Default My underneath looks terrible.

I tried doing a search on this before I did the thread but couldn't find anything.
So I was wanting to sell some of my loopy bows that I have put on a
metal barrette and I don't know if it would be acceptable to have the underneath looking like it does with all the thread wound around the barrette. So my question is do you do something to hide it or what? Would love to see a picture if you do do something to make it look better. For me it wouldn't bother me but I would never want someone to not come back because of the underneath of my bow LOL.
Thanks!!

You could cover it with apiece of ribbon. There is a good picture in step 14 of the loppy bow instructions here

I just trim and heat seal a piece of 3/8" ribbon and glue it to the underside. Just make it short enough that it doesn't get caught in the clip.


ETA: Woops...should have scrolled down for responses first!

we need a thanks click button in these threads so we can click thanks when so many people help us, I have seen them in other threads but usually the private ones you pay for.
