Apologies if this is in the wrong place, it's not something I normally ask about.

I'm going to a fancy dress party later and for my costume I want to stick some white fabric (cut from a cheap T-shirt) onto a red hoodie. But I don't want to ruin the hoodie.

At the moment I've done it with sellotape and it seems to hold ok, but not brilliantly, plus it looks a bit of a mess. It will do if I can't find a better solution.

Anyone know a decent, easy way to do this?

Hand stitch it on then you can just undo the stitches when you're done.

Well I was hoping for some sort of adhesive because I doubt I can sew I did it at school but that was over a decade ago now.

Also, I don't have a sewing kit. But then again I'd have to go out and buy some glue/tape or whatever anyway.

I second the sewing idea. You only need a needle and thread, and you don't need to be good at it or know any particular technique! Just make it up as you go along, that's what I do. In and out, simple! Don't use white thread on a white patch of cloth - go for a slightly darker shade like light blue so that you can easily find the stitches afterwards to pull them out.

Thanks, that's probably what I'll do next time. Unfortunately I left it too late this time, I just went out with it stuck on with tape

It held up the entire night, just about. I looked like a complete ****, but I was dressed up as a power ranger, so that's to be expected.
