Default how are you lining your clips?

I used to partially line the double prong alligator clips but am starting to see more and more done fully lined. Any thoughts? I haven't had anyone comment one way or the other, but not every customer will say something, either. Fully lined does look more "complete."

I see a lot of lined clips being sold and have thought about doing those. Right now I'm just doing them as korker and bow hardware.

I wish I could say lining those things was my favorite part of bow making, but it is not, lol!

Thanks for any thoughts!

Personally I dont think fully lined by itself stays in well at all. I recommend adding the no slip gripper (shelf liner) when they ask for fully lined.
the double partially lined stay in my DD hair better then the fully lined with gripper

That has been our experience, the ribbon on both ends tends to let the hair slide out. Thanks!

I find a fully lined alligator clip is much harder to get in the hair. Especially if your using it with ponys. I do my alligators partially lined now and the snaps I fully line.

Really it is a preference thing. I find the partial lined clips easier to get in the hair.

i just started making bows and i fully line them, but they do fall right out of my dd's hair,,, i don't think they look cute if they arn't all the way lined, what do you use to make them non slip?

Leesa, try looking at this link. It will tell you how to keep the clip from sliding out of your daughters hair.

I have purchased--ALOT--of bows, and find that I use the partially lined aligator clips the most--My girls have fine hair and I have to slip the clip through a ponytail to get them to stay in, and when I try to slide a fully lined clip through the pony--it pushes some of the hair out with the clip--then Livvy yells!!! So my preference is partially lined.

I also prefer partially lined. My girls have fine hair also and it is a bugger getting any bow to stay.
