i love the KISS technique! you're so right about first getting the implement that will fit the loop . . . finally found my insect itch pen fits the 2" . . . now to find s/thing for the other loop!

the thing i was attempting to avoid was the additional layering of the ends of the ribbon . . . cause i hate the side view when they're overlapped . . . maybe i'm just too picky (it's been said before haha).

For show bows I use bands you sew two to the back so when the first one breaks you can use the second one... Once your pet is trained to wear a topknot..bows last a long time.

A pet owner will usually choose barrettes over bands..because they are easier..I just don't like the look of a bow flat on a dogs head...because I love top knots
I use mini alligator clips with teeth when I use barrettes. But on the other hand because dogs chew and swallow things many people don't like barrettes because of the danger if they chew the bow.. HTH



OMG! Your dog is so cute! What breed is she?
