Question What is the smallest size bow you can make with templates?

I seriously suck at making bows. I've been trying to make the itty bitty's with 3/8 ribbon and doing that fold over method and then putting the pin in the middle and sticking it to the arm of my chair and then trying to fan out the loops ... it ain't happenin'! LOL

So I'm wondering what is the smallest bow you can make with a template? I'm leaning towards getting the BBM template (just to have for making other bows) - but boy, it sure is expensive.

Any suggestions ladies?

I use the figure 8 method and use an alligator clip to hold it then I sew up the middle and wrap around and then pull tight (does this make sense)?

Yes. But my problem is that I can NEVER get the loops even. I'm pretty good at *doing* the figure 8, it's just getting everything to come out even ... and I have no patience with myself and I want it to turn out right the first time, every time. LOL
