they don't wash off when laundered? Answered

I am really into revamping my old clothes and have some really cute coloured stones ( they are usually used for the bottom of fish tanks!!) and I want to use them on the seams of my jeans.I have tried various glues but they all seem to come off when I wash them.Any ideas??

Unfortunatly, fish tank gravel is usually pretty brittle. Even if you found a good glue, pieces of them are still going to break off in the wash. Maybe you'll get better results if you coat them in some kind of sealant. If they're larger stones, get a dremel and drill a couple of small holes in each. Sew them on like buttons.
