Default Hand Tied Hair Bow?

What is a hand tied hair bow, and what does it look like?

Also, where can I find instructions (paid or not)?

No, I just don't know what hand tied is? Is it s certain style of hair bow?

I've never heard of it before.

So, if that different then hand sewn (now that you mention it)?

I am guessing they are referring to the way it is made, not the style

any style of bow could be hand tied or hand sewn

you sew your korkers, those are hand sewn; some tie their korkers, those are hand tied

Ditto. All of my bows are hand tied. I use elastic thread. Some people use wire also. IMO, tying the bow is better for th loops. When I sew the bow, if the loops are uneven I have to redo it, which causes needle holes in the ribbon. Tying is easy, if the loops are uneven, I just tug a little to adjust, then tighten my thread, and knot it.

Ahhh, that makes sense. Thanks!

Thanks for the info on what you gals prefer! I have tried hand tying my korkers but the things won't stay in one place well. I have had hubby make me something to put them in to keep them in place and you name it.

BUT ....I haven't tried elastic thread. Not sure if they would help with the tying part?

What I can't figure out is, how to make it so they don't curl around each other!!! That is driving me nuts!

See I love making them, but only if I sew them. When I try to tie them, I swear quite a bit!
