There is also the smaller Mini Bowdabra, the Mini Bowdabra with the Hair Bow Tool & Ruler works great for making hair bows.

I would recommend when using the Mini Bowdabra to make rag bows that you cut the strips .5" thick instead of the 1" I used. This way you can stack more fabric inside of the towers. - The Bowdabra Bow Wire is essential too because it helps keep everything really tight.

Hey Chippychick good find!!

The Bowdabra comes in two sizes the larger "Bowdabra" size and then the smaller Mini Bowdabra. Here is a video tutorial of the larger Bowdabra. Does yours look like this?

The large Bowdabra is what I used for Rag Bow but the smaller Mini Bowdabra works great for hair bows. Here is some images of the smaller Mini Bowdabra.
