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

I've been wondering because when it comes to doing 3 layer bows esp with sequins my bow becomes stiff to the point where it just looks odd. I've heard that iron on vinyl makes it more flexible but I'm not sure if I'm ready to stray away from heat and bond lite and experiement with it. If anyone has any experience with it though, please tell me how it goes! Tryout seasons are coming up
What i do is iron the ribbon directly to the wrong side of the sequined fabric. Once that cools, I cut around the ribbon that is bonded to the fabric. Both layers stay together. Hope that makes better sense.
