I am making a purse to match a cheongsam dress. The purse is the shape of an old-style take-out container (see this website http://www.stupid.com/stat/TAKE.html or type in “chinese take-out purse” and you’ll likely be able to find a photo). I plan to make the form out of bristol board, then apply the silk to it. What is the best type of glue for (very high-quality) silk? I doubt that white (craft glue) will work, as it will mar the fabric. I considered a glue stick, but they often apply unevenly and it may not hold over the long-term. Perhaps I should sew/serge the fabric to the edges of the cardboard? Apply interfacing to the fabric, then glue it on? Your thoughts will be appreciated. I have to do this correctly the first time, as the silk was a gift directly from Hong Kong, and I cannot order anymore.
– Many thanks
