Thank you all so much for your replies!
I like the idea of using cheap ribbon.. I don't know why I didn't think about that. I have so many test runs from bows I've attempted. I have my good bows and then there's my "bows" ..
I love that youtube video. In fact, it was the only one I could understand when I learned how to freehand.
Ronnie - Thank you so much! I am looking forward to trying it out today! Quick question, when you use a regular iron on low, do I need to protect my ribbon? I've heard of some saying they will put a towel over it.. but I would imagine using it on low wouldn't damage. Just checking.
Mommylikesbows - Do you recommend Fabri-Tac? I've heard conflicting stories.. I don't like the bulky look or the ribbon glued together look.. but I've also seen a few people on this forum say that they use it. They Xyron had rave reviews, and I do like it, but maybe my adhesive is wrong.
I like the idea of double-sided tape in between stitches, but I'll have to play with that..
Again, thank you all so much!
