I have the BBM temlates and I use the woodburner and burn a couple spots in the center of the bow, then clip it and tie off.

I use upholstery thread now. My first bows were made with dental floss and they smell like mint.

When I sew I use embroidery thread, if I just wrap it I use elastic thread so that it's easy to move it back and forth if I need to center it.

I use embroidery thread. It is strong enough for me to yank and pull on it w/o breaking.
