Default Re: Backward Bows????

I have mentioned to a few people that theirs are backwards. Only trying to help out. The appreciated my honesty and was thankful that I told them so they didnt keep making them that way. When I was new to bow making I put mine on backwards all the time and was mortified that nobody said anything to me. I remember the day I realized it thinking how many I sold that way. UGH.

I used to do it too and did sell a few that way. Thankfully the lady that I sold them too loved them and she's also a very loyal customer of mine except now she gets the bows the right way.

I have never thought much about it. I figured that was the way people liked them?! But I haven't seen any for sale that way either.

I have seen a tut, on youtube perhaps, I don't remember which one, that said something like "flip the bow over and this is the front, or you can use it this way and ....." so I figured it was just a matter of perference and pretty common to use either side, As long as the sealed end wasn't hanging out.

I put the base bow on my stacked bows upside down. I prefer how it looks that way, really!

I'm still pretty new at all this, too. I think *shrug* that my first attempt at a twisted bow was upside down, too. Oh well. It was kind of lop sided too, but the kids wanted it on the dog ... glad she doesn't mind. It's on her collar.

I didn't ask this on your forum for fear of being attacked, just sayin

LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!! I agree!

Ditto............

and i am guilty of doing that as well when i had just started out, no one told me either.. i figured it out on my own by inspecting tons of other bows... and realized mine didn't look the same for some odd reason LOL!!!
