For the velvet, are you lininig the entire clip or just the underside? Sometimes I line the entire clip (I did that for holiday clippies) but I also use 1/4 velvet (so it won't show) to line just the undside of grosgrain-lined clips. When I line just the underside, it takes about 1 inch, so I don't have to buy very much and it lasts a long time.

THanks for the info Michelle! I lined the entire clip, but I think I will just line the underside from now on. Where do you buy velvet ribbon at a bargain?

I wanted to get the 1/4" to try also but you have to buy it wholesale from TRR. It wasn't cheap and it you want to get more than one color, it is a lot of money to tie up just in velvet. The 3/8" has worked well for me and you can buy it in smaller lots.

Hey MichelleB, do you know if either on of these (Velvet or no weave shelf liner) are machine washable?

TIA

I have never tried to wash either personally (my daughter isn't too hard on her clippies and I don't know what happens to the ones I sell).

The velvet is 100% nylon, which is washable, and glued on with Fabri-Tac, which I know from experience is machine washable... so I would say the combination is washable. Personally, I would hand wash myself if I had the need; I would be more concerned about a bow/embellishment being damaged in a machine than the velvet no-slip being washed off.

The shelf liner looks like it ought to be washable but I've been afraid it would disintegrate or peel off over time so I'd be less confident recommending washing that by machine or even by hand. Just my opinion, no experience to back it up.

Hope that helps

MichelleB

United Beads sells 1/4 velvet for $4.50 per 25 yard spool, that's what I'm using now. Since it doesn't show, I only have white and black (and I could get away with just white but I think it looks just a little better on the dark colors). You can get 900 one inch pieces out of a spool, more if you cut just under one inch. I also use some Offray 3/16" velvet which I got by mistake (I ordered 3/8 online and got this instead - so I got a refund but figured I may as well use it since I didn't have to return it) and it works just as well as 1/4". Otherwise, I think narrow velvet is hard to find - I've bought 3/8" velvet at Wal Mart and Michael's but haven't seen 1/4" at either place and the nearest Joann's is a half hour drive, so I can't tell you what they carry.

I know the last UB group buy just closed but you may plan to buy next time. I place orders with UB regularly (I will probably have to order again in a week or so) and would be happy to order for you - pm me if interested.

Hope this helps,

MichelleB

If anyone does a UB group buy, I'd be interested in the velvet ribbon!

I have read all the post. Everyone keeps saying they use fabri tac glue. How does that stick to the clip? i am assuming you would make your bow, line the top of the alligator clip with grosgrain and then FABRI TAC the velvet ribbon underneath to the top grosgrain layer? HELP???
