This is EXACTLY what I do!! I use hot glue instead of sewing, but it is preference. Also, I line my alligator clips upside down so the bow/flower gets glued to the FLAT side of the clip. It doesn't hurt your head or anything with the "wrong" side down clipped on a headband or in your hair. For your last step, instead of the flower center, you can use buttons, brads, bottlecaps...etc.
