Default How many of you use templates vs. freehand?

Just curious as to how many of you use templates? And which ones do you use? I have the TOTT and have used it for all my bows so far. I only do SIMPLE stuff so far - nothing fancy yet. And nothing turns out the way I want it to - but that's another post for another day!

Only freehand. I have TOTTS, but it just gets in my way.

I tried freehand and my bows were ridiculous looking! They say it gets better with time but I was so frustrated I bought the templates. Boy am I happy I did! I use the TNT templates and love them! They help me keep it even and i was having trouble with that. My alligator clip comes today and I'm praying it helps me with my creases... I'm thinking I just don't have the fingers for bow making or something!

I just bought the TNT and havent really had time to play with them. i did try the twisted boutique on it and i guess i'm so used to doing it freehand that to me they look worse using the template. Cant wait to try the other bows though!!

Whenever I make them they look terrible with or without the template! I just cannot get those to work for me.
