Default Fusing ribbon together?

I have an order for several cheer bows and I'm making them 2 colors. I have always used Fabri-tac to glue the ribbons together. I made a sample bow and noticed that days after I made the bow, you could still see the line of fabri-tac through the ribbon. This has never happened before- its always dried clear!

Is there anything else I can do to fuse the 2 ribbons together where you can't see it coming through? it was a gold ribbon on top of navy ribbon.

I sew mine. You can use heat n bond as well though.

I use a small piece of heat and bond or run them through the sewing machine.

You can also use a wood burner to seal them together. It holds great.

Someone in the tip thread said they use their Zyron machine.

I have used Xyron and it works great...it just gets expensive b/c it takes close to a yard per bow!

I have also used a product made by thremo-web (the people who make heat n bond) It is sold in the same area as the HnB rolls but is an adhesive that come son a roll, and doesn't need to be heated. It is narrower than the HnB (which is why I bought it in the first place) and it is permanent. I have had really good luck with it!

Is this what you're describing?



Is it a bulky product? I have a stack of color guard flags to mend, and this sounds ideal... as long as it doesn't add too much weight to the patches. I'm not having much success with iron-on adhesive web... translation:

Thanks!

No, that isn't it. It comes in a roll, like tape. I can't find the package. It came from Hobby Lobby.

It is not bulky--I have even sewn through it when creasing bows. It is really, really sticky (in a helpful way!)

Hmm... maybe this, then? Same stuff, only on a roll:



They have other "tape" products, but they're really not meant for fabric... at least, I don't think so. I've been wrong before...once or twice.
