Default Re: Using the flat side of the alligator clip as the "top"

I just completed three little ballerinas doing it that way. With the curved part up their legs looked funny so I flipped the clip over so they lay flat.

As soon as I get some sunshine I will take pics.

No kidding!!!

I never even thought of this, and even with as much as it makes sense, I wonder how customers would react...

I think I have something else to add to my 'to try' list!

Nope. LOL I have been making them flat side down on all my stuff, but I just saw them flipped and thought that might be a good idea too for some bows and clips. I stuck one in DD's hair to try it out and she didn't even notice the difference. I'm still thinking my customers might take one look and think I messed up their bows and clips though. LOL

Hahaha, so I misread what you wrote? You have already been making them flat side up? No, you haven't been making them wrong, you've just been ahead of the game. LOL Does this mean you can claim a patent on this method?

I make all of my alligator clip bows, clippies, flowers... "upside down". I have sold hundreds and hundreds of them without any complaints including my own kiddo. I do feel liberated to know that others are doing this too. While I see a lot of advantages in the upside down method, I've always been afraid some other bowmaker would see my work and think I was stupid. Now I can say that I'm not the only one!

Hmmmmm.....I will have to do a trial w/ my customers. People may look at the bow like it has grown a head around here. We shall see.

I've brought this up before myself. I still haven't tried the upside down method yet.

It seems like it would be more comfortable. I was wondering about people's reaction, though. Nice to know they don't seem to notice!
