Default Loop Bows

I don't know how to put a picture on here of the type of bow I am talking about. Some people call it a loopy bow, or funky loopy bow. You use several pieces of different ribbons and loop them and wrap them on a french clip. Somewhere I thought I saw some instructions on how to make this bow on an alligator clip but I can't find it for the life of me and I can't figure out how to make it for anything but the french clip.
The bows always sell great for me but a lot of women, including my daughter, say the french clips just don't stay in little girl's hair.
Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Janice

I know what you are talking about. Ive made a few basic ones for my daughter but her hair is so thick, the french clip doesnt fit right in her hair. I would like to know how to make the funky ones tho!

I know how to make the bows, I just am wondering if someone knows how to make them on something other than a french clip.

I know there is a few paid tuts that show how to do it on a single prong or double prong clip. I don't know if there are any free ones. But I'd love to know if there are! haha

I may try to play with it and see if I can figure it out!

That is gorgeous, but how do you do it, if you don't mind sharing your wisdom and knowledge?
Thanks,

I make them alllll the time lol...I've never heard of them being made on a single prong, only double prong, I actually hand sew mine to the clip. it seems slower then making them on a french pinch, and smaller (well smaller than what I usually end up with on a 70-80mm clip) because the alli clip only has so much space to work with.

What about using the smaller french barettes? Just an idea.
