Practice, Practice, Practice. Do it several times and you should be able to get the idea of how to do it. It is a fairly simple bow. Study each step, if you need to use a sally clip, use one. Some people will use alli clips to hold the bow in place.

It's really pretty easy after you do it once. I don't measure my ribbon. I just make it and cut theribbon when I am done. It takes a lot of trials and tribulations. I have attached one of mine. I love these bows!!

I always make these with my Gator Bite and before I got that, it was my Sally's clip. Pull HARD and tie tight (I obviously don't sew mine) ~ that is what works best for me.

Good luck!!!

Thanks!! I call it a slide barrett! Not sure the true name of it. I normally pull my girls hair up and then attach the barrett right above that. It stays in better that way for us.

I love those slide barrettes. How are you able to get the bow to secure on it?
