I am selling bowsso I need to make sure no ribbon will be able to be pulled out. Any help would be so appreciated!!! Step by step, what do you do???

ok not sure if this is what you mean by bring thread around but if you mean you threaded it once or twice then wrapped the thread around the bow, thats probably why. Don't do that, thread it through about 6 or 8 times for durability, then i stitch through the center top or bottom doesn't matter, over and over int he same spot just knotting it with the already threaded section. Then I dab a small drop of hot glue on it. There ya go and you don't lose any. If you wrap it around it tends to bend and pull them away.
