I just saw another thread with the free tut you refer to.

Here is another one with bigger pictures.

But Hilo's is tempting if it really saves that much ribbon. However, I can't imagine how you could use less ribbon and still get the same volume.

I think they were just trying to be helpful in return to let everyone know that instead of possibly wasting time and money in supplies (and headaches) you should consider the small price to pay for something that is much better. I just recently bought the tut and I do agree whole heartedly that it is well worth all the fuss. However, I personally do appreciate you taking the time to share your find with us...you never know who might benefit from someone else's posts. I also hope that you will not be deterred from posting again...the ladies here have a wealth of knowledge and can be extremely giving and helpful!!
My sentiments exactly. Please do not feel discouraged about sharing ideas. That's what this forum is about.

Wow, I'm not sure why people found it necessary to be so mean. I think there are other ways people could have said that the other tutorial might be better and worth the money rather than calling the free one "awful" or "terrible". I feel like I'm dealing with my 4 and 6 year olds, saying "Do you want to try that again?" when they say something mean and I want them to think of another way they could have said something. I realize people get frustrated when others do something that they might not agree with, but I don't think it's necessary to be vicious.

I have made the bows both ways and like how the one from the paid tut better. However, they both make pretty bows. I posted a picture of mine made with the bought tut somewhere on here!!! I was disappointed with the size and made another one using 3 inch strips and it was better. I made one with 5 inch strips and it did not do at all, the strips would not stand up. I asked about what size other people use but did not get a response. I made using 3/8 ribbon and was wondering if 1/2 or 7/8 ribbon would work. I have a show tomorrow and have to make a lot of bows for it so will experiment with the other sizes next week.

I used 3/8 on mine and used the length suggested on the paid tut. I think the trick is pulling it tight enough. After you figure that out they stand up great. It took me a few times to get the look and shape I wanted. I also starched and baked my last ones and they held their shape a little better. I think customers like the size even though they are small because they are perfect for pigtails.

I have made them with 5/8 inch ribbon using the same lengths but they are a little trickier to make, but looked cute. If I can help anymore, please let me know.

Thank you, I might make some more tonight. After you get the hang of it they go pretty fast. Thanks for offering the tut!! I was thinking of asking $4.00 each - what do you think?

$4-$5 seems to be what most of the ladies on here are selling them for. I put mine $5 that allows me some room to do a sell on them plus its takes a while to cut and seal all the ribbon. I am always up late so if need help just pm me.

There was a post in the freehairbows yahoo group this morning.
They said to cut them 2 1/2 inches long, then seal the cut ribbon pieces edges together into a tear drop shape.

Here are the links to pictures

it is one thing to say pull it tight etc like a pp - its another thing to disclose info from the paid tutorial - i find it disrespectful to the writer of the tut. if you want to know the length then u should buy the tut. plain and simple. on all tuts they say do not share this info etc - please respect your fellow hg's
