Default I have a dilemma...

Ok well I have started making fabric bows. I got my first one completely finished tonight apart from the clip.

Now I love a lined clip as much as the next person however the problem is that the middle section of the bow is just a smidge too narrow and you can see the side of the ribbon. Some people may not care about this but because I am so anal I really don't like the look. Should I just attach the bow straight onto the alli clip without lining it?

I only use single prong alli clips but maybe I will need some of those alli clips that are slightly curved with the little teeth??

Need your help!

I Use a solid color ribbon that matches the bow to line the clip.

Definitely line your clip, unlined clips look cheap.

Just pick a color that matches or coordinates with your bow.

And post some pics! :-)
