Way to go, Judy! 🙂
It’s my first one and it isn’t perfect. The instructions say to cut two 8″ strips of ribbon. It looks short so I’m going to make another one and cut the pieces 9″ and see what I think about those.
Also, most of the instructions say to cover the alligator clip top, bottom, inside and outside. I was thinking that would cause the “teeth” not to grab the hair. I talked to Nicole and she said NO . . don’t cover the teeth. Another video showed using the barrette type clip and Nicole said NO to that one too so I’m glad I ordered the alligator type clips.
Here’s a question for y’all who know more about hair bows than I do . . a few, not many, of the videos showed also using thread just as security, along with the hot glue gun. Do I really need to do that? I think I’ll make 5 or 6 bows with just glue and take those to her next month and if they hold up ok for a few wearings, I’ll figure I’m good with just the glue gun and no thread, unless y’all tell me differently.
