Default Re: how to use alligator clips

If you use a 5/8 ribbon for your center knot it will lie just as nicely as 3/8. If I use any bigger for the center knot, I glue it to the clips after the knot is glued down. It's not as nice but, I have never had one come apart. Most of my customers want alligator clips, so you do whatcha gotta do!!

I sew my bows together and then hot glue them to the clip. Then I hot glue the center knot as well. I never use any wider than 5/8" ribbon for the center knot and have never had a problem with them being too thick inside the clip. I also have never had one come apart. In fact I made a mistake once and had to take a bow apart myself. I just about ruined the bow taking it apart, because the glue held so well.

I also do like samsmombeth and do not completely line the clip until after I have wrapped the center knot. I do it that way because it looks neater and also because I apply my non slip to the lined clip before I attach the bow.

Do you all actually line the part that goes through the child's hair?

I line the clips and glue the bows to the lined clips. My girls are still wearing bows I made two years ago.
