More than Knots Hold Things Together

I've been asked about how I attach knots to my hair barrettes. The knots are actually knotted onto the barrette and then held in place so it doesn't slide up and down the barrette with a really strong epoxy glue.

The epoxy glue used is a two parter especially mixed for things like glass and metal. It's the stuff that can hold a plate together if it's been shattered so holding a fabric knot in place on a metal barrette should be a breeze for it! :-)

The peeps at Bostik have a factsheet on their epoxy bond for any other hobbyists/handmade enthusiasts considering giving this glue a go.
