Default Re: Putting bows on pony-o's

For korkers: When I do mine I sew and I start with a 1" or so piece of flat coordinating ribbon color and then add the korked ribbon on top. then when I am sewing the korker together I go through all the layers and then wrap around the pony O and sew several times. Once I feel the korker is secure together and around the pony O I tie off and then take the 1" piece and wrap it and glue it around the pony O to finish it off pretty.

I hope that makes sense...in my mind it does...just not sure how it transfers to the written word. I only use the really thick pony o's now as it seems that the thinner ones stretch out much faster. HTH

That's how I do it too. I took a few pictures, but it's the same!

I take either the top or bottom curl stick a pony-o in it and then stick a dab of hot glue on the bottom of the pony-o then I stitch the curl around the pony-o. HTH

3B I love how you do that I don't make any pony o's on actual pony o elastics because they fall right out of Christine's hair. But I'm going to tuck this idea away for when she gets older.

Just a tip to the one who said their bands wear out fast...NEVER hold the hair up with a ponytail holder with a bow. Always secure the hair up in a separate (non bow) band first and then just put the one with a bow in tight enough to keep it in place. No need to wear out the rubber band trying to make it tight enough to hold hair.

That makes a lot of sense! Great tip!!!

Start with bow and other materials you need


hold pony o next to bow as shown


put one pony o end inside the loop of the other


and pull tight


put a dab of glue on the joining spot


cover the center of the bow as you would going THROUGH the hole in the pony o, I usually wrap it around a couple of times


Like such


and so


trim and heat seal or fray check


there she is on her back


And showing off her belly

Voila........I will try to get my MOVABLE way up too
This is the greatest idea I have ever seen. Thank you so much for sharing. I have been holding and stitching and getting frustrated. I cant wait to do another pony-o now.

Never thought about them stretching out. I will have to print something up to put on my pony-o's to give to customers when they buy them so they will know this as well. Thanks for the info!

Pony-O's attached to bows should never ever be used to hold hair in a pony tail. The job of the pony-O (that is attached to the bow) is ONLY to hold the bow to the hair, not to hold the hair in a ponytail. The pony will stretch out and be ruined, or break, or simply fall out or get pulled out of the hair, allowing the hair to fall out of the actual ponytail style. It's important to tell your customers to use a seperate ponytail holder to hold the hair in a ponytail/half ponytail/pigtail first, then apply the bow to the hair. If you do a search, I believe in the instructions area, there is something about Cheer Bow Care from gmcks that lays out care for bows with pony-o's that you could use as a jumping point. Not that I am recommending you copy by any means, but sort of like a template to use to create your own unique instructions to give to potential/existing customers. They are quite comprehensive, yet easy to read. Thanks again to Gmcks for sharing her instructions so we can all learn from them (to have an idea of how to make our own customer instructions: topics, wording, etc, of course!)
Additionally, when making cheerbows, one frequently uses the same floss, upholstery or heavy duty thread, etc., to wrap around (through) the pony-O that they use for tying the center of their bows, it is also common to sew a stitch or two or three through the actual rubber part of the band itself to ensure the pony-O stays attached to the bow. Using glue will not work too well, as the glue will frequently (not always) pull apart the (covering) center wrap, which allows the pony to fall off from pulling on the bow's pony-o to wrap around the ponytail.
HTH!
