-Hm.. Well, I am not sure, but if you have a spare piece of fabric and a spare stud, do a test run on that to see if it works.

I have never experimented with Superglue and studs, but I know it didn't work when I was trying an emergency fix on a pair of wings (feathers to fabric).

Personally, for sticking gems, studs and other things to fabric, I prefer E6000. You should be able to find it at any craft store and most Wal-Marts in the craft section.

Super glue can be extremely damaging, I got a small dot on some jeans a while back and after about a month it started to crack...and then created a hole which just grew and grew. (cause jeans rip so easily once theres a hole....oops.)

Either look in to a fabric or craft glue, or hotglue.

Check out Fabri-Tac or E6000. Neither are that expensive and are able to be used on fabrics safely.
PM me for more details!

Please don't use superglue on fabric, use Fabric glue. Fabric glue is made to be washed or dry cleaned and won't damage fabric!
It's made to attach fabric pieces together or things to fabric. I've used it a few times and have had no issues with Fabric Glue.

A lot of glues will have a detailed of list of materials they'll hold together on the back of the packaging. Before using any glue on anything, check if the manufacturer says it's okay to use for those materials. If the manufacturer say no, don't mess with it.

I will also endorse Fabri-Tac and E6000. Both are fantastic products!

I will say that E6000 is a bit more on the heavy-duty side. I like using Fabri-Tac for more delicate items. I'd recommend getting the E6000 combo pack that includes a glue tip - it will help a lot when gluing small items like studs.

Don't add superglue to cotton. Ever. It can release toxic fumes, and with enough superglue, spontaneously combust: http://www.metacafe.com/watch/613004...ustion_how_to/

Fabric tends to absorb superglue rather quicky so it won't stick properly anyway :/
And as others have already said,it will damage the fabric.
