Use heat n bond cut to the size of the ribbon you want. Iron the heat n bond on to the ribbon. Remove the paper from the heat n bond once cooled. Iron the ribbon, heat n bond side down to the wrong side of the sequined fabric. Once cooled, cut the ribbon away from the fabric using a rotary cutter. I have never had a problem with fraying when using this technique. HTH

It's the way that I have found works best for me. Also, when fusing the sequined fabric to the same or similar color grosgrain, it gives the sequins a much richer color and the bow more body. It's only my opinion though.

Glad I could help. It's what we're all here for!
