I completely free hand. It is faster and after 8 years, I can eyeball everything. Also, I use elastic thread, much easier on the hands and quicker to tie off. I can fold and tie only about 75-100 bows in an hour depending on size. Not sure how fast at gluing since I usually have my part time employees do that.

- Measure & Mark
- Pin middle
- (On the pin part) I shape and pin the shape in place (adding 4 more pins - usually do this on a pillow or my bed ... haha)
- Sew down the middle & tie

My method is time consuming but I love the shapes everytime. I'll try to post pics soon.

I just make the boutique bow using TNT template and then "twist" and shape it. Then i starch and bake and they look perfect! I COULD NOT get the stupid twisted bow any other way, but I think they turn out pretty good this way.

Would someone post a pic. pretty please or at least and a link to what they look like. If they are the one I think they are I try to crease my ribbon first and do the figure 8 method to. This is also the first bow I tried to learn and so far have done decent at them.
