Question What am I doing wrong?

Ladies, I have searched the forums for making crocheted headbands and attaching bows to them and I'm lost.

I made the headband but attaching the bow is not working out. I tried to make it interchangeable with the instructions I followed but it doesn't look right to me...am I doing it right? I would greatly appreciate your help.

Thanks a bunch!

Why doesn't it look right to you?
It looks right to me. I might use a basic white ribbon though, its suppose to be discreet, so that ribbbon might draw attention to it and away from the bow, kwim?
Here's another thought. You really don't need one of those on that headband, you can just slip it through the built in loops

Thank you so much. Maybe that'a why it doesn't look right...maybe it isn't discreet enough. I will try that but to me it seems really flimsy almost wobbly. Is that normal? These are so new to me if you can't tell lol

It works better if the loop is just big enough to fit the clip as small as possible so it doesn't wobble and flap around

Yes. It will distort the headband and make it really tiny at that spot, but thats normal. If its smaller the clip will be held in place better, especially if its a bigger bow

Looks good to me but I think the suggestion for minimizing any flopping around is a good one.
