Default wrapping thread?

ok, I have to ask even though this may be a dumb question.I normally tie off with bowdabra wire but it's kind of pricey,I have been seeing a lot of instructions say "wrap"elastic thread around the center to secure the bow.Do they mean no tying just to keep wrapping the thread around until it's secure?I am so confused.Could someone explain please?TIA~

I think you'd have to tie it to get it to stay?

I'm new, but I'm using dental floss. I make one good knot and then seal it with a lighter and it makes a good bond.

Thanks for responding!What I have been doing is just tying it off but I have seen a lot of tutorials saying to wrap it around.so tie it and then wrap it around a few times?My main issue is keeping the crease, it's hard for me to get the crease the way I want it.This is the crease I aim for with each bow
but alot of times, the crease looks like this, and I don't like it

I use dental floss also, but I sew my bows so that I can get that nice crease. Never been about to cinch and wrap.

I use DMC embroidery thread, the kind you get for cross stitching.

I use the Gator Bite to make my creases and I tie with crochet thread. I'm no good at making creases on my own and I wouldn't attempt to sew because I know I'd totally fail at it. LOL! Here is a pic of my creases with the Gator Bite.

I think I am going to buy a gator bite, some bows turn out and some don't so it would be best to get one probably!lol

I just recently moved to elastic thread and you can adjust after you make the bow!! It is really great. Then I tie an extra wrap around of emb. floss just to give me piece of mind that the elastic won't break.
