Default how/what do u use to attach centers to bows

I've just started making bows and have been experimenting with different ways to attach the "knot" or ribbon middle to the bows. I've tried hot glue, fabric hot glue, liquid stitch, and even tried to sew one on. I keep thinking there has got to be a better way.
So I'm curious, what do you use? Or how do you do it?

Definitely hot glue. I have no patience for fabri-tac plus when my daughter put the bows made with fabri-tac in her mouth they fall apart! I use hot glue for everything. Just put a dab so it doesn't ooze out.

Hot glue is what works best for me. I have learned just a dab will do.

So, hot glue it is. THANKS! I bought a cordless glue gun and LOVE it, but I think the cheap mini glue gun might have worked better. (Shh, don't let dh hear that!) It seemed like I could get a smaller amount with the mini, but wish I could find a mini one that's cordless now.

I'm in southwest la. Near Lake Charles. My dd is Olivia Ann. I think Olivia Grace is a beautiful name and she's a beautiful baby. I know you're having fun making things for her.
