Default Confused!

So I had an order placed by a boutique I am working with now and she requested that the clippies that I use are lined with velvet so that they stick in the hair better and that they are softer for the little bitty babies.

No problem.....right? Wrong! I went to both Joann's Fabric and Michael's today searching for velvet ribbon. I found 1/4" and 5/8". I bought both because at the time I didn't know what would look best. Well when I got home I saw a big problem.

The 1/4" doesn't cover the entire clippie. It covers the smaller part at the bottom but at the top where it's biggest it doesn't cover it. The 5/8" is just all around big. It makes the clippie look really big and weird.

So my question is what size velvet ribbon do you ladies line your clippies with?

Do you find it works better to line them completely with the velvet or just line them with regular ribbon and then put the velvet between the two clips where the hair will be?

HELP!

Well crud! I bought the wrong size. Do you happen to know if Hobby Lobby sells 3/8? I couldn't find it at the other stores and HL is closed on Sunday.

I have only ever seen 7/8 at hobby lobby.

I get my 3/8" from UB, but I have never used it to line clips with.

It is $5.30 (I think) for 25 yards from UB. Minimum purchase is $50 though.

Ugh! Well I guess I am going to have to buy a lot of it to get what I need if there is a min. I might see if anyone is destashing any and if not I will head to UB. Thanks ladies!

If you need small quantities, Michael's carries it in limited colors-or at least it was there in December. HTH

I don't know if it's just my Michael's or if they just didn't feel like looking, because I asked them today and they said they didn't carry any.

Hobby Lobby has them, but only a couple colors.
And they were doing 50% off their ribbon up to yesterday. I don't know about this week though.
