Default HELP! Can I make my own ribbon from fabric?

Ok, This is my first post... Sorry if the answer is on here somewhere, I'm new!

I found fabric that I LOVE but I can't find it in ribbon. Can I cut the fabric into ribbon? Is there a trick or would it be useless? Thanks for any help!

Check out these posts, they are focused on bonding sequin fabric to ribbon, but it's pretty similar to "regular" fabric (just use heat n bond ultra if it's a cheer bow, other bows, I have no idea)
try these:

I'm sure there's more, search the posts and you'll find a bunch.
HTH!

I think it depends on what you want to do. Making a puffy fabric bow is super easy and the instructions are here somewhere. Basically you sew a rectangle of fabric on three sides. I'm not good at explaining, sorry.

Have you thought about experimenting by either sewing a long strip like a sash and ironing it super flat to be used like ribbon or maybe fusing 2 strips wrong sides together and sewing a decorative satin stitch on the sides or doing rolled hems on each side of a single thickness strip? Just a few ideas. I don't know if 2 layers would be too bulky or it would be worth the time to do rolled hems on each side of a 1.5 inch strip or something.

Let us know how it goes.

It depends on the type of fabric.

I did it! I made my own sequin ribbon today!!!! I was buying it pre-made from zainey and zoe cheer which is great if you need it fast or don't have time to make it or don't have a color, etc.... It came out great!

I got an order from Scotland for cheer bows!

I still need to figure out the Tic-Toc Bow.
