| | Re: Alligator Clips - Lined or not?
I partially line mine but different for different bows. A basic bow I only line the clip part for a more complete look. I run the clip through where I tie the bow and if I line it, it tends to be difficult to get it through the thread or wire. (I hope this makes sense!!)
For all other bows I partially line it so that when I glue the bow on the glue does not go through the clip.
I've had some moms say lining the top helps with grip. I've heard mostly that lining top and bottom makes it slide out easily. I think that part is a matter of opinion but I have had moms compliment the fact that my clips are lined. So I think it gives it a more professional finished look.
