I agree with PP. Start a new thread and you will get more responses. If you don't know how - go to the main page (Hip Girl Boutique Free Hair Bow Instructions--Learn how to make hairbows and hair clips, FREE! - Powered by vBulletin
) then click on the subject. Yours would probably fall under "how to make...". Click on it. then at the top left there is a link that says, "new thread". Hope that helps.
I don't know for sure what mini alligator clips are. I only know of one size (I think it is 1 3/4" long). If you are making little bitty bows I would use 3/8" size. If your baby has no hair (or little hair) I would use an interchangeable headband and clip whatever you want on it. If you do want to make a bitty bow you can use a snap clip (is this what you are talking about??). They hold very well and are cute on babies. Here is a link on how to line them: How To Make Boutique Hair Bow--4--Lining Hair Clips : Hip Girl Boutique!, Hair Bows, Baby Hair Clips, Rockabilly Hair Accessories and more.
Then you can just glue your bow on top. Is this the kind of bow you want to make?
