Default Gator-bite

Whats ur opinion on the gator-bite? Is it handy? I use the sally clip and my bows come out alright, sometimes alittle uneven, will the gator-bite help me?

Do they sell them in stores/ where can I get one?

I tryed ebay and etsy and no one is selling them.

I believe the only place you can buy the gator bite is at Hair Bow instructions, How To Make Hair Bows, Free Hair Bow Instructions, Free Hair Bow Making...

Someone correct me if I'm wrong!

I will tell you, what is worth it,is the shipping time to get the item. I just purchased mine early this morning Saturday 1 am and it has already shipped Saturday afternoon, I just checked the tracking and its already left the post office. I did some research here, and a lot of people say it has been very helpful. I thought the price was a bit steep, but I think if it can do exactly as what was demonstrated on the video, I will be in heaven. I sometimes dread bows, because they are often off center and I get frustrated. Hope this makes your decision easier!

You will not be disappointed. I have been using Devon's templates and the gator bite for my creasing and you get perfect creases everytime. I use waxed dental floss to tie my bows off. Alot of people also use curling ribbon. If you have CT, arthritis, anything in the hand area, this has been highly recommended

Wow dental floss, thats sound better than what I use to tie bows(yarn).
Does the dental floss stay tight when you tie it off?? I may have to try this.

I LOVEEEE my gator bite and use it with TNT...and I'm able to make bows sooo much faster!!! I was using dental floss to tie them but then came across crocheting string at walmart which works better...i got a HUGE roll of it for like 4 bucks!
