With or without the templates it took me a while but then one day the twisted boutique just clicked and it is just as easy as any of the others!

I use templates I made - they're very similar to the LAMB templates and I use a jumbo salon clip instead of the Gator Bite. But I only make pinwheel bows. I kept trying the boutique bows and they never really came out well and then I realized I don't like those as much as the pinwheels anyways, so I said "Forget it!" I keep considering buying one of the templates, but I'm not sure I want to spend the money.

Before the bbm kit ( all 3) I could not make a cute bow or surround to save my life. I made a thread the other night with the pink and green guitar bow with the surrounds, clasic and twisted bow, I think it came out good for like my 2nd twisted boutique bow.

Freehand. I bought the templates a LONG time ago and just cannot do anything with them. I need to give them another try.

I use the TNT ones with every bow I make - I love them! Freehand? Are you kidding? I wouldn't even have something resembling a bow! I'm always in awe of those who can freehand their bows.

I love the NBNG templates. They have helped me to be consistent with the size of my bows. It's easy to sit with a roll of ribbon and just crank out lots of bows and they all look the same thanks to the template. Just wrap,sew and fluff, easy!
