I had control over the colors and was able to just pull up and tie off. You have to kinda fluff it before you tie it, but it really worked for me with far less screaming!!

OH and I also found that Michaels sells pre cut dowels!! Who knew--well, not me... LOVED That!

Cost of dowels at Michaels $1.99
Cost of gas to Michaels $1.87
Cost of not having to nag your husband to cut the dowels PRICELESS!!

Have you seen the instructions on korkers on TRR.....I think they are like your bowdabra but with additional benefits like a system that holds them for you.....Haven`t tried yet but it seems to work well.

You mean there might actually be a use for my bowdabra I bought both sizes when I first wanted to make bows. They've been packed in my closet since then

Thanks for the tip. I LOVE my bowdabra, but then again I am a beginner bow maker and only make them as gift or for my dd. I have made korkers, but never even thought to use it for that!
