Default Barrette Covers

I bought some of these from RABOM,
Ribbon And Bows Oh My!
tried to cover with some fabric but didn't really work out. Got the oval maybe I should have goten the rectangle one. Has anyone tried this yet? If so, how did you do it?

I have the rectangular ones and the 3/8 ribbon is just barely not wide enough to cover the metal. Metal peeks out on either side.

If you did the rectangular ones, couldn't you use 1 1/2 grosgrain? i see these embroidered on some sites.

I also tried this with the rectangle one. I tried to glue the fabric to the cover and it looked awful. What glue should I use? Any other suggestions on how to do this?

I have thought about making them like fabcric covered headbands with the spray adhesive it works great with the headbands.
