Re: 2 1/4 Cheer Bow Help

I normally make a cheer bow using 28" of 3" ribbon. You may want to try and reduce the length of your ribbon to 26". Make your ribbon marks at 6", 13" and 20". When forming your bow, I would try...

Re: Help! Cracked ice or Glitter Vinyl?

I believe you're looking at glitter vinyl on cracked ice fabric. Zooming in on the bow, I do not see a white layer like the cracked ice has. It looks to be a consistent fuchsia all the way to...

Re: chevron silhoutte cut file

Re: chevron silhoutte cut file

What are you trying to do? A single chevron or a pattern? So you use a silhouette cameo or vinyl cutter? I did use this one not too long ago.

Re: Yella back in the bow business?

I think you're right about new ownership. The bows don't have the same look as they did when Nancy made them. They're still pretty, but not quite as over the top as the original yet. And Nancy never...

Re: 3 in chevron ribbon

I haven't seen 3" ribbon in chevron. Best suggestion I can offer is spandex fabric fused to ribbon. Sorry.

Re: Cheer Bow How to

I agree with Kimberly 100%. Not only will sewing take more time, and will not stop the fraying of the fabric, you will probably have to iron the ribbon afterwards. Sewing to grosgrain ribbon tends...

Re: Outlining Words on Silhouette

The offset button is located under object. All you need to do is make sure the box around your original picture or word is highlighted, click, object then click offset. Easy as that!

Good Luck!
