Default attach centers thru sewing not glue

Hi ladies! I was wondering if anyone could tell me the best way to sew your centers (resins, figure buttons, etc.) to your bows instead of using hot glue/E6000? I have seen some auctions on ebay where they sew their centers on and was just wondering how they are doing it?? I always worry that the center may fall off if just using glue!! Right now, that is all I know how to do!!

Please help!!

As long as they have a shank or a hole...just attach them to the ribbon that you would normally use for your knot...for example, take the 3/8 ribbon and it is just like sewing a button onto a shirt...just stitch it on and tie it off...done

I think Tonya had a post on this. Sew it onto a piece of ribbon and THEN wrap and glue the ribbon around the center as usual. I hope that makes sense, it is early and I have only had a couple sips of coffee. Gotta get my hipgirl fix in before going to work!

Yep, that's what I do, just like a simple bow center - it's just got the button sewn on first.

I think a lot of us have to get our hipgirl fix in the mornings.

Oh, don't get me wrong - I'll be around all day too! I about died Tuesday when we had internet issues from 8 until 5.

I'm already back for my 8:30 fix this morning, and I'm sure there will be a dozen more today, lol. That first morning fix is for the mind like what breakfast does for the body though. Breaking the Hipgirl 'fast' is definately necessary in the morning!

Seriously, if I had enough will-power to ground myself from the computer for a while, there's no telling what I would get done!

I am having a hard time lately getting on here. We've so busy at work and home, etc, just haven't had time and last night I was so tired, I just had to sit with my laptop and my hipgirls and veg out awhile.

You all have to stop making so many threads, lol! I can't get to them all and I like to read EVERYTHING, lol!
