Stiff is a good thing when it comes to cheer bows. It helps them hold their shape.

I second the stiff cheer bow. When being used for competition purposes most squads want their bows stiff.

If your friend does not want the bows to be too stiff, I would suggest using E6000 glue to put the ribbons together. It is really stinky, but holds great without the stiffness.

If using a light colored base ribbon, I would suggest the heat n bond. E6000 does bleed through light colored ribbon and makes the back of your bow look like a greasy line going down the center of your base ribbon.

Another option is to use heat in bond on the loopy parts of your bow but leave the tails floppy. It's not my preference, but I know a cheer bow website who sells their bows that way.

My squads are not competition squads. This is what I do.

I use Heat and Bond LITE (yes there is a difference!!!)

I fuse the HNB to the fabric then cut into strips to match the ribbon, iron onto the ribbon.

Then this is what I do because my squads like the tails "free", I cut strips of heat and bond where the loops are. So for a bow with ribbon that is 28 inches long, leave 7 inches on each side where the tails are and only do the heat and bond in the center (14 inches) and fuse the layers together.

Then fold the bow. The loops are together and firm but the tails are free to flop as the girls jump and cheer. I have 10 schools that I do right now and they all prefer it this way. I always have samples of both styles so the teams choose their preference. I'm getting ready to make some cheer samples for a meeting I have this weekend. If this is too confusing I can try to take some pictures.

stitch witch is a fabric "tape" that bonds like sewing would without the sewing involved. You put it between the two items you want fused and then iron it.
