Default Re: For those that TIE their bows...

This weekend I made a bunch of bows with the flat center and the thread didn't show through. I use the Gator Bite, so when I tie it I bring the thread up from the bottom to the top and tie it, but no in a knot so it lies flat. Then, I turn over the Gator Bite and tie several knots before I cut the thread. I learned that if I only tie it once or twice that it will slip out of the knot and come undone.
