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!
As for the heat n bond they have a large sheet rolled up that you measure and cut with a rotary cutter, so you can get the exact size you want!
