Default FOE headband question

Is there a certain way to attatch a bow/flower to a FOE headband? Do you glue it onto the headband, or do you put the headband between the bow/flower and a piece of felt, i know you can make them interchangeable as well.

i'm sure people do it in a variety of ways . . . but i don't like to glue anything onto the foe . . . cause it interferes with the sizing of the headband cause that part that's glued doesn't stretch.

and i've found that repeated/extreme stretching of the glued area starts to krinkle up . . . lol - that's my quality testing method!

i'm anxious to read what other people do . . . and if i'm being over cautious. so i only put the loop on the foe/interchangeable.

Ok, this is what I do. I think I got the idea from someone on here. After I sew my foe together to make the headband, I cut a piece of foe that will go around where I sewed. I glue it on the back to hide the sewing and wrap it around the front, then glue it again on the back side. Does that make sense?? So not only am I hiding the fact that I sewed, I have a place to put a clip. I hope this helps.

I also do it the same way.
Then if you do not want to attach anything to the headband you can wear just the headband and put the interchangeable part in the back!
