I have the ones that have the seam on the inside of the headband, I thought I would need to cover that with ribbon so it wouldn't leave a mark on babies head. I tried hand sewing it & it just looked lumpy, I didn't like it. Then I tried using fabri-tac & it just wasn't tight enough to hold the clip securely ( it would flop around). Maybe I am not sewing it correctly???
