I just hold it open. I haven't ever had a problem. As for the stop the ribbon from the partially lined clip comes around the end and holds it in place after you go around underneath the clip. I hope that that makes sense

I make them on both -- I use a double-prong clip with a center hole so you can insert something in the hole to keep it open. My hands would hurt too much if I had to keep it open with my other hand the whole time!

I was able to open it. It took me to the 43rd post, which is basically a mini tut without pics. See a copy/paste below:

You have to do more work to get it onto the clip bc the clip is wanting to shut so you have to keep it open AND put the loops on at the same time. Its not too hard though. hth...."

"sorry i am just now responding to you...i just saw this. I sew through the middle of the clip. I tie my 3 strands of embroidery thread to the clip by going around through the center...the space that is open. Am I making sense? I always glue a strip of ribbon onto my sewing to enforce the thread. Its very secure that way. If i get time ill take some pics. "
