Default Cheer bow help

My sequins are coming off my sequin fabric. Is this supposed to happen? Help! It's the first one I have ever made.

How are you attaching the sequin fabric? If you are ironing the sequin (right side up) make sure you use a cloth over it. If you are ironing sequin side down, make sure your are ironing it on a clean surface. Free from hot glue, heat n bond, etc.

Do not touch the sequin while still hot. This could be the cause of your problem too.

HTH!

what she said! Plus make sure your iron isn't too hot!! I have a great pressing cloth I found at Joann's that's teflon so the heat and bond doesn't stick and it's been working great for the sequins! Also don't iron the sequins like you would a shirt, you must be gentle!
