Default Brilliant Bowmaker Twisted Template

Many of you know I smashed my finger pretty badly which has delayed the finishing of the book until my finger is photo-worthy. In the meantime I thought I'd share pictures


PIOG

I just wanted to share bows made with the new Twisted Template. (The original one will be referred to as the Classic Template.) These are made with the "Quick and easy" method. There is also the "With tails" method and "True fold" method. Not sure if that's what they will be called in the book, but you get the idea. None of the bows are starched, baked or tacked with glue to hold their shape, they are just "as is" so you can see the true result of the templates. If you seriously dislike them, please tell me now before I go ahead with production


The first is off the 1.5" template. You can make the bow any size, it accomodates the 1.5" ribbon. I used 24" of black grosgrain.




These next ones are off the 7/8" template.

Here's the cool part. One is a bow I made.

The other is the first bow EVER made by the tester.

She's not even crafty. I put the centers on both. We each used 20" of purple grosgrain.

I won't tell which is which.

Oh man! I was jumping with joy thinking this was the big announcement they were ready.

Are you offering this template and instructions separate? Please say yes? I'd love this template as the other bows I make are just pinwheel bows.

I just got the original system last week and have been cranking out bows since then! I was so pleased to see that you were going to be doing the twisted bows, because mine could use some work! I can't wait to order them! Hope your finger heals quickly !

As soon as my finger is photo worthy, I will finish it up. Really - it's pretty gross looking at the moment, or I would try to be creative with the pics - but I can't bend it.

I do not have a price yet. But I keep my own budget in mind and keep them as low as possible.

I will post a link to the listing for pre-orders as soon as all the items have been ordered.

Does anyone have anything they really hope is included in the book? I can still tweak it. Let me know if you are looking for a particular tip.
