Question Question before I start buying

I want to make the ladybug bows for my 9 month old. She has really fine hair. Can I use the alligator clips that I have seen the others here use or are there smaller ones that I can buy?

I second that. My DD did not have much hair (still does not), but the single prong alligator clips stay really well in her hair

your little girl is so cute! And lucky for you she has hair! Mine has a tiny bit so clips look kind of funny in her hair!

The alligator clips seem to work great (although my kids have never had a shortage of hair or a thin hair problem). You may also want to try lining the inside of the clip with something like shelf liner or craft foam paper.
