I don't like the Gator bite either. I sew mine also.

Ok-- this might be a stupid request, but could someone please post some pic's of a 2 fold center as oppoesed to a 3 fold?? i am not sure I am understanding. I don't use anything to crease my bows - but I ussually make big bows, I don't really make any smaller than 3 1/2". I can't seem to do the smaller bows -- they are hard as heck for me to get the fold to look right. Is this what y'all use a gator bite on??

If my camera was working (batteries are dead and I can't find the darn charger - I am losing my mind) I would take pictures. I am so excited. This will make things SOO much faster!
Does anyone have a pic of the clips from Sally's? I'm getting my alligator clips from there & they are beginning to recognize me. Scary.

I've tried both the large metal sally clips and the shorter plastic sally clips and my gator bite wins hands down over them both. It has a much firmer grip and gives me nice clean creases every time. I use thin cotton crochet thread from walmart to tie my bows off
