Default Re: How do you attach clips to cotton beanies

Yes, as someone already said... hand sew a tiny strip of ribbon vertically where you want the flower/clip placed on the hat. I do this on my military hats and it works great!

I find that using a pin often causes the flower to droop and fall. Attaching the flower to a clip and then to the hat is more sturdy.

Yes and used it too! It worked great for regular cotton fabric, just not on the thick stretchy hats.
I think I am going to just give it up and sew on a piece of fabric until I can figure it out. I have had the hats for 2 months now, so I need to get something going on them. LOL

Thanks for the info!

Oh, so good to know, because I was thinking of getting the pin backs for the military styles!

NOW if I could just figure out, how to put a clip on the curly ostrich puffs, I would be good to go!
