Default Re: heat n bond lite vs. iron on vinyl

My personal preference is the heat n bond. I normally fuse heat n bond to ribbon of the same color sequined fabric I plan to use then iron the ribbon to the fabric. After that I use a rotary cutter to cut the ribbon out. It always has worked well for me that way.

Most squads I have made bows for prefer to have their bows stiff. However, I too have heard about usuing the iron-on vinyl, but have never tried it. I have only used that for interiors on shoe bags for my daughters cheer shoes.

Sorry I cannot be of more help.
