Default I just may be converted...

Okay, so I have been doing this for almost 3 years now (bow-making) and I have never been able to make a pinwheel - I have tried every method, instruction, etc., and just never could do it.

Well, I finally bought the NBNG templates, and even though I HATE sewing bows, tried the pinwheel, and omg guys, it is just perfect. I could cry. I think I will be sewing bows and using my templates from now on.

Thanks Devon!!!!

I have the NBNG templates and made a pinwheel yesterday. It was perfect! I used my Gator Bite and tied the center instead of sewing it. I don't think I would have the patience to sew it...LOL! You get the same perfect creases when you tie it off using the Gator Bite with your NBNG templates as when you sew them.

Okay, I keep hearing about this pinwheel tutorial by ThreeBlessings and how easy it is. I am biting my nails to see if it's easier than the NBNG way, which was super easy and super fabulous. I've got to find out what the secret is all about with this mystery tutorial. LOL!

You've convinced me. My pinwheels are crap so I just went and bought the NBNG templates. Looking forward to making some that look good!
