Default Ribbon loop on crochet headband

I'm sure this question has been asked before but I can't seem to find a thread on it. Maybe I'm not putting in the right terms. Anyway, can anyone tell me the best way to wrap a piece of ribbon around the seam of a crochet headband for interchanging bows or flowers? Should I sew the ribbon or glue it? That seam bothers me sooo bad!

I just thought of another question too: I recently got some curly marabou puffs and I'm not sure how to attach them to an alligator clip. Should I line the clip and sew the feathers to it? Or should I use e-6000 and just glue that bad boy?

If anyone is willing to share their secrets it would be much appreciated. THANK YOU!

I use glue for the interchangeable loop on crochet headbands and for puffs I would line my clip and then glue the puff to the lined clip. HTH

so am I just brain dead I don't get why the ribbon is needed. I sale the headbands as is and just show them they can clip bows on the headband. I think I sell more this why becuause I sale them to teens and moms that are not going to be using bows.

Well I've been selling them like that too but I'm starting to think that it needs something to make it look more polished. I think the loop makes the headband look better even if you aren't gonna put anything on it.

I'd maybe make some with, some without.

I never could get crochet headbands to stay on J's head??

I would cut your ribbon to size, put a dot of hot glue on the bottom, put one end of ribbon on... let dry.. loop around, put dot of glue on already glued on end of ribbon, attatch other end, let dry. Wah lah! Ribbon loop! I did that to my non... ribbon looped headbands when J was little little.
