Sequin fabric
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi again, it's been quite sometime since I've been here, but I have another question for you lovelys!
I am getting ready to make 96 bows similar to this one. What am I going to use to bond the fabric to the ribbon? It's not sequin dot fabric, it's actual sequins!! It tells me not to use an iron on this fabric so what is a good alternative to heat and bond?
TIA!!!

I use heat n bond and iron from the backside of the grosgrain.

Does it sew the sequins firstly onto the ribbon and cut it into pieces?

Not sure what you are asking. The sequins come sewn on fabric. The heat n bond adheres the sequin fabric to the ribbon. I personally lay my sequin upside down. Put a sheet of heat n bond on top and iron from the underside then I cut it into my strips. I now have a heat press so I then lay the ribbon with the sequin on top in the press and cover with a piece of the paper from the heat and bond. It adheres the sequins and doesnt melt them.

Thanks. I understand how to do after reading the words. Thank you for sharing your experience.
