Default Gator bite, TNT, etc.

Hi girls!!

I hope you can give me your honest feedback. My mom's bows aren't what they used to be.. She has severe arthritis in her hands and they get tired more than usual. I wanted to get her something to help her. I've seen different types of templates you can use, etc. But, am unsure which ones are best. Can someone give me their honest opinion. I was going to order the TNT ones but wasn't sure. I didn't want to invest the money and not be happy.

Feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Lil

I have the No Bow No Go templates and I LOVE LOVE LOVE them! I use them along with the Gator Bite to get my creases looking right. Using both tools has been a great help for me getting started!! Hope this helps you too. :-)

Thank you for letting me know... I guess no one else is familiar with any of the other ones offered... I saw one advertised on this site but wasn't sure about it...

If anyone else has used any templates to make the bows, please let me know. Would like to order them for mom soon!

I LOVE my alligator bite....but I have the TNT templates, too and they are nice. I just haven't experimented enough with them to say if they're better than anything else. But I do consistently use my alligator bite with great results for my bitty bows. I just do the figure 8, clip with the alligator bite, tie it off...and whoila (is that how you spell it?) a little baby bow!

I absolutely love my NBNG, but have never used the gator bite and do not have one. With arthritis, though, that may help her with it.

NBNG is No Bow No Go which is the same as the TNT templates. I have them too and they are AWESOME!!! You can do a search here on the forum for templates and it should come up with several past threads on these and most of the others. I think the other popular one is BBM- Brilliant Bow Maker. Good Luck!
