Default Bow question

The tutu thread got me thinking-and I read a ton on the links posted there about bows too. Does anyone make their own hair bows? If so, do you ribbon-wrap your alligator clips? What method works the best for you?

Not me -

I have a strict bow to head ratio that prevents me from "making" bows for my daughter.
Small colored clips, great. A ribbon tied to the pony in the back of the head, fine. Big puffy ribbons stuck on their head.
too big and exceeds my maximum size ratio

I sew mine with a hand needle. Then I'll wrap the center knot around the clip and secure with glue. I then will glue a piece of ribbon on the underside to make it look pretty. I use velour ribbons a lot for that.

Laurie - love that website, although I have tried to make my own bows and failed. I found a great person on Ebay who doesn't charge a fortune to make all the ones Ashley wears.
