When I am working with satin ribbon-for t-shirts, I like liquid stitch. It makes it stiff and prevents fraying when I sew. I think it is $6 a tube. HTH

Thank you ladies for your help Thank you Norma for the offer....I have some Saleah tape.....does anyone know if I could use the tape on the ones I use with the white grosgrain ribbon on top of the double ruffle ribbon??? Would it stay on good enough and not be visible?

Definitely use the Sealah tape for that! I often pair two different ribbons together and I always use the Sealah to adhere them. I have done it on white ribbon too and it does not show thru. Plus the ribbon stays soft and flexible. I wouldn't use anything else! HTH

Can I chime in with a question about sealah tape? A while back there was a conversation about washing your bows. I am wondering if anyone has ever washed a bow on a clip that was attached with sealah tape? Did the sealah tape hold up with water?

In another thread someone said they had washed clothing that was hemmed with the tape and it stayed completely intact. I think that about sums it up for me!
