Either attaching the flower to an alligator clip to make it detachable or sew it onto the hat or headband.

I prefer the alligator clip method to give options.

Don't you worry about the alligator clip irritating the babies head (or poking??) ..or am I just paranoid...
Do you cover the clip in ribbon?

Nobody has complained to me.

Some also use ribbon to make a loop through the holes or wrap around the headband and slide the clip through that. I use that method if someone requests it. Do a search and you can find some pics.

For babies I hot glue the flowers directly to the hat, for older kids I do hot glue the flowers to lined alligator clips.

All of my daughters bows are on alligator clips. I slip them into the crochet hats/headbands through only one or two loops, then bring it back through the top so that the clip only touches her head a little bit. She never fusses or has a problem at all.

As a parent of a hairless baby, I need to use headbands and hats. When looking at purchasing these (as I did before I decided to make my own) I preferred the option of having the removable clip. JMHO

Do you find they stay attached this way? I have been hand sewing mine and it takes forever. Would love to glue them, but I have been afraid they might come off.

So do you just leave the excess ribbon haning? And are you glueing the flower to the ribbon? Does is stay?

Thanks!

yup, I ship the kufis with the ribbon hanging, that way the customers can adjust it acc to the size of the toddler head and tie them.
Ask your customers what they prefer. For older kids you dont have to adjust, just weave and glue the ribbon ends together.

I use hotglue for the flower, it seems to stay well
