Default I have bow hands

One index finger has a burn on it from my glue gun, or maybe it was the woodburner, who knows anymore. Both of my thumbs hurt from having been pierced with needles, I have a scrape on my knuckle from pliers, and my other index finger has a callous.

Bow hands.

I lost the stand to my wood burning tool, so now I have to use a lighter and have burnt my thump nail countless times.

and everyone thinks making bows is easy and pain free lol! I have gotten to where I have to wear bandaids on my pinkies when I am making a whole bunch of bows from tying them off and it cutting into my skin Hurts like heck but the pay off in the end is worth it

Yep, mine seem to stay covered in little burn marks anymore. I hate that part! And I must be a lot stronger than I thought because I was tying off bows the other day and broke 6 strands of embroidery floss I was using as tie off, the thick embroidery ribbon and even dental floss. I swear I'm not really that tough.

I told my niece the other day that someone needs to invent some kind of little slip on burn protectors for the tops of our fingers! Anyone??
