I would recommend you go on e Velcro site as they have all the different types there. I recently made a bedskirt for my daughter who has a sleep number bed with a plastic frame. I used and they make, I think it was called home dec Velcro, that has one side adhesive and one side non-adhesive. I put the adhesive side on the plastic (first wipe it with alcohol as the instructions said) and the non-adhesive side I sewed on the bedskirt. No problem.

I found it on the http://www.velcro.com/ website under fabrics. It is called Sew On Soft and Flexible. Amazon has it here: http://www.amazon.com/VELCRO-Brand-S...dp/B000YZ8UF8/

I use Velcro for my leaders on my quilt frame. I sewed the loop(soft) non-sticky back strip to the fabric leader and stuck the sticky back loop strip to my conduit pole (not the industrial stuff). The sticky back Velcro has been on my poodles since 2004, and I have had zero issues with it coming loose. But, that is on metal. I have not tried sticking it to wood.

Thank you for tracking this down. I see from the web site that Micheals stores have it so will check there. I will probably buy some even if I don't know what I will do with it! I see that they have one which sticks to one side and can be sewn to the other side. Where we want to stick fabric to wood or plastic. Who knew?

I am thinking the soft and flexible might be good for doll clothes.

For my walker caddies, I use the stick on Velcro, but squirt Elmer's Glue on first. They always hold.
