Default Re: bows

I learned how to make bows with wire but once I tried a needle and tread I like it better. When I use wire I could not get a good hold on the wire when I would twist it. I could not get the 3/8 inch riboon tight enough when I made baby bows. Plus when I would cut the wire sometimes I got little bits of wire that would fall on the floor. I would step on them it hurt pretty bad. It was hard to get out of my foot as well. I was afraid my kids would step on them. I use regular sewing thread, doubled up.
