making hair bows and headbands

I've made them before for DD and I kinda stitched the bow to the clip because I really dislike bows that are hot glued onto the clip, then popping off sometimes after just a few uses.

What is your preferred method of fastening bows to: clips, headbands, hair ponies etc??

I have an opportunity to start making embellished tees and some accessories to put in a small gift shop. I'm looking for the best method of attaching bows to hair accessories that preferably isn't too time consuming. I find fully stitching a bow to secure it becomes rather time consuming...But the last ones I made are going on 3 years of use now....so obviously they hold up.

What do method do you prefer?

ETA to clarify, I'm talking about attaching them to barrettes not alligator clips -- which I'd be using jot glue for lol...alligator clips have never stayed in DDS hair well, so I also make bows on barrettes that will stay

Re: making hair bows and headbands

I'd why I even posted this. Pregnancy brain I guess. After I got my stuff out, I just started gluing to the barrett.

I forgot, I had done extra amounts of stitching for the ones for DD because she is a picker and will pick the bows off in one day lol.
