I felt the same exact way when I started making twisteds. Then, I bought the NBNG templates and the Gator Bite. I can't say enough about how awesome these tools are. I wish I was one of those ladies who can make bows freehand and who sew them. I'm a template and tie them kind of girl. Even with using these tools I still had to practice making twisted bows until I got them to look the way I wanted them. It gets better. I promise.

I bought the 12 template set and I've used everyone of the templates, but I think the 9 template set is a great set, too. If you need to add to it later on you can buy extra templates. There is also a starter kit, but you only get instructions for four types of bows instead of the eight, which might be all you need to get started. It's definitely worth the money.

Can I see some of your bows with the gator bite? Did it help with the creasing for your bows?? I'm thinking about getting it, but hesitant to spend the money. Thanks

My creases were nonexistent before. LOL! You will love the Gator Bite. I included a pic of an itty bitty bow to show you that you can make them with the templates and with the Gator Bite. Let me know if I can help with anything.
