I would put a penny-sized piece of felt underneath to give the thread something to attach to. I'd be covering the entire bottom with a piece of felt, anyway, before attaching it to a clip.
The beauty of sewing is that if it doesn't work out, I can carefully undo it and switch over to glue!
sounds like a plan!
really, cutting an alli clip is easy - if you have the "real" button shank cutters . . . forgot to mention that i cut double alli clips (not the single) . . . just gotta remember to hold the end you're cutting off so it doesn't go flying!
