Default hair bow Instructions??? whick one to buy..any suggestions?

Hi All,
Michelle is researching girlie girl hair bow instruction but are they worth the price? The finished bows are on the pricey side :O(. I'v also looked at *LAMB's Hair Bow Instructions Combo Package and gator-bit tool? Michelle do you think that tool is worth the $$? LAMBS instructions look very detailed.
Thanks,
Gen

Personally, I don't think those gadgets--Lambs gator tool or TOTT's bow maker-- are nessesory (they'll hate me). But LAMBS and TOTT instructions are very good. I bought 5 instructions off eBay. First 3 are worthless--they are cheaper though.

If you use the gadgets, it takes more time to make the bow. The purpose of the TOTT's bow maker is to make 4 loops even which can be done without maker and save time (see the 1st post of this thread). The purpose of the gator tool is to crease the center better. I've never had problem doing it by hand--using elastic thread to wrap the center, it'll secure the ribbons when you wrapping it, just like gator tool.

By the way, I have TOTT's bow maker on my shelf, used once. If anybody wants it, the price would be $0 plus shipping (about $1-$1.5, I need to weight it).

Thanks Michelle for your insight:O), it's very appreciated. I'll just keep practicing and practicing trying to crease the center by hand. I think I'm going to buy Lambs instructions :O).
Thanks,
Gen

Wow, I have bought 4 instructions and I love Roni's. She is very nice. She also sells ribbons at very reasonable price. And in her instruction, she shared many secrets to get supplies at wholesale price. These are real secrets. Some hair bow instructions don't reveal "real"secrets and they just tell you where to get ribbon. You can find these websites by using google search. You can not save cost. But I have tried Roni's. They are real and very helpful. I felt she truly wants to help everyone make/save money after reading her instruction...

I think I am going to try TOTT...

I too purchased Ronis bowtique hairbow instructions. They are ok.. There is alot of individual folding of each loop and takes a bit of practice to get used to folding and holding everything. I think that LAMBS hairbow instructions are better. Also, I had a very long and frustrating ebay transaction with Ronisbowtique. She does not reply to emails very well. I Had to get PAYPAL involved in order to get her to answer my emails and refund some of my money for poor quality of bowmaking tools. I even called her, and still could not get a response!! It took over 1 Month to complete transaction and get my money back after returning items. I was nice and left fe neutral feedback, and she then retaliated and left me the buyer negative feedback. I WILL NOT BUY FROM HER AGAIN!! Hope you have a better experience!! I did find a wesite that has some cute hairbow instrustions. www.youcanmakethis.com There is some great stuff on that website. ENJOY!!

I did buy the Gator Bite from LAMBS. IT really does make perfect folds. IT is so easy to use. So as Michelle said you do not have to have this tool, but it does do what it says. If you go to the LAMBS website, there is a video you can watch that shoes you how the gator bite works.

- What is LAMBS Ebay ID??

- Roni's hair bow instructions starts out pretty cheap with free shipping.. && It includes his e-book and the total package.. I'm really new to ribbons and everything so at least this book will be very helpful at a cheap price. I also want to know who his ribbon supplier is. (=

- BTW, the wooden bow maker.. Is it very useful and could you make alot of different kinds of bows with it?

just go search on ebay : hair bow instructions and u'll find LAMB's. To me, Bow maker works best than without.. you can easily sew the ribbons.. that's for me though... everyone's differnt
