Default Re: interchangeable bows on shoes

Hey Joan.... I have seen bows on shoes with shoe strings. It looked like they took anywhere from 1-1 1/2" long of 3/8" ribbon or I guess any size you want and wrap it around the center of your bow to make a loop. Then take the two ends of the loop and melt/fuse them together using your soldering iron. Then slip the shoe string through it on the bottom where the lace goes straight across the shoe. I haven't done this before and don'tk now if the bow would flop - you may have to adjust the length of the ribbon. Another draw back would be that you would have to unlace your shoes to change out the bows. I'm wonderingif instead of soldering the ribbon you could attach velcro to the loop?
