I think I have the older Twisted templates. What are the snap ones and what do they do? Have the twisted ones changed?

Karyn,
Will you be posting another demonstration on the snap templates? I did see one but it was kind of hard to see exactly what you were doing...

lol - a pic would be worth 1,000 words!

also, i'm finding out that i can't use printed ribbon on this as the tails show the solid side
I will take a picture of how I sew both for you. And for printed ribbon, I use two ribbons. Solid on the inside printed on the outside.

They are different and you can do them as small as 1.5"!!! If you have the older ones and love them, you will love these even more!

Question, on the twisted I always end up with the bows being uneven no matter how hard I try to sew the thread in the middle of the bow when on the template (old ones, haven't tried the new)...any advice on what I am doing wrong? My bow always has one side bigger than the other.

you're asking me - lol! i only wish i had the answers! the same thing keeps on happening to me with the classic bow. . . so i'm gonna try drawing a center line on the ribbon. i can't figure out why the center slot is so wide on these templates/creates lots of room for error.

to destress/get ready for the holidays . . . i'm packing the templates away til after the holidays & then take a fresh look at them.

that bow is stunning! i never realized how much of the inner color showed and you're right - it has to be lined with another ribbon - thank you.

yup, i can see where it'd be real tough to go thru all those ribbons - but as you've shows, it's not impossible!

Thank you! It's not hard with a thimble. And it does make a huge difference. Especially with white printed ribbon. I will try to post pictures tomorrow. Busy weekend.
