With rubber cement, let both felt and stock dry, just like contact cement.
We use these methods for industrial vacu-forming assist plugs (which must be covered with felt to avoid deformation of thermoplastic material when used on automated machines for production - whew!). These processes can get quite hot, and it works for hundreds of thousands of shots. Sorry for the overuse of nomenclature!
Anyway, these adhesives work for us.

Contact is what I use. Never a problem

Sorry it took this long to get back with a picture, but here are a couple. First is a keep sake box with a lift out tray. This one is something called velveteen.

Next are a couple of jewelry chests in felt.

Last is a very special box I made for security done with velvet.

Only the top was done using thin card board on the last photo. The bottom was glued to foam backing to make it more "bouncy" to touch. None of them had the fabric glued directly to the wood. All of them used the Tacky glue from Micheal's designed for fabric. I prefer that because of the fast drying time (about 45 seconds and its ready for the next stage).

Elemer's white glue will work but takes longer to set up.

If Woodworking is so much fun why isn't it called WoodFUNNING?

I've made a few videos
