Hmmmm.....that is a great idea! I do have a couple of salon clips that I am not using. I'll see if that helps!

I think it takes up too much time. If I were doing one or two but when I'm making a bunch I can get more done by doing it by hand. I've thought about selling it but then I think that maybe I'll use it in the future? IDK. I also have one of the template packages too that I don't use either cuz it seems to be a pain for me. I am tempted to get the NBNG but I think to myself, will I just use it once or twice and then have it sit in my drawer too? What would be nice if I could see the templates and some of the instructions before I would buy. Just to know if I would really use (not to steal ideas cuz I know how hard the ladies worked to make them).

I feel the same way about the templates. But I already like my "system" quite well & I really don't know that I'd switch to templates even if they were amazing. I understand that they have to protect their product, but it does make it hard for me to buy something that I can't really see & understand completely beforehand.

And about the Sally clips, when I do use them, I do like the previous poster said & clip the end with an alligator clip - works great!

I use to use a salon clip to tie off my bows. Then I bought the twisted BBM and it shows you how to sew while it still on the template and I love how my turns out. And then a secret santa bought me the TNT templates. Her instructions shows you how to sew the center perfect. She even shows you what most people are doing wrong. I love both set of instruction templates for different reason. BBM is perfect for the tbb. And TNT is perfect for the pinwheel bows and all the other folds that is on there. And then also how well she shows how to tie the center of the bow. I would suggest buying then well worth the money.
