I follow the instructions and they just don't look good, the bow is even, I can just never get the crease right. I now I should just practice more, but wasting ribbon (not to mention my sanity) just doesn't sound like something I want to do. Luckily my wholesale buyer likes my headbands, pony-os and korkers and has someone else to do the bows, but it is more of a pride thing I guess...I don't want the bows to get the best of me! LOL...sorry for the rant..I just feel sometimes that I just wasn't wired to make bows....
Oh, I can SOOOOOO totally relate!!! One of these days I am going to just buy the templates, but until then I just gotta try to do bows that look even half-decent. Good thing I have a LOT of nieces to practice on--they don't notice if it's not totally perfect, they still love them!!
