Default Cheer Bows

First of all, I can't sew anything more than a few stitches by hand. Secondly, I have sequin fabric and ribbon and want to layer them and put them on a hair ribbon for my dd that is trying out for cheer but have no idea how to do it. I have the fusion tape and fabri tac if either of those is the way to go.
I would really appreciate ANY help or guidance... how long to cut the ribbon to how to make 1 lonely cheer ribbon Thanks ladies... should have thought ahead and just bought one, but I waited too late.

I can make you one!
By fusion tape do you mean heat n bond? That's what you need to use to attach the sequin fabric to ribbon. Most people use the heat n bond lite so it doesn't get too stiff. The length of ribbon you need really just depends on how big you want the bow to be, how long you want the tails, etc. You can take a long piece of ribbon and fold one to the size you want, mark the spot if you need to and then undo it and measure how much ribbon you used. Somewhere between 20" and 30" should be good for a standard 2-loop cheer bow

I wish! Try outs start in the morning That's why I was gonna try one myself. If she makes it, they order TONS for the whole year but I wanted her to have a cute one for try outs so she might stand out a little I may try one tonight. Thanks for your help!!!!

Okay...maybe this will help.

NoBowNoGo has great directions for cheer bows. They are reasonably priced and you get an electronic copy right away.

If your question is about sequin only and you already know how to contruct the bow, I can and will help you out with that. I'll PM you shortly.
