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

It just wasn't working in face it was slowing me down. I then decided to just try it my tying off with button thread. All I can say is wow what a difference. I am so much faster now. And each bow is just perfect!
I kinda felt the same way at first too. In the video, she does it so easily, but I don't know if it's just the thread I used or what, but I couldn't just tie it once and it stay I tie it, then thread it back through to make another knot in the back and then double that knot. It works for me, so that's all that matters-even though it would be nice if it would stay tight on the first one
