For these pieces I layered different fabrics and glued them to one another using fabric medium. Fabric medium is not a super strong adhesive, and I could pull the layers apart if I wanted to. I had previously tried this with watered down PVA, but thought the glue was too plastic-y, and I had a lot of trapped air bubbles which didn't look very good.
Here are my glued pieces. I think this adhesive worked great on cotton type fabrics, but the polyester sheer looks strange and plastic-y. The thick pink crocheted piece did not glue on at all. I plan to work on machine stitching and embroidering on these, but think they are a good start.
