Default binding layered bows

When you make a stacked bow, what do you use to bind all the layers together? I sew my bows, then hot glue them together, then wrap and sew again all the way around the bow. However, I made one yesterday and got it done and realized I didn't wrap and sew it! I'm wondering if I should give it as a gift.....I don't want to sell it if it's going to fall apart after I skipped a step.

What do you do?

Can I pick "other"? I wire my bows, glue the layers, and wire the whole stack together. I learned with wire and am a die-hard.

I am the same way!I learned with wire and I love it! I don't glue my layers though, it createds bulge I think and after I wire, I can adjust them. I am JUST starting to do my spikes by sewing though. But wire is soooo much quicker! No threading the needle and (the part I hate) knotting hte thread!!!

I sew each individual layer then hotglue the layers together. I learned with wire but I hated cutting the wire.

I sew all my bows first then hot glue them. If its not a huge bow I will sew the layers.

My choice wasn't listed above either so I will go with "other" as well I tie most of my layers with elastic cord from back to front and then front to back and add the next layer, which is usually sewn together, and tie with elastic from f to b and then f to b. I also use hot glue here & there sometimes...not as much as I used to though. I have never had a bow budge the slightest using this method and that is how I taught myself so that is my story and I'm stickin to it Isn't it funny how everyone has their own different ways of doing stuff and we all end up with bows & etc. as the end product....heehee. That in itself makes us all unique bowmakers
