Default Re: I Hate Heat N' Bond!

Fabritac is permanent (or so it says on the bottle) & washable after 24 hrs. Its designed for bonding fabric. I've used it for layering grosgrain, but IDK if it would work for the sequins???. When trying to use it to line a clip, the grosgrain peels up when pulled. Perhaps its because its a fabric to metal bond? Lots of people use it to line clips, but tack the ends with hot glue. It is not lumpy like hot glue is.

I'm so tempted to go to wally world tomorrow just to see if it works!

I have used it for a long time and unless you are bonding fabric to fabric it is not good. Covering clips using it won't hold, for very long anyway. It has to be fabric to fabric.
For applying sequins I would use Jewel-It. It is good for applying any kind of embellishments to ribbon or anything else for that matter.
Here is a link to the product page with info.
Aleenes Jewel It Embellishing Glue 2 OZ. $2.22 each / 3 for $1.50 ea.

Is Jewel-it better than Gem-tac?

Normally, I use the lite heat n bond in the first layer. After that, as long as the ribbon is not white or light in color, I use E6000. Sure makes the bows stink for a while, but it's the best I have been able to come up with.

I've asked about the sealah tape, but have not had a definate response as of yet. Plus, at $3.50 for 5 yards, seems that it would be expensive to use on a squad of cheer bows.

I think that I am going to try a thin strip of the iron-on vinyl on the first layer of grosgrain then use the E6000 to see if I can control the bleeding of the glue through the ribbon. Almost makes it look like grease spots. That may be tonights project.
