Default Re: 3/8" twisted or boutique bows

No i just free hand my bows i dont use the figure 8 i use the mark and fold type method but i just eyeball it, what i do is bring the needle and thread up the middle then i put it over the top of the bow and pull it straight down, that gives me my first crease then i flip it over and turn it upside down (holding the first crease in place) and again just pull the thread down to make the next crease then i wrap it around a bunch of times and voila
