Heres the problem...

I am ironing the heat n bond to my ribbon then ironing the ribbon to the sequins spandex or mystique spandex, that always worked for me...

Then recently I have been adding designs and logos with heat transfer vinyl. That is when the problem started... when I iron the logo or word to the spandex the fabric completely starts coming off the grosgrain ribbon!?

Am I doing somehting wrong?? and feedback or suggestions
I had experienced the same problem. I learned not to iron down the fabric as much. The fabric and ribbon are separating because it being over heated.

Another tip, I have used the Pellon Wunder Under. I have had no issues at all. It's more of a web than a glue if that makes sense.
