Default For all my Marabou people out there...

I've been working on these:

What I want to know is: What is the best way to make sure these stay on the felt?
I use hot glue and felt to make them into clips but I have a feeling that they are not going to stay on with vigorous movement. I found the Marabou on clearance for about $.25 a piece.
Any suggestions would help!
Thanks in advanced

I've never had an issue with them coming off the felt. My girls wear them on rubber bands during sports too. I just sew my ends together, and when I glue it to the felt I make sure the glue runs along the string and press down to the felt.

Awesome deal on the marabou! Very cute puffs :-)

I also haven't had a problem with them coming off. I try to pull the feathers forward so to make it look as full as possible on top then I glue the now 'flattened' part to the clippie.
