Default Re: Cheer Bow Assistance Please!

1) I measure what I need for the bow, so if I am using x amount of length and 1.5" width, I measure it out at about 1 and 3/4 inch heat and bond.....I then peel one side of the heat and bond and iron that on the back of the SHINY material so it is ironing board, shinny, heat and bond....

2) THEN cut the shiny fabric to 1/8 of an inch shorter than my base ribbon........I DO NOT CUT THE SHINY FABRIC FIRST b.c it tends to FRAY, so then I cut the shiny fabric

3) peel the other side of the backing and position it on the ribbon, then it is ironing board, ribbon, shiny material that has the heat and bond on the back

NOW........to do that, I iron a small portion at a time so that I can position it in the middle of the base ribbon and it wont sleep as I go........again, this is how I HANDLE it, others might do it differently, I am actually working on a tutorial, so look for it to come in a couple of weeks
