Hi everyone
I'm making bow ties for a dance group. I originally put elastic on the back to put around the neck but some of them droop and they need to be pinned. Does anyone have an idea how to make or where to get a bow tie clip to slip maybe over the button perhaps.

Well, here is one idea but haven't tested it so not sure it would work.......... do you know the little hairclips that bend to open and snap back to shut? Don't have any idea what they are called other than hair clips.... anyway, you could slip them in there somehow and clasp the bowties to the shirt!

well, here is a link.....I found this and I know you can buy them really small and in all colors
Hair Ornaments (TAICON INTERNATIONAL (H.K.) LTD, Hong Kong)

I know you can buy these in a quilt shop cuz alot of quilters use them to hold their bindings down!
