Default Re: College Cheer Bows...HELP!

Thank you for such a helpful post! I made one the other night to test it out. I used 1.5" in orange with a 7/8" heat bond strip of the blue sequin fabric. It came out great and the captain approved them, but wanted the larger 2.25" ribbon. So I ordered a 50 yard roll, I have to make around 30 bows.

Now that I am picturing your ideas, I might have to try those! I could not find the orange sequin fabric in my last trip to Jo-anns, I think it may have been moved because of Halloween.

I am really liking the two pics you sent me, but how do you heat n bond the whole ribbon? Do they make head n bond that large? I only saw the rolls in 5.8", 7/8" ect. I may be getting in over my head trying that, plus it would increase my cost to have to buy more ribbon and fabric.

For some reason I can't bring myself to purchase a tut, so far everything I have tried I have been successful at!
