Default 1st Gymnastics order! What's the best way to attach a pony-o?

I have my first gymnastics team order and would love any advice or suggestions. These are young girls and I don't believe they are very competitive. The studio owner has contacted me and asked me to make their bows and I want to do the best job I can. What style is usually worn for gymnastics? Is it usually the same as cheer? She said she likes a double stacked pinwheel, but I want to be sure to keep it standard. I usually make OTT bows so I am really out of my element. What is the best way to apply the ponytail holder/pony-o? TIA!

Oops, almost forgot, I had talked with her about adding a button to the center of the bows with her studio logo and the girls names. Do you think that will get points taken off? They are the buttons used by a button maker with a bottle cap image. They are about an inch around.

I don't do a lot of Pony-o's, but I usually sew a few stitches around the pony-o and attach it to the bow. Don't sew through the pony-o, it makes the elastic weak and more likely to break. Then I attach a felt circle with glue. HTH

I would be afraid to add anything hard to the bows incase they hit their heads when rolling or flipping.
I have made a few pony o streamers for my girls. I like to wrap all the layers together (including the pony o) and then add a strip of ribbon to hide the thread.
Congrats and good luck!

i make a few stiches to attach the pony tail holder to the bow, then add the center to the bow to hide the sewing.

I would also leave the flatback off. You could always make the logo on a pin and they could pin it on the center when they weren't tumbling.

Our gymnastics gym actually has a sign up that says no big bows, so I would make up a sample to show her exactly the style and size and have her approve it.
