All of the bows are consistent so any one could be sold with another to make a pair. Good luck!
Thank you for your advice everyone.
I've practiced for four years. I sew, crease and do all by hand but I'm always looking to improve. I am self-taught as most and have always made by hand. I just need to find a way to improve the consistency. I am purchasing BBM and we will see.

I'm very open to all tips and tricks. I'm not to excited about the use of a template but I'm going to give it a try

Thanks everyone. So much
