Default Re: Why am I struggling on a simple boutique style bow?

Tomorrow I am heading to Wally World, and I'm going to look for Sta-Flo, because I really want my bows to "Sta!"

I hear you there! I have ( a few times) succeeded and made a cute bow but then feel like it lost it's "flavor!" I bought the sta- flo stiffen stuff, and the pump is clogged and I couldn't really tell a difference the few times I got to use it lol
