Default so....

I make my bows by hand, and use a sally's clip. My issue is that sometimes I get a sallys clip that doesnt clamp down strong enough, or I find the perfect one, and then it eventually starts getting loose.

I have been kicking around the idea to buy a bow templet thing. Any good ones you use??

I LOVE my gator bite as well. I've used one for quite a while, lost it and tried Sally's clips. They were ok but no comparison to the gator bite so I bought another one. I can get a better looking crease faster with the gator bite

I have been sewing my bows using a salon clip. So with the gator bite, you aren't sewing, you are tying the bow? Do you have a problem with them eventually coming undone? Is there a type of ribbon that will stay tight while you make your "second" knot? You know when you use thread, you tie it the first time, then it gets loose as you are looping it to tie your next knot.

I like my BBM. I have had the whole set, but couldn't get the twisted down so I sold it. I couldn't do without my classic templates.

I have the ultimate bbm and it does classic bows, twisted, and surrounds. I have not been doing the twisteds very long so I have not decided if I prefer the template or if I prefer Daisy's free hand tut for them. I love love love the classic! It does not do pinwheels tho....i don't think

Some of my bows I sew with upholstery thread and others I tie with crochet thread. I can do both with the gator bite. It has a great hold and I can get my bows nice and tight either way with a nice crease.
