Your bows are beautiful! Every time you post I drool! So, do you use a template or free hand for your twisted? What about your surround loops? Cut to the same size as your bow?

Beautiful bows!!
isn't it funny looking back at your first bows. when we first start out we think oh that looks good and then after months and months of making them and you compare its like OH MY WORD!!! What was I thinking trying to sell something like that!!

I LOVE YOUR WORK!!! I was at my God-Daughter's the other day and was looking at her bows to see what she needed and found some of the first ones I made still hanging on her bow holder! I tried to toss them out but my bestie wouldn't let me, she said "there is nothing wrong with them"!! I almost died they looked so bad!!

I do the same thing to my nieces bows. They will come over wearing one of my first bows. the ends aren't sealed good, its lopsided and everything else. Finally I was at my sisters and she pulled them all out and said, "which ones should I get rid of?" I threw out a lot!!!

I have two questions, how do you not get your bows to fold up and collapse onto each other? Mine always tends to want to bend in? I've tugged and pulled but still collapse in? Sometimes I get it but most of the time they bend? Making sense on this one?
And then if you free hand (I've been using templates), how do you know how to measure the surrounds? I have the surround template but it only comes in two sizes and then if I use my other templates for bows the surrounds don't fit. I wish the surrounds came in various sizes cuz making it with the template is easy.
Sorry for being long winded.

Your bows are beautiful-I love to go back and look at bows I made a couple years ago-and remember how proud I was and now they make me laugh-my daughter won't let me throw them away because she will say I had their picture made with that bow or it still matches so and so...I need to quit making for everyone else and make new ones for gdaughters..lol
