Default Foe headbands...interchangeable or not?

Just curious which way your FOE headbands sell the best. When you do them interchangeable are they strong enough to hold the weight of a clip? Which one sells better for you? Thanks!

I make mine interchangeable, but I tend to use snap clips or mini alligator clips with them for less weight. I really like using the snap clips because they don't create a gap between the bow/flower and the headband.

I make some interchangable and some not. I was having a hard time with the FOE supporting big bows when I used 3/8 for my loop, so then I started using 5/8 or 7/8 and I haven't really had any problems since. HTH

Thanks. I am the same way with the big gap. I don't really like the gap. Attaching snap clips is a good idea. I did try that once, but I had a hard time getting my flower to stay attached to the clip because of how it bends when you open and close it. Any tips?

I rarely make mine interchangeable either, and when I do, I use a snap clip.

One other thing I was thinking. Do you put a "non slip grip" on the inside of the headband? It seems like it would come off easily. I haven't even made one to test on my kids yet! haha. I really need to. I am in a selling rut right now

Bump
I am having the same problem I feel like the bows and flowers are so floppy on the interchangable FOE headbands. But I'm afraid they wont sell well if they are not interchangable. If you sell them with bow or flower attached do you glue or sew them? And how do they sell?
Thanks
