I like mine in the same position that you have yours in. I noticed that when the baby pulls out her bow she yanks to the side. It is much harder to pull out if you slide the clip into the top.

That's what I was thinking. I don't understand why i didn't think of doing these things when my girls were tiny

Do you think that I should also offer the crochet ones and the crochet headbands, even though i don't make them? How about bowbands made with the same material that I use now, but with ribbbon rings to hold a bow? This is mainly going to be for holiday time, so i will gear towards winter and the holidays

You definitely should make interchangable bowbands for your show. I must say that now that I have your beanies I prefer them over the crochet because not everyone has them. But it would probably be a good idea to have a variety to match different styles. I'm getting rid of some old stuff I have to place another order with you. Hopefully this coming week. The example you used is great. I wanted to get that print from you and had no idea what I could use for the clippy. I think rainbow korkers would go beautifully.

Awesome, Monique I am glad that we have some new ideas! I'll tell ya....I got out of the bow biz a long time ago, but I think that this would be fun to do at craft shows. I'm not sure I will go all out and make my own bows again! It is so time consuming, and I gotta tell you, I respect all of you girls that make so many of them! I suppose I will have to buy some already made? I think that people do buys all the time for pre-made bows, don't they? The flowers, feathers and marabou I could do myself.

So...do the bowbands and the hats in my materials, and skip the crocheted kufi ones and stuff? I mean they aren't very expensive, right?

Oh Cute! I may have to order some. How much is shipping and how long does it take to be shipped? Thanks!

The available prints are already in my shop (PinkMarshmallow on Etsy - Custom Stretch Creations).

How do you all attach the flowers to the hats tho? I was thinking of having a 'hat bar'...where you choose a hat, choose a flower so it is all custom made on the spot and offers lots of choices. This would work if all the flowers/embellihsments are on pins. Is that what you all use?

Hi Stacey

For a dozen, they take about 3-4 business days to work on and then I ship them via priority mail for $5.00. Not a bad deal, if I do say so myself..LOL...

I love your hats and plan on placing an order

Have you considered making two parrallel button holes to hold the alligator clip? You can just thread the clip through the holes.
