Default How do I do ribbon t-shirts with a bow?

Ok- I am ready to go make some ribbon t-shirts. I am all psyched up about it. I have t-shirts, I have ribbon, I have a sewing machine. Now I need to know one thing. How do I do it?
Seriously- I can sew a ribbon on it, but how do I hook the bow on? Is it sewn on or do you clip it? I'd like to clip it, but how would I do that? Any help and/or pictures would be great. Thanks in advance! Christa

Some add a button hole and then put the bows on alligator clips to attach to the shirt, other use the button pins (that you use for broaches) on the back of the bow and then just pin them on, and still others will actually sew it on.

There are pros and cons to each method, you just got to figure out what works for you and what you like best.

I sew mine on. It works for me. I always tell them to wash inside out on delicate cycle or handwash and then lay flat to dry.

That will show you some I have done, I do a simple bow and sew it on and never had issue even when I have used 5/8 or 7/8 ribbon

Thanks so much.

I either do the initials free hand or a make a template from a font I like on my computer......I have like 900 fonts

and them make a template, iron on the fusible webbing and then trace it backwards on the paper and cut it out then fuse it to the shirt and stitch away!!!
