Hi! Forgive my newness, but I am in dire straits.

I'm trying to make a headband with Crepon Sheer fabric (not stretchy) using white fabric as my top piece. I'm trying to glue this to fabric and it keeps showing through. I've slightly burned the edges so the edges curl upward and I've sprayed the fabric it make it a little stiffer (with glitter spray paint).
Hot glue bleeds through even when lightly pressed and I've researched fabric glue and fusible web tape, but before I ruin another attempt, I wanted to see if anyone had any ideas?  Cheesy

I've used Aleen's brand Fabric Fusion, which worked well on one of my projects, and dries clear.  I've never used it on sheer fabrics, though... All I can suggest is that if you try Fabric Tack or Fabric Fusion to test it out on scraps before you commit to a whole project.  Maybe use dots of glue instead of lines... I also wouldn't use an iron on any of these adhesives. Good luck!

The dots are a good idea! I might be able to cover those up even if they do show through.

You could use sequins or something like that to cover up dots of glue. :
