Default Calling all ladies who can help with creases

I am still ranting about the dang boutique bow lol.

Anyone here have any tips for creasing those bows or does anyone have links they could share? I have the bow mastered and it looks like it could be cute until I ruin it with a butchered crease lol.

Also does anyone notice that having longer nails makes creasing bows harder? I have naturally long nails and have noticed sometimes having them is helpful when making bows, but when it comes to the creasing sometimes it makes it harder. Any long nailed bow makers out there? lol

Check out Youtube, there was a tuturial for a boutique bow and you crease it using a Sally clip.

Thanks so much, that technique was a heck of a lot easier for me actually. I still need a bit more practice but creasing my bows that way is making them turn out a heck of a lot better than they have been turning out lol

you know at first I was having a hard time doing the creases, but I used elastic thread at the time. Now I just sew the crease and it has helped big time. I just weave th needle in and out and gather it go around the crease several time with thread and tie it off. I still use elastic thread at times, but I real like the the sewn look and its more sturdy.
