I know I have a lot of questions, but don't know where else to turn for answers.

Also if you know of good suppliers for the sequin fabric/ribbon I'd greatly appreciate the info.

Thanks a bunch,
I have sequin fabric sitting in my laundry room calling my name. I'm too chicken to get it out and try!!! I even have the 2.25" grosgrain to make the cheer bows... I need to just do it this weekend...

I guess you use heat'n'bond lite to fuse it to ribbon,then trim??? I've heard that it does not fray once fused. Careful, though. Don't press the sequins directly with the iron. Put something in between the iron and the sequins. they'll melt!
