Default Funky loopy Bow question

So, last night I tried my first one, and I have a question about adding the fillers. After I added them, they really didn't seem secure...like if you yanked hard on them they would come out.
Either I didn't wrap tightly enough(but I was worried about breaking the thread), or are you supposed to go up through the center of the fillers with a needle before adding? Thanks

You just have to wrap tightly. My hands are sore after making these, they're a lot of work! I use upholstery thread when I make them. HTH!

I have found that you have to wrap very tight and use lots of thread.
