Default How do you attach a bow to a snap clip?

i'm having trouble with this one. for alligators i usually line the alligator halfway, then attach the bow and wrap the centre under the bare alligator then complete the lining of alligator. but the snap clip is just too tin to do that. and i'm afraid that if i just use glue that it will fall off after some time.

I wrap my snap clips then I hot glue the bow onto it. They haven't fallen apart yet and my dd likes to chew on them.

So far, i've sewn(tacked it lightly) it with an invisible thread(some one gave me that tip) but i hate to do that cos it's so time consuming.

any ideas anyone can offer i would be very grateful.

I line my snap clips similar to the way you all line alligator clips. Then, I make the bow (complete with the center knot). I put tons of hot glue on the lined clip and press the bow firmly down onto it. I use a clothes pin or something similar to keep the bow pressed down on the clip until the glue dries. I haven't had any problems with them coming apart and all of my bows are kid tested (plus I give them a couple really good tugs, just to make sure it has a firm hold). HTH.

That's how I do it too. Just hot glue it on.

I wrap the snap clips and glue the bow to that. (Sometimes hot glue, sometimes fabric tac)

I never thought to wrap it like I did an alligator clip...hmm, maybe I"ll have to try!
