| | How much time to make a bow using templates vs. free hand?
Ok, so I make all my bows free hand. I see lots of posts about the templates that are sold on the internet and it seems that people are having success with them over hand folding. However, for me, it is painful to watch some of the videos as it seems to make most of the bows using templates takes a very long time versus hand folding. So my question is, if you use a template that you purchased how long does it take to make a pinwheel or twisted bow? Maybe the videos are just long because they are showing you how to do it. I watched one video that was 4 minutes and I could fold about 8-10 bows in that same time free handed.
