I LOVE my Gator Bite! I tie my bows off, shape, then run a needle through them.......

I hope y'all aren't just trying to be nice! I wasn't expecting anyone to think I was doing a good job! Guess I am more critical of myself that anything!!

May invest in the gatorbite. Nothing is more frustrating that getting a fold just right, then having it slip before sewing!! I love the Sally's clips, but they don't always hold tight. And with satin, they do not do much good!

I have the Brilliant bowmaker, which of course holds it in place as you sew it. But I like using all 3 systems for variety (BB, NBNG, hand folding.)

I've recently heard about the Lil Hiccups system. Is that another freehanded version? Anyone with experience with that?

I pretty much only use ribbon from Hair Bow Center. It has just the hintiest hint of sheen to it and I just love it!

I do work with some HL and RABOM, too.

I have been experimenting with reshaping some bows I've made in the past. Hated bows that I glare at whenever I look at them.

I must say that being told I just need to reshape them, rather than trying to do something different, has helped!!!

And my past thought has been NOT to starch too much because bows I see in boutiques do not ever seem to be starched to death, I have found that a few squirts of spray starch is doing the trick!

I am very happy! Hated bows are suddenly finding themselves displayed on my ribbon holder!

I did just buy the lil hiccups instructions. I am always looking for small subtle differences in instructions that might be the "wow" factor for me improving myself. And tomorrow, Gator Bite in my cart! Can I get the gator bite through this site? Or do I just need to go to her website?
