One thing that I think I'm going to try for next time is...I used E-6000 and it sure did stink but I think I did something wrong because you can see where the glue was applied (perfectionist I know) and the outer edge of the layers are not glued down. I'm thinking if I use heat n bond lite; this will elimanate that. What do you think? I know you use E-6000 do you have any suggestions?
Unfortunately, when using light colored ribbon, E6000 shows through. I would go with your suggestion of HnB. Its a lot less headache.

I don't make a lot of plain layered grosgrain bows anymore. I normally make the fancier ones with sequins for Pop Warner, High School or competitions.

When I make gamebows for my little Mitey Mites, I only make one layer bows.
