Default Re: OMG, how did I ever make bows without it?!?

I love the gator! I have fibromyalgia and my hands are often too painful to crease.....hold......get my wire in place without using it. Here's what I do.

Using the gator clip....I use cheap cotton crochet thread to tie my bow. Then I slide it out of the gator and use my wire.....I then just snip the thread and pull it out. Now I can twist the wire tighter and have a very nicely creased center that didn't hurt my hands. I can go pretty fast, if I want to. But since I only make bows for my two little granddaughters and not as a business, I don't have to work as fast as some of you might.
