Default Cheer bows material?

Is it possible to fuse satin to grosgrain ribbon to make cheer bows?
I know I can just buy satin ribbon, but I dont think it comes in bigger sizes.

Silk? I suppose you could but wouldn't it fray? I use satin ribbon (single face) sometimes which I really like. I have gotten some in 2 1/4"

Haha. Oops. I ment satin. It would fray once I heat seal it.

You can just try it. If you can get the edges to look clean and not fray, I don't see much of a difference between that and the satin ribbon.
Also, I saw this site in the group buy area and they have 3" satin ribbon, not sure if it is the right kind but they do have all the same sizes as standard grosgrain. It's cheap here too. Comes in a 50 yd roll at $0.38 per yd so $19 for 50 yds of 3" satin. ($17.10 if total order is over $200) I might be interested if you'd want to split.

There are a few places to purchase satin ribbon that I have found that sell quality ribbon and reasonable in price. I have found 3" satin in a few colors at www.artisticribbon.com. Their color selection for 3" is very limited, however, they seem to have about every color under the sun in 1 1/2". At Dunwoody Booth ( http://dbpwholesaleribbons.com/p-22-...in-ribbon.aspx ), they offer a wide array of colors up to 2 1/4". Here again, their prices are good, the ribbon is nice and shipping is super fast.

I don't know about fusing satin to grosgrain. I have never tried it. If you still have to fuse it after checking out the sites I provided, let me know what you used and how it came out.

Good luck! Hope the above helps you out!

Ann

Could you not try to fuse it the the heat bond lite first like you do the sequin fabric? Then fuse it to the grossgrain? Haven't tried it...just thinking out loud

I think Im going to try to fuse it to grosgrain, since it will most likely be too floppy without it. Ill post here when Im able to get it done, but I dont know when that will be.

Yes it does work to fuse it to grosgrain just like you do with sequins, although it is a little thicker. For a standard bow, yes it would be floppy to use just the satin but there may be people who like their bows like that. I have also seen people just take a piece of satin ribbon (usually the double faced kind) and just tie it in a bow into the ponytail.
