Default Which Templates should I buy?

I want to order some templates today. How many do you have? I was trying to figure out if I should order the 4 piece or the 9 piece? Or should I wait until I have more money and buy the 12 pieces?

Do you use the TNT templates or the ones from LAMB or somewhere else?

Which templates do you use the most? Suggestions appreciated.

I really need something to do the easiest twisted bows possible. Those are the only ones that give me grief.

I have the 9-piece TNT ones (I loooove them!) Hoestly, some people still have problems doing the twisted with the TNT (which you mostly do off the template, but the instructions are great!). I have no problem doing the twisted with these, and I couldn't do one to save my life before I got them! I mostly do basic boutiques, twisted boutiques, and pinwheels with these templates. Even folds every time! I highly recommend them

Love love love my NBNG templates but I did order the twisted templates set (from Karyn at littlepinkladybug) and will hopefully get it soon! So I can't give a review on it but I have heard WONDERFUL things about it and you acutally make the bow on the template and I think that'll help more. I have the 9 piece NBNG set and it's perfect sizes!!

I have the TNT and i really do like them. it took some practice to make the twisted boutique but now i've got it. i also started sewing my bows and that helps a lot. i was just tying them off but sewing makes a big difference.

DITTO! I love my NBNG TNT Templates! Use them all the time and the bows come out very nicely. As someone mentioned above, most of the twisted is done off the template, but the template helps you make sure you get very even loops. HTH!!

For twisteds, I use LittlePInkLadybug's twisted template.

Tells you how to make twisted sewing, tying or using gator bite. I can make twisted easily and quickly now!! They were my arch enemy before this template!!
