I asked Allison about the thread. This is what she said..."The thread I use is just regular sewing thread, Coats All Purpose Dual Duty. I just wrap it and pull till it
almost breaks then wrap some more and then pull til it breaks. I have nver
had a bow come apart on me..." So there it is. I think I will be buying some. lol

anybody get this right? I love the technique to make the bow, but everytime I try to fold the bow (make the crease) it falls apart. I haven't tried sewing it yet, I'm just so frustrated with the creasing part!

do you think the sally's clip technique would work to make the crease for this bow? Off to try it out.

I will have to try your way, I still can't get these to come out right. Tried one yesterday and it looks floppy. I do better with the smaller and simple bows.
