Default Big bows

Up until recently I have just been playing around with the animal clippies. I wanted to try and venture into those big boutique/loopy/etc Bows...

Now I have tried a couple recently and think these are so huge for the little aligator clippie.

I also started to wonder, when you can't see the clips, do people still line the alligator/french clips?

Hi, when I finally make a big stacked bow for my grandaughter I put it on an alligator clip. Well the bow was too heavy for the clip, it would not stay in her hair, so she has never worn it again. For the big bows do we put them on a french clip?

That's what I was kind of experiencing too. I went and placed an order yesterday for some french clips. I sent a big bow on the alligator clip to my friend's daughter and she should receive it today. I guess we'll see what her outcome is.

I've made hundreds of bows with French barrettes and have never lined a single one. I've never had a customer complain or mention it either.

I always line my alligator clips. I've thought about giving it up since I'm not sure if it really makes a difference. However, I've not been brave enough to take that plunge.

Lining FRENCH clips...I think most folks don't line those.

I think big, honkin' bows do need to go on French clips. There is a limit to what an alligator clip can hold.
