Default Sequin fabric for Cheer Bows

Hi all,

I've been searching the forum a while trying to see if anyone has shared how to use the sequin fabric for cheer bows. I get that you have to cut it to size, but am confused on how to seal it properly. Are there shared instructions anywhere that I've missed or is it something that is purchased?

Any help would be so much appreciated, because I may have to make about 150 bows using this fabric by December for a cheer group and I have never done this before.

Thanks all!

I have never done these myself so I am just passing on what I have seen in different discussions about this. I am pretty sure that most people iron the sequin on to the ribbon beneath it with something like stitch witch. Make sure you put a light towel over the sequins or they will pop off.
I think I have also seen somewhere that some people attach it to a clear vinyl or something of the sort. You can get it at JoAnn's.

Iron-On Vinyl. Iron the sequin fabric on Iron-On Vinyl and cut to size (your ribbon size). Highly suggest a rotary cutter to get a clean edges. The Iron-On Vinyl is what helps/keeps/prevents the sequins fabric from fraying.

There's also a paid instructions at TRR if you need the instructions. But if you do a Search in the forum, there's alot of tips that was discussed before on the How-Tos as well.

I have been wanting to try this too but have not gotten the courage. I get confused about fusing it to the part that is going to be sticky and then to the ribbon . I recently purchased the rotary cutter and the heat n bond. It says iron on adhesive so I bought that one but just noticed it says UltraHold. (Now I think I got the wrong one??) It sounds easy but I think I am making this a whole lot harder than it really is. Hopefully I will try it out soon.
