Default Another way to crease bows.

I was having trouble creasing flimsy ribbon and when I used a large Sally clip (instead of gatorbite) my first knot kept coming loose before I could make the second knot to hold it together. So I threaded a needle and sewed down at the bottom, up through the center, and back down at the top of the bow. I wrapped the thread around the center of the bow and pulled tight. Then secured the thread on the back. I used button hole thread, which is strong, so I could pull very hard. I thought I would share and maybe this might help somebody.

FYI: I used the Brillant Bow Maker to wrap my bow and made two small stiches to hold it in place.
