Default Re: How to sew itty bitty bow center

Oh! Do you mean before the center knot goes on? If so this is what I do: I use the gator bite to hold my bow and tie it first with dental floss knotting on the bottom of the bow. Then, I take it off the gator bite and push the needle through the bottom (near the dental floss knot) through to the top, and then I wrap it around the center a few times (2-3 times), pulling tight as I go. I then use a tiny dab of hot glue to kind of "knot" my thread (on the underside of the bow) and keep it from unraveling. When that dries I cut all my loose ends from the dental floss and the regular thread. At that point I glue the bow to my lined clip and add the center knot. Hope that helps! I could try to do some pics of these steps the next time I make a bitty bow. But let me know first if you need them. Lauren

PS I find that these bows are so small that it is better to tie them first and then sew them.
