Default I heart tails-down bows!

I sat down yesterday to make a bunch of new bows to go with my DD's summer outfits. I was trying to make some twisted boutique bows, and got frustrated with them, so I decided to try a few tails-down bows, which I had never made before. They were so easy, and they all turned out so cute!! I was really impressed with how adorable they all turned out. I'll definitely be making some more of them in the future.

By the way, I used these instructions, and they were super easy! Free Tails Down Hair Bow Instructions: hairbow free directions, hair bow business work at home

Those are pretty neat instructions on that website! What did you find frustrating about making the twisted bows? I used to get frustrated myself, but I found that my biggest problem was getting my bows to crease correctly. That's when I was saved by the Gator Bite clamp. Since then, I have been a lot less frustrated

Would love to see some pictures! Thanks for the tip, too. I'm a newbie to doing bows (I've only really attempted clippies so far) so I appreciate the advice, I"m going to try making some of these today! BTW, what size of ribbon did you use? THANKS!!!

I have been kind of hit-or-miss with my twisted bows. Sometimes they look great right when I sew them together, and other times I have to fiddle with them to get them to look halfway decent. I think I just need to practice more!

I'll see if I can post some pictures. I started out using 1.5" ribbon, and those turned out really cute, but really big. (My daughter is only 2, so it may be a bit big for her right now!) I also used 7/8 ribbon and made some really cute smaller ones.

Where do you get the gator bite clamp? If it is reasonably priced I may have to get one.

Not sure of the exact price, but I know you can get them fairly cheap at Sally's Beauty Supply. Not the Gator Bite by name, but pretty much the same! HTH.

What is Gator Bite clamp? I have a problem with creasing my bows also and would love to find out an easier way to do this.
